I often fly at odd times of the day, sometimes to get better connections, but other times to just avoid the crowds. Today I came home from Florida and I had an awful connection. I flew way past North Carolina to Philadelphia and then spent 3 hours in the airport of the city of brotherly love. I killed a lot of time by searching out places to eat, and then eating. But each flight, from Ft Myers to Philly and from Philly to Raleigh were less than a quarter full. One was a big plane and one was a small plane. And the number of seats sold had nothing to do with my bad connection. Each of these individual flights was way undersold. This is something I’m going to pay attention to, because after years of completely full flights I am traveling on more and more planes with lots of empty seats.
