While search for flights from New York to Krakow for my parents, I came across this gem:
Finnair, $1203, total time: 66h 30m
New York -> Boston, followed by a 21h 30m layover
Boston -> Heathrow, followed by an 11h layover
Heathrow -> Helsinki, followed by 21h layover.
Helsinki -> Krakow.
For $80 more, you can take a Czech Airlines flight that gets you to Krakow in 13 hours.
I do not understand why anyone in their right mind would choose option A. And I do not understand why airlines think that anyone would consider taking 3 days to go what could be covered in a direct flight in about 8 hours. How is this considered ok?
