For international Flights it seems many times there may be only one flight from a big city to an international flight/destination elsewhere for that day. If there is some type of mechanical problems than your entire schedule has to be changed because that means you may have to wait till the next day to fly if the airline only has one flight.
From Houston using Turkish Airways, there is only 1 flight that goes to Istanbul for the day. But that flight is also the same flight that just arrived in Houston 2 hours prior. It seems that could be quite dangerous to fly that long of time with only 2 hours or 1.5 hours to check the plane for any type of mechanical problems. Eventually a schedule like that would not work out well once the plane gets a bit older.
I guess my main question is, do you generally seek airlines that ofter more than one flight to a city you are visiting internationally the same day or do you usually just take the risk and pick whichever one has the schedule you want the price you expect it to be?Edited: 1:49 pm, October 08, 2013
