Connecting Flight: A flight that requires the passengers to hop from one plane / airline to another at an intermediate point, as called a connecting point to reach their desired destination.

Stopovers: Similar to a connecting flight, but with a much longer transition (Waiting time between flights).

Checking the weather of each stop is ideal when doing your own research when considering transit flights. Be sure to look up different weather types around the time of your desired flight time. Be sure to check the different regions.

For Example: If you’re flying from florida to Canada, and you booked a flight with stopovers, there might be an issue if there’s a hurricane or tornado, in the flight path.

  • What if you have a busy schedule and there’s no way to research all of this? Easy, you can use the inbuilt Wi-Fi during your luxurious limousine ride to the airport to check weather condition prior to ticket confirmation.

Packing light is key for an efficient air ride in the sky experience. When you pack light you can take your luggage on board along with you. This will reduce the chance of something happening to your luggage when switching flights.
Trust me on this one, it’s a hassle when you’re in a different state… and so if your luggage.

Tip # 2: Try “Originating Flights”

 Originating Flight: First flight of an itinerary, the top most flight listed on a ticket.

Early is key!

Tip # 3: Early Bird Catches The Worm

  • When selecting your flight, be sure to book your flight as early as you can. Never book last second, you’ll risk losing your seat to someone else and have to re-plan your trip. Very time consuming.


  • Selecting flights for the morning will save you from falling into the pit of potential flight delays.Throughout the day, flights have a higher chance of being canceled, anything can happen, weather, plane maintenance, etc.etc.. Let’s choose early morning bookings!

Tip # 4: Opt for the working days

Booking your tickets for the days such as Wednesday and Thursday could be advantageous as in the middle of the week, fewer flights are operating due to lesser number of travelers. Majority of people prefer traveling close to the weekend/holidays and thus more traffic is observed during those days increasing the chances of air travel delays.
