Google Flights will now predict airline delays – before the airlines do
Google is rolling out a few new features to its Google Flights search engine to help travelers tackle some of the more frustrating aspects of air travel - delays and the complexities of the cheaper, Basic Economy fares.
With the regard to delays, Google Flights won't just be pulling in information from the airlines directly, however - it will take advantage of its understanding of historical data and its machine learning algorithms to predict delays that haven't yet been flagged by airlines themselves.
The additions seem especially targeted toward today's travel startups and businesses, like Hopper which had just added hotel search, and uses big data to analyze airline prices and other factors; or TripIt, a competitor of sorts to Google's own travel app Google Trips, which most recently introduced security checkpoint wait times.
