One thought on “What are the best times for a leisure traveller to depart and arrive a destination?”

  1. Had a connection at HKG, it took 2 hours, I nearly missed my flight.
    Also, I think that people should depart in the evening, so you get better airplane food. (At least, on some airlines that is), and I’d rather pay for an extra night at a hotel and be ready to tour the next morning, instead of going in the morning.
