How Google AI predict flight delays

An Artificial Intelligence system usually learns by examples. Using historic flight status data, Google's machine learning algorithms can predict some delays even when this information is not available from airlines yet.

"We’re at least 80 per cent confident in the prediction. We still recommend getting to the airport with enough time to spare, but hope this information can manage expectations and prevent surprises," says Google in a blog post.

How to check flight delay
Go to google search bar and type in your flight number. That's all.It will give estimated time of departure and arrival along with other information like terminal,gate etc.. 

Here is the search result for Lufthansa LH 401 New York City to Frankfurt flight on 4th February 2018. You can see that Google predicts Flight may be delayed by DELAYED 1 HR, 50 MINS. Reason for the delay is also included. However google suggests 'confirm flight status on an airport monitor'.
