Google Flights recently underwent a redesign, unveiling a new interface and additional search functionality. After a soft rollout, Google has since rolled out the new Google Flights on a larger scale.

But, not everyone has found the new interface to be as easy to use as the older version. If you fall into the category of Google Flights users wanting the old site back, good news: There is a way.

When you get to the Google Flights site, click the little figure that appears to be running at the bottom left of the page. Without any further clicking, you'll be taken back to the older version of Google Flights.

While the new Google Flights interface does offer increased functionality and search criteria, most of the complaints have been that the new site requires more clicking in order to get the results you want on the first search.

Of course, this switch to the old interface is entirely voluntary and not required to search for flights. But if you're missing the old Google Flights, this is a good solution. However, you'll have to do it every time you visit the site.

Unfortunately, for both versions, Google left out the option to filter basic economy results, however, there is a Chrome extension that will help you to do that.
