Kayak (KYAK +2.7%) rallied today after CEO Steve Hafner declared on CNBC (video) that Google (GOOG) isn't a threat to the travel search engine. "Google has had their flight search and hotel finder out in the market for two years ... it's an inferior product," Hafner asserts. Kayak and Google have a complex relationship: about a tenth of Kayak's traffic comes from Google queries, and the company relies on data from Google's ITA Software unit. Kayak opposed Google's purchase of ITA last year.

    Google flights is by far the BEST airfare search engine out there. Not all bogged down with clutter and ads. I'm sure most people don't even know about it. Check it out for yourself. Its the only air travel site I use. I would say that all the travel sites have A LOT to worry about if more people discover how AWESOME Google travel is!
