Overall, I think Google does a remarkable job at representing a key user problem when researching flights -- users are often left to question, "Is this really the best deal? Can I do better than this price?"

I think those sentiments are representative of a lack of trust that exists between users and flight-booking / travel websites, and Google makes up for that because of (1) the brand and (2) the easy and straightforward UI.

There is still a need, though, for a different "version" of flight browsing, which has more to do with an exploratory "I-don't-know-where-to-go-or-when-yet" mentality, which is more aspirational than anything else. Additionally, it could do a little bit better with sharing data trends/flight insights (when to buy) at first glance instead of being 1-click away (less discoverable for a novice user).

With all the above said, this is my new go-to app for flights! 😅

Pros:

• Fast

• Trustworthy (more on this below)

• Easy UI

Cons:

• A little harder to do open-ended queries

• Not as optimal for booking vacations (exploratory)

• Flight insights are less discoverable

I think the app is great for booking flights, I've used it about 10 times and everything has been ok

Pros:

Easy to use, provides offers from many companies, loyal to customers

Cons:

I'd like Google Flights offer more deals or discounts

It is a dealbreaker for me this difference in price still inside Google Flights, if it was something like: the company changed the price and Google didn't notice yet would be fine but this ruins the experience of searching for a cheap flight.

Pros:

Simple and clean UI

Cons:

On multiple searches/flights it shows a price in the list but when you click it it shows another.

Clean, clear, and powerful - but it is not a one stop shop, could be if it interfaced with more sites ...

One of Google's "hidden" gems

Pros:

Clean interface, powerful search, great graphics

Cons:

Doesn't always find the cheapest fair, or the shortest
