There is nothing worse than waiting for hours at an airport to call to board. Flight delays are a big problem not only for the airline, but also for all travelers who will arrive late to their destinations. Google wants to use machine learning to detect which flights will be delayed , even before the airline itself knows it.

This new feature will be available on Google Flights , a Google service that may be less known than the hundreds of buyers’ websites, but which occasionally finds bargains. Now, when you review the available flights you will have much more information than what was shown before, including information that you will not know until you reach the payment gateway, such as baggage restrictions.
For example, on cheap flights, a notice will be shown stating that you only need to carry a suitcase, that when booking a specific seat it will cost you money, that you do not have improvements on the flight or that you will not even be able to upload more than one piece of luggage.
When searching for a flight on Google using the flight number (normally two letters followed by four numbers) the search engine will show a striking red warning that the flight is delayed and for how long . It is not that Google guesses, but uses data from past flights to understand that if several previous flights were delayed, this will also.
Using historical flight data, our machine learning algorithms can predict some delays even when this information is not available to airlines and delays will only be shown when we have an 80% prediction security.
The good news is that this will be displayed normally before your airline does. The bad thing is that you will surely be at the airport, wishing to leave that uncomfortable seat and reach your destination.
