When flying, it's not only quicker to fly nonstop, it's also greener. Choosing flights that have connections means you're contributing more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere with your travel choice. A tremendous amount of fuel is consumed for takeoff and landing, which can mean you're doubling or tripling your fuel usage, depending on the number of connections you make. Another bonus of flying nonstop: You won't get stuck in a connecting city if your flight is late.
