Does it really work?

Not very effective monitoring.

Not very effective monitoring.

Either the system has blind spots right where this sign is, or it doesn’t work at all, or whoever watches the monitors doesn’t care.

Mom, is this our plane?

When I saw those, I initially thought, “Oh, so now they show the actual plane that is going to fly us. How neat!”. Then, however, I realized that the pictured craft looks “a little” bigger than what typically flies between San Jose and Los Angeles (300 miles). And yes, the actual plane was somewhat smaller:

Aw, what a cutie!

Aw, what a cutie!

Not that I was severely disappointed but still, why not show the actual plane? I think that would be quite cool and requires very little effort – this is the Silicon Valley, after all.
