Headlines and stories about digital developments stole the week. Google Flights has a consumer-friendly redesign that replaces an unattractive map and widgets, while Ctrip pounced on its newly acquired Trip.com domain and turned it into an English-language version of its signature Chinese site.
Meanwhile, Air New Zealand is hooking up with Swiss-company Winding Tree to see how blockchain might fit into the airline's passenger services system, and AccorHotels is building a smart room prototype so the guest of the future has more gadgetry to regulate the damn thermostat and curate streaming content and tunes. If the news pace was dizzying, kick back and get your bearings with this week's stories below.
