    Hi all,

    Have any UK users of Cortana found that the Trip Planner works? Just wondering as it will hopefully be a useful feature when I go away soon. The only problem I have is that I understand it works by Cortana finding the details in emails, but the confirmation emails have gone to another email address (not mine). I'm wondering whether if I put the flight details manually in the calendar Cortana will pick this up, or whether simply forwarding the email to my Outlook account will work. So just wanted to see what people's experiences had been like so far.

    Cheers.

    I never got it to work. I don't think Cortana looks for flight details in the calendar and it never recognised my confirmation e-mails (namely from Easyjet and Ryanair here in the UK). The only way it worked for me was to ask it directly ("track flight so and so"). I imagine it still only works with American airlines.

    I'd love if it worked with train confirmation e-mails as well, that would be quite useful!

    It did work briefly with European airlines in the early US version, but recently (read: at least two and a half months) doesn't do the trick. The typical confirmation email that I get looks like below - and it gets 100% success rate with TripIt, so it shouldn't be too difficult for Cortana either... It is really annoying that it doesn't do what it should.
