---- Google Flight Search Engine Debuts

Let's hope that Google doesn't get outrageously opportunistic and have a Travel link from its main menu on the home page, with dropdowns to, say,...
Search flights Find hotels Get airfare deals
...and... at the top of major destination-related serp... feature booking forms and price comparisons for both flights and hotels, presenting comparison data in ways not possible for independent travel agencies or individual hotels. Google might even put beautiful travel photos on its home page (hint hint wink wink nudge nudge).
That would be crossing a line, and it would put many past, present (and future?) clients at a big disadvantage. I wouldn't be happy about it at all.
Hmmm. Sounds familiar... where am I seeing this now?
