Google Flights - unable to get to UA booking screen?

I noticed something the past several times when I have tried pricing out itineraries on Google Flights - if it says 'click here to book on United', and you click through, it re-runs the search for your dates on .bomb. It used to take you right to a booking screen - it would be helpful, because it would let you book an itinerary that would be difficult (or non-existent) to find on UA's website. Is anyone else noticing a similar situation?

FWIW, the itineraries today that I was having getting nowhere with was EWR-CDG/AMS on UA metal, with CDG/AMS-ZRH-EWR on LX metal.

I experienced that last night. I didn't think much about it, and I had to stop flight searching anyways.

Yep, I've been having this problem since Sunday.

It was really annoying because .bomb wasn't displaying the UA-AI combo I wanted, so I had to book on an OTA instead.

I had the same issue last night.

Hoping this is a temporary bug.
