Do a search for: tampa bay city hall
Look at the search results. What is the deal with the Flights from Tampa, FL to Bay City, MI flight search box? This is pretty pathetic from Google.

It matched "Tampa" and "Bay City" as 2 cities, so it gave a link for flights with those cities...I don't see how that's pathetic. Just because you didn't find it useful doesn't imply it was pathetic, especially when it's obvious how your search criteria could have triggered such a result. Now if they had a flight search box for Los Angeles to Chicago based on that search term, I'd agree it's pathetic.

I agree, maybe "pathetic" was a little bit of an overstatement on my part but I don't see how anyone could find a "Flights from Tampa, FL to Bay City, MI" box useful for a tampa bay city hall query. Can you?
