The mystery of the crossword clue ‘Desirable flight option’ seemed to have a clear solution: the answer had to be a term that would definitely appeal to a frequent traveler. But which one? As I begin to think more critically, I realized that most people don’t like layovers, and a direct flight was the obvious answer. But there was one step further I could go: most people didn’t even want a layover of one or two hours. There it was: the answer that fits the bill. A ‘NONSTOP‘ flight, where the traveler can relax for the entire duration of the flight without any interruptions or stops. That was the most desirable flight option! Solving this clue was all about putting myself in the shoes of a flyer and understanding what they would want in an ideal journey.
