Google Flights now featuring RouteHappy flight data


Notice something new on Google Flights this afternoon? Take a closer look at the amenity details offered under any given flight and you’ll see things like in-flight entertainment details, whether the flight will have wifi and just how likely you are to find wider seats or more legroom in the cabin.

That’s all thanks to a partnership with RouteHappy, the company focused on aggregating and rating happiness factors to help passengers choose a better flight. RouteHappy’s proprietary database of data is now linked in to the Google Flights system across the globe. That should make for lots more Happy passengers.

  1. Hmm, I think it was there before in some way, but anyway, happy to see it, except where it’s wrong?
    e.g. it shows Wifi on Delta A332 SEA-ICN, when Delta itself doesn’t show wi-fi

    GF is now my default search engine, while Google Hotel Finder is my hotel search default

    1. I believe it was in beta before so you may have seen it.

      As for the wifi on the A330s, I know DL was in process on that front. I’m not sure where the status of that deployment is but I would not be surprised if RouteHappy has more up-to-date data on the situation.

      1. I would’ve thought Delta.com is more updated than RouteHappy?

        This is the A332 from my Delta “My Trip” link. No WiFi

        I know some Delta planes has Wi-Fi (over the ocean)
        It’s frustrating because my domestic connections to DTW (CRJ) and DTW-SEA (737) have Wi-Fi, ha ha, while the Widebody does NOT.
        I’m still buying a 24-hour pass anyway, and hope for the best

        1. The 24-hour pass doesn’t cover the long-haul flights IIRC so you might lose there anyways. As for why the smaller planes got it first, turns out that putting a system on the ground in the USA was easier and cheaper than putting one on planes using satellites in space.

    2. You’d be surprised how much international Wi-Fi Delta actually has online today if you do a fair bit of digging.
