Google’s newest Flight Search Hack is raising a lot of questions. It seems that when you search for flights, Google will tell you which carrier has the cheapest fares so far this month and next. How does it work? Did someone hack their system? Should we be worried about our data privacy?
Google’s new “google flights” hack is a tool that allows users to search for flights using their phones. Users can also use the app to track and compare prices for different airlines.
Google’s Latest Flight Search Exploit

News and tidbits from the internet:
- A couple who attempted to flee Amsterdam tells their version of the story, claiming that they were held at the airport and quarantined after one of them tested positive for Covid-19, but that four further tests came out negative.
- Amtrak is thinking about removing Bank of America as a co-brand card issuer.
- For many years, my first stop for flight searches has been ITA Matrix, which is now owned by Google. It was only a demonstration site that does not accept reservations (though there was a hacked together tool that would take its results and let you book them). It’s simply the fastest and most powerful method to search, whether you’re looking for a certain cost, itinerary, or airlines, and then narrowing down your options depending on length of trip and other factors.
It’s ancient, and the backend is out of date and unmaintained, but some Google employees are moving it to a new platform to keep it alive. The updated website may be found here. Of course, the majority of you will just utilize Google Flights. (Image courtesy of Miles Earned and Burned)
[A] group of devoted Google “20 percent time” volunteers has been working to rebuild Matrix using newer web technologies like Angular while preserving the majority of the original functionality. … Use the new Matrix to find itineraries with the same level of flexibility and power as before, including route and extension codes, calendar searches, filters, and time-bars to display the results.
- Waving down a Southwest Airlines jet, a woman dashes onto the tarmac at LAX.
Wow, I’m sitting here at @flyLAXairport @SouthwestAir, and this white young girl rushes out the door and onto the runway, attempting to flag down a jet. It seemed like the cops waited an eternity to arrive. She would be shot if she was Black (with no questions asked) pic.twitter.com/85IPXbnVi1

- To be honest, she’s fortunate she wasn’t imprisoned for stealing the automobile Hertz refused to give her.
Over Thanksgiving, I had a really bad experience with @Hertz.
This is what occurred and what I wrote in my letter. We’re alright, and Thanksgiving went off without a hitch, but I believe this is a deceptive business practice, and I’d want to bring it to the attention of others who don’t or can’t. pic.twitter.com/cr9haMSeXd
