If my income depended on a space like travel, where Google products are being developed and featured, I would probably be up in arms. As it is, I mostly touch these spaces as an end user and I always had a dislike for organic results for generic travel searches. They just didn't provide the kind of dependability I was looking for, and I think my experience was pretty common.
I couldn't agree more with that statement. I dislike that Google is moving in on travel sites(and content sites in general) since that's not what I want from Google but at the same time the top results in Google didn't satisfy me either. I now use a specific travel site to do my booking and I'm 100% loyal to it, I don't need or use a search engine to find it.
I'd be loyal to one airline carrier too, I do have my favorite, but the rates fluctuate so widely between airlines at times that it doesn't make sense.
