Now, from Google Flights, you land essentially one screen prior where you have to choose from the various fares offered. I assume that's to allow for the various warning and disclaimers to pop up. It could make booking various mileage/segment runs directly from Google Flights a lot trickier.
The Matrix power-tools script frequently breaks when AC updates their website and dump you into either the first page, or somewhere in the search process. I don't know what other airlines do, but it has not occurred to AC to publish & maintain a stable external interface to the public website into booking flights.

Google has some smart people. It'll get fixed.
