"When traveling overseas, I exercise, shower, then get an early but decent sleep. Domestically, I prefer leaving late morning/early afternoon despite the risks. However, for work trips, scheduling is often out of my control."
"I don't care about arrival, only departure time. I leave in the morning, as I can't sleep on planes. If reaching at 5 a.m., I book the hotel a night early and inform them in advance about my early check-in. Never had any issues."
"I always opt for the day's first flight which avoids most problems. I never check bags, preferring to carry a small pack. This allows me to use airlines like Spirit and Frontier. Since the bag is light, I can easily manage it. Despite a preference for a post-flight shower, I avoid later trips to mitigate risks of delays."
"We typically fly US to Europe, most being overnight. After landing and airport procedures, we check into our hotel. If possible, we get an early check-in, shower, lightly explore, have an early dinner and go to bed. No naps, however tempting!"
"We usually opt for early morning red-eye flights and late evening return flights due to lower costs and fewer delays. We typically stay at a specific hotel chain, arriving early to freshen up and rest before starting our day. The evening flight home provides a relaxed end to the trip."
"I prefer flying late for short 2-3 hour trips. I leave after work and arrive around 10-11 PM, going straight to bed. This saves vacation days and I wake up fresh. For overseas trips, I aim to land around 2 PM for early accommodation check-in and fight jet lag."
