Regardless of the time of the year, flight time still matters. Personally, I will always take the first or second flight of the day. As I write this, I’m flying late afternoon/early evening and guess what? My flight is delayed! The silly thing is the sole reason I ended up taking this late flight rather than one at 7:30 am ended up being a none issue yet as feared I’m dealing with what it seems a slightly delayed flight. Thank goodness for airport lounges and all boy having to wait 5 minutes to make it through security.
