Seems like you did, but did you try searching both business and first? Sometimes they differentiate the 2.

Does google flights calculate discounts like Jetblue Fall sale in to the price they show?

This does not seem to be available in the play store depite this statement of theirs



Yes! All extensions submitted to the Google Web Store undergo a review by Google for security and safety before being permitted to publish or update. For users with Enhanced Safe Browsing turned on in their browser, Google flags extensions created by new developers who have less than a few months of these approvals. Since Points Path is new, it hasnít yet met that threshold, but it will in due time. In the meantime, you can install it knowing that it has undergone the same Google review as all other extensions.

ETA: Found it here https://chromewebstore.google.com/detail/points-path/kblbdlhoeakihpcaimpdjnfkjffnhhej

Did anyone notice on google flights when searching for a round trip from a city with multiple airports (like NYC) it will show you options to depart from all 3 airports, but once selecting a departure flight it will only show return flights to the same airport as departure, potentially sometimes costing a lot more money vs for example departing from JFK and returning to EWR.

that's not the case for other search engines like kayak, scyscanner etc.

@Dan can you please bring awareness about this so they could fix it, I really like using google flights but for RT from NYC I just can't use them.

Part of the Appleziation of Google, they try to keep it "simple".

Yes. I usually search with Kayak or another OTA and if I see multiple different airports Iíll search GF as multi-city XXX-JFK, EWR-XXX
