Fly.com: Google Flight Search is struggling, lagging and lacking
Warren Chang, general manager of Fly.com thinks that Google’s flight search product is still lagging far behind other airfare search engines on the market.
Warren Chang, general manager of Fly.com, wonders about all the fuss regarding Google Flight Search.
As head of a rival flight-search engine, Chang points to Google Flight Search’s lack of comprehensiveness regarding airlines, online travel agencies and fares, which means the product trails the offerings of competitors such as Fly.com, Kayak and Bing Travel, to name a few, at this early stage.
“I think it is surprising that six months after beta launch, Google’s flight search product is still lagging far behind other airfare search engines on the market,” Chang says. “And I don’t buy Google’s position of wanting to grow incrementally, so as to benefit the traveler.”
