Thanks Google

I have an early flight from Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen airport to Ankara this morning. So as soon as I woke up I wanted to check whether my flight is on time.

I typed “Sabiha Gokcen departures” into Google, expecting that I’d need to then click on the link to Sabiha Gokcen’s website where I’d need to then search for my specific flight. Instead Google showed me the result below.

Since I was also logged into Gmail, Google had already searched my email and surfaced my flight itinerary. It had then cross-checked the flight code with its database of flight departures and was able to show me that the flight is on-time. This saved me 5 minutes on my way to the airport.

I felt like I was living in the future. Thanks Google.
