DATA to Insight

Airline itinerary

The way that airlines and travel agents organize flight information is inconsistent and often quite confusing. Here is an alternative that shows the key information in a table.

    The flight day and time are organized by most significant unit: YEAR-MONTH-DAY HOUR:MINUTE
    Times use the unambiguous 24-hour format.
    Airport codes, names, and locations are shown below.

The datagraphic from is one example of the probably hundreds of formats used by airlines, travel agents, fare aggregators, travel search engines, etc. There is too much whitespace and the connecting information is not shown.
