Technology & Tourism Thursday - Google Flight Search

According to  Google is planning to expand its Flight Search product to other countries around the world.  First of all, I love this product.  The website's interface is clean, the search capabilities are excellent and the ability to easily control and manipulate the search is astounding.

The expansion of this site could lead to real competition for OTA's (online travel agencies) such as Travelocity, Kayak and Expedia.  With the airlines unhappy working with the OTAs in general but not being able to really do anything about it because customers prefer them, Google maybe their escape.  This will be a fascinating story to follow over the coming months.
