I'm seeing results revert back to the old interface here in UK now.
Is that for *exactly* the same terms? There really is a bit of hit and miss in how Google is determining whether a query brings up places:
[ pluralsearchterm ] > Yep, places.
[ singularsearchterm ] > Nope, organic plus 1 map result, no places, no 7-pack.
And other simple searches I've played with over the past couple of days also appear to be erratic. Sometimes places, sometimes not; sometimes 7-packs, other times not; sometimes images, sometimes not.
Edit: Had pural & singular terms switched.
