There’s a method to that madness, says TripIt: “Whether it is higher quality entertainment systems or better meals or just a happier crew, ultra-long-haul flying does come with some benefits compared to the shorter hops more commonly seen.”

– Seasonality. The best time for a flight is in the summer, right? Nice weather, everybody’s happy, probably going on vacation, less chance of a weather-related delay. Well, you’d be wrong. It’s January, when start-of-the-year optimism is at its height and crowds are low. In fact, January travelers rate their flights 39 percent higher than June travelers.

– Amenities: TripIt compared and analyzed six different responses to amenities, including seat comfort, cabin service, food/beverage, entertainment, Wi-Fi and other. It found that amenities such as high-quality Wi-Fi and entertainment (which data shows travelers want) aren’t nearly as impactful as comfortable seating or good cabin service. In fact, seat comfort is six times more important to fliers than Wi-Fi, while good cabin service is 2.7 times more important than quality food and beverage.
