Flying Overnight: Benefits of Red Eye Flights

If the thought of taking an overnight flight leaves you speechless and horrified, you probably haven’t been told the many benefits it brings. Red eye flights are characterized by planes taking off after 9 p.m. and landing around 5 to 6 a.m. While most people still prefer to be asleep in their own bed (or just an actual bed!), there are also those who enjoy sleeping on the plane and waking up with a whole new day to begin with. If you’re wondering what the benefits are, just keep reading:

Most Passengers are Probably Tired

Sleeping isn’t any fun or restful when people are constantly talking or moving around you, and that’s a usual scenario when you take a day time flight. However, parents with young children tend to avoid overnight flights, so that gives you a more comfortable pocket of time to truly get in some much-needed shut eye.

Claim your Luggage Faster

You’ve probably heard of quite a few airport luggage stories, or even experienced it yourself: lost bags, delayed bags, and even people accidentally claiming the wrong bag. Whichever the reason for your loss or delay of obtaining your belongings, it’ll all be reduced on overnight flights since there will also be fewer passengers.

Maximize Your Daytime Schedule

There’s lots more for you to do during the daytime compared to when night arrives, so don’t cut your activities short or move your schedule up just to accommodate a day flight. To truly maximize your time, you should seriously consider taking a red eye flight and spending your pre-flight time on other activities.

Less Possibility of Losing Personal Items

When lines are long and people are impatient, things tend to go wrong a lot more often. If you’re not in favor of losing or misplacing your personal belongings, you might want to consider taking a red eye flight. After all, it’s a lot more peaceful and quieter at night, and airport staff are also more likely to notice if something is left behind at the scanner.

Flights are Often Cheaper

Have you noticed how some flights are cheaper than others even on the same day with the same airline? Well, timing has a lot to do with it. When it comes to the less popular red eye flights, you might even get to enjoy less than half of the rates offered for day flights.

Avoid Rush Hour Traffic

Getting stuck in a jam while you’re rushing to get to the airport is really no fun at all, and you’ll even have to leave earlier just to ensure that you don’t miss your flight. Driving at night will greatly reduce hassles on the road, but it’ll still be better to get someone else to pick you up or drop you off, and that’s where our Chicago limo service can help. Not only are we there to provide you with a comfortable ride, you can also rest assured that our chauffeurs are some of the best drivers on the road. When you need transportation to or from the airport, don’t hesitate to reach out to our Chicago airport shuttle. We provide customized solutions so don’t hesitate to contact us as soon as possible to discuss your specific travel needs.
