At some point during traveling, we will always experience at least one long layover we just can’t avoid. Or if you are very much into traveling, you might experience several layovers in different parts of the world.
Flights with layovers typically cost less than direct flights. The problem is then you’d have to wander in a foreign airport, or watch the clock time and again, browse the bookstore, or simply do nothing and get bored. And if you are traveling with kids, layovers can become all the more frustrating because then you have kids to look after while being mindful about flight timings, boarding all at a foreign airport.
