When you do flight related queries for travel, often you would see a search box at the top showing the vertical search feature from Google Flights. Well, it seems the number of times that box shows up has significantly dropped over the past 24 hours.

Reshav Singh notified me on Twitter that they are not showing up as much and asked me if this is a bug or a feature. I was able to see them for some test queries but it seems he is right, there was a huge decline in how often they will show up.

RankRanger's SERP tracker features shows it went from showing up for 0.77% of the queries they track down to 0.28% of queries. That is a pretty big decline!

Here is their chart:

I wonder if this is a EU regulation change or a bug or something else?

Forum discussion at Twitter.

Update: It is coming back...
