FlyteBoardEver made a mad dash to the airport only to discover your flight is two hours late? Such a fate might soon be obsolete, thanks to FlyteBoard and FlyteChannel, two products from FlyteSystems (, based in Franklin Park, Ill. FlyteChannel is a customizable feed that hotels can add to guest room TVs that shows the same flight arrival and departure data you’d see at the airport. FlyteBoard is a flat-screen display with the same feed, now being sold to hotels and convention centers. Planners also may rent the display for meetings.
