DH wants to vaca in Oahu this December. I welcome the experience but the thought of a 10+ hour flight gives me major anxiety. Now I have no FEAR of flying but I do HATE being confined to an uncomfortable seat for long periods of time. All of my flights thus far have been four hours or less and usually by then I am more than ready to get off of the plane. Friends who have traveled to the island have told us that first class is the only way to go. Bummer because there is no way we can afford it...this trip will be on a budget. Alright enough background...now to the point. I guess this is a question for frequent flyers. Would it be better if we booked a non-stop direct flight for this trip or a flight that offers one connection? Is it better to just get it over with so to speak or make a stop to be able to stretch and walk around? Or is the hassle of making connecting flights (checking in, security, etc) all over again make it not worth it?
