I tracked this with trip.com after hearing what happened, I was curious as to what it would tell me and this is what I got:
#11 Departing Logan Intl, MA 8:00 am In Flight Above Jersey City, NJ 29,000ft 358
Arriving Los Angeles Intl, CA 10:37 am 2458 mi E
Does trip.com's tracker acctually update according to where the plane is? Or maybe they just do it kind of in general and assume the plane would be at 29 thousand feet that far into the flight? I suppose the speed may be correct though.

Flighttracker is nice, but it's by no means accurate. I used to watch planes out my office window on final to DCA, then check on flighttracker to find they're still over West Virginia or some other state.
