Google Flights Reviews
People all around the world rely on Google search results, filtering, information. It’s like heaven sent an easier way to find stuff and facts you need to know without taking time go sift through a library. If information is now all over Google, is Google Flights concise and legit in providing travel information?
How Google Started
Google Flights is one of the functions of Google search engine. Google was founded by Mr. Larry Page and Mr. Sergey Brin. In 1996, Mr. Page and Mr. Bin were still PhD students at Stanford University when they came up with a research project, later on known as “Google”. Google was officially a private company on September 4, 1998. The aim of Google was “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.”
The current Chief Executive Officer of Google since August 2015, Mr. Sundar Pichai, is a 43-year-old American-Indian technology executive. He is a graduate of Metallurgical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology.
How does Google Flights work?
The interface of Google flights is plain and boring. It’s the usual layout with the option to search flights either roundtrip, one way or multi-city. The option to select customers’ location and destination with the date is also shown as the page’s functions. Selecting a class from Economy, Premium, Business, and First are options to choose for search results as well. Search results can be filtered by the following: airline alliance, numbers of stops, ticket prices, and duration time.
Some featured top destinations are shown in thumbnails of pictures next to the Google map picture. For you to explore using the world map, Google Flights has the Explore Map options which are located at the top left of the page: three parallel line buttons give customers the function to explore maps and saved flights.
Once customers search, a list of flights showing price, time, duration, and stops are listed but not from the least but by time of flight. Though, a box of categories is separated to show the best flights.
Google Flights was launched in 2010, but the mobile version was left out. However, after a year, Google announced that users can now search travel deals from their mobile browsers. When combined with the recent launch of Indoor Maps, Google now provides a nice one-two punch for frequent travelers. Google Flights now also has a mobile application for the PC version. The mobile version or the travel app is free to download and is rated with 4-star reviews.

I have seen a lot of Google Flight reviews, however my overall thoughts about them are it’s just a search engine for travel but with less information than other companies. You can’t even book a flight. Yes, it displays list of prices from airlines, although, if you decide to book the flight you have to go to another site. I would prefer using another flight search engine to book my flights.
