Making a decision on which flight to take is about to get a tad easier, as Google Flight Search results will soon display amenity information for each flight.
The new information is the result of a partnership between Google and Routehappy that will integrate flight amenity data, such as whether a flight has in-seat power, Wi-Fi, and ample legroom, into Google Flights results.
The various amenity details that will now appear in Google Flights results worldwide are what Routehappy calls "Happiness Factors," all of which the service derives from number of different sources:
Routehappy researches and verifies flight amenities by aircraft, cabin, schedule, and route on a constant basis from hundreds of disparate sources to create Flightpad, the most comprehensive, accurate comparable product attribute dataset for flights worldwide. Flightmatch is a set of powerful and intelligent algorithms that dynamically match and score Happiness Factors, duration, and ratings for billions of possible flight combinations.
So, in other words, the next time you're searching for a flight using Google Flights, you'll be able to compare the amenities each provides — which should make it a tad easier to pinpoint a flight with all of the right entertainment options to kill time on your next trans-atlantic journey.
