Wow, we're now adding and up voting Google products now? Sad.

@fbara What's sad is hating on devs that clearly put in a lot of hard work to make something cool and intuitive just because they work for a popular company.

@fbara Doesn't matter whether it's a big company, military, startup or just a small kid, if the product is good we should upvote it

@fbara Indeed it is really a awesome tool for finding flights, It is beautifully explained here https://ca-political.com/google-...
It actually looks really good. I like the map view. It reminds me a bit of AirBnB when scrolling in and out of locations and the results of accommodation changes, but in this case it's all the different destinations you can fly to and the results on the left change on the fly as you scroll in and out. It works very well. I wonder, does Google earn revenue from this product?

@wadim_dominik_grasza My thoughts as soon as I went in and have a look. On the plus side google sometimes don't keep things forever, they experiment, play and then discard.

it's faster than other flight search engines

Pros:

I like the look & feel, makes price comparison easy, no need to scroll below the fold to access the recommendations

Cons:

lack of promotions, deals, incentives

Just tried it to book a flight and it's actually less useful than it was before. Mainly, it doesn't show you other nearby airports options for the return leg of a roundtrip flight anymore (Kayak's 'hacked fares')... Some of us who will wander a metro area with multiple airports do like the option.
