    Hey peeps,

    Any of you guys seen this?

    Let's you compare flight prices from various places and even allows you to use the map, so you could potentially fly somewhere much cheaper and travel from there. Brilliant idea and doesn't have any ads etc, since It's the 'Big G'.
    Haven't booked anything through it yet, but It's gotta be of use to some of you that travl a lot. Could even be used for those that haven't booked flights for the conference yet! Let me know if you find a cheaper way to get there, could be useful.

    I don't know how long this has been around, but I thought the whole way it has been designed is brilliant. I read that It's coming to Google Now in the form of 'Cards' too, so that would be good to see as well.

    Thoughts?

    I've seen it around 3-4 weeks ago while looking for a flight
    the thought that went through my mind was "Oh no, another niche owned by google"

    I noticed this a while back on Maps.

    Selecting 'flights' as the transport mode now also shows the cheapest airfare.

    It's a nice addition I think.

    Results are almost identical to skyscanner, though the latter is a tad better. Will continue using skyscanner anyway, google may go to hell.
