I am reopening the ticket since the issue seems to be different that just showing the indicator when the suggestions load slowly as in T178145: Show a loading indicator for suggestions.

I've updated the description to clarify what the issue is about.

@santhosh, is this actually a feature?

@santhosh, is this actually a feature?

Not really, For the language pair in the context, suggestions from CX and suggestions from recommendation system is requested in parallel. Suggestions from CX include my 'favorite' list, 'featured' list. Favorite should be displayed always. Featured should be displayed only if suggestion from recommendation tool is empty. The reason is 'Featured' list is not personalized and hence low quality compared to personalized suggestions.
