I saw recently that Google Flight Search (which I assume came as a part of the of ITA acquisition) has launched so I was eager to give it a try. I fly quite regularly (this year though I have driven more) and was excited to see what cool things Google would bring to flight search.
NOTE: I don’t see any “beta” tag or “preview” tab in anything here so I’m assuming it is a full product
I live in Grand Rapids, MI and have to make a connection anywhere I go, makes getting status on hops/segments pretty easy and there are no flights available between Grand Rapids and anywhere
That’s right no flights available. I played with the “Any number of stops” section, “Any Airline” portion, “Any Connection”, etc and still nothing. Next try was a location that flies directly from Grand Rapids: Chicago, Detroit, Dallas/Ft. Worth, etc. and nothing. No flights available at all. Maybe I was looking at the wrong date? Tried changing dates and no flights.
However I live in a big city (hub?) there are plenty of options and the system looks great.
I really enjoy how quickly it seems to respond and I like the different options.
However I will probably never use Google Flight for booking my travels. Sorry you loose
