Google Flights is a metasearch engine tool that pulls up flight schedules, itineraries, and seats in order to show users flight prices on hundreds of airlines. It is not an online travel agency (OTA) like Priceline or Orbitz, but rather a search engine that uses a global distribution system to tap into the flight inventory offered by almost every airline in the world.

Google Flights allows users to book a round-trip, one-way, and multi-city tickets, as well as business-class tickets. It also provides an interactive calendar and price graph to help users find the best fares. Additionally, it has filters such as cabin class, airlines, and the number of stops which can be used to narrow down search results.
Google Flights also has an Explorer option which can be found on the left-hand side when on the Google Flights page. This tool allows users to input their departure city or airport, destination, dates, and other information in order to find all available options with various filters such as sorting by airlines and airline alliances.

Overall, Google Flights is a powerful tool for those looking for cheap flights or trying to earn elite status with airlines
Googleflight vs Kayak
Google Flights and Kayak both allow users to track flight prices over time and offer filters to narrow down search results. Google Flights is faster than Kayak and offers a calendar view to search multiple dates. (Googleflight)
However, Kayak has more filters and allows users to search for hotels, cruises, and deals. Additionally, Kayak often finds cheaper flights than Google Flights. Both services have their advantages and it is recommended to use them together or with another flight search site for the best results. (Googleflight)
