Hello and welcome to the Official Thread of Simple Aviation:
What is Simple Aviation
- Simple Aviation is a topic of me, putting everyday facts, and turning them into simpler facts for you to understand. I take everyday wiki facts that some people can’t understand and I turn them into simpler form. This is not subjected to copyright however I kindly ask that you don’t use this title.
Our Story Coverage Today: Hello aviation enthusiasts, and welcome to the thread. On today’s story, we have something quite interesting. Google Flights will be now operated by the company Google in a really unique way! The website is to provide travellers with new and incoming delays of nearby aircrafts, and calculates the rest :). “With the regard to delays, Google Flights won’t just be pulling in information from the airlines directly, however – it will take advantage of its understanding of historical data and its machine learning algorithms to predict delays that haven’t yet been flagged by airlines themselves.” says an article (will be down below). The website is also going to predict incoming weather, late arrivals and incoming ETE.
Here is a clear example! The website shows us the flight, departure and arrival time! etc.
Purpose of the site: To now better inform travellers if their flight will be delayed (easyJet), cancelled (RyanAir), or on time (I dont know what to put here). The site gives great feedback from anywhere in the world and offers some great feedback. Next time you fly, might want to check the site for your flight :).“You can track the status of your flight by searching for your flight number or the airline and flight route, notes Google. The delay information will then appear in the search results.”, which means your never going to go blind or expect the aircraft to come at any time (Southwest).
REAL LIFE EXAMPLE:
- Here we can different flights to different places, get the best deals, and book it easily! Google says that its AI are very up to date on current events and certain things. Here is a positive, “Since you can’t take action on the alerts until the airline makes an official announcement, they will largely just cause more anxiety on top of your already stressful travel experience.”
My response: I believe that this A.I is helpful however, I am concerned about the safety and information going out. Even A.I’s make mistakes. I am not 100% positive as well that their specific algorithm. Websites like flightradar24, foreflight, etc, are more in depth helpful to many passengers as they provide more information, but a good sense to know where the aircraft is and if it will be delayed or not is quite useful.
- In conclusion: This is a type of website that would have to partner with other aviation websites (flightradar24) to get more accurate updated information about the flight your about to take. The website is used for checking flights, booking flights, and keeping updated on flights. Thats all today , thank you guys for taking the time to read through the article and make sure to check this out for yourself, signing out, my name is Ryan, this is Simple Aviation, have a great week
