Google Flights prediction AI can beat airlines in announcing delays

Elsewhere, Google Flights will not only now tell you that a flight is delayed when it's announced, but it will also show reasons for the delay.

Despite the new airplane delay predictions, Google still recommends getting to the airport early, and that it hopes "this information can manage expectations and prevent surprises".

With Google Play Protect now running on over 2 billion devices, it's probably the most widely used malware scanner in the world. Google likes to boast of its ability to shut down Android malware , and it apparently has good reason to brag about 2017.

Delays are inevitable, but the good news is that Google Flights is going to make our lives easier with a new feature that will not only explain why a flight has been delayed, but will actually predict delays as well.

The company says it is using data from the airlines as well as machine learning technologies to anticipate the length of delays. It will now predict when a specific flight being searched for is likely to encounter a delay.

A new feature also was added to Google Flights to identify the cheapest fare for any destination.

This could help with making arrangements at the other end of the journey, but Google is still advising folks get to the airport on time. The delay shows up in a red flag directly in Google Flights next to the rest of the flight information. These "basic economy" options might be wallet-friendly, Mathur and Danciu wrote, "but it can be confusing to understand whether important options-like overhead bin space, ability to select your seat, and baggage fees-are included in the fare".
