I fly from Scotland so always fly indirect which usually is 3 flights.
I don,t have young children so it is not a problem for us.
I normally fly KLM/Airfrance /Delta and the flight prices change daily,out of my last 4 trips the most i have paid is 390 pounds

I've flown indirect from Manchester with Delta to Atlanta and then on to Orlando also with Delta. Atlanta Airport is a wonderful place and not confusing at all although they quizzed me at length as they couldn't understand why a traveller wanted to go on holiday on his own!

Having finally passed through immigration, I took the Airport's own underground subway from an international pier to a domestic one and was amazed at the on site catering available.

Another matter to consider is that with each change of aircraft comes the possibility of baggage going missing. It happened to me once when changing at Gatwick from Manchester when on the way to Miami when the label fell off my case. There's nothing worse than standing at a carousel when all others have gone and there's no sign of your luggage. My case turned up two days later.

Having looked at the latest price difference between direct and indirect flights, I'm not sure that it's worth the hastle and time wasted of indirect flights. I'm flying direct to Orlando shortly and by booking in advance and with my trusted agent, I'm only paying around 30 pounds more than an indirect flight. I call that money well spent as I can save that by not using the the Airport Lounge and using the train to the airport instead of paying for parking charges.

We fly either direct or indirect, this year indirect.
It has as well as good savings in flight costs, there are other advantages, as clearing US customs in Dublin and arriving at MCO as an internal flight, so no Customs queues at MCO, plus I like flying, so get to fly different planes :-)

I've just arrived in Orlando from Heathrow via Atlanta. It was a breeze. Cleared customs in Atlanta in around 35 mins. We had time to kill as our connecting flight was 2 hours later but it went quick and the flight was only 1 hour. We were driving away in our Sixt rental car in less than 45 minutes after walking off the plane and that included collecting three checked bags.

I know some people question the savings of flying indirect but if you have to travel within school holidays they can be over half the price and when you times that by four it's well into four figures.
