Care to increase the odds you’ll be happier on your next airline flight? They you need to know about Routehappy.com.
Right now it’s a website, though an app is apparently in the works. You type in where you’re flying from and where you want to go. Then Routehappy gives you options of flights with accompanying ratings meant to show you which flights might be most enjoyable.
How does the site measure happiness aloft? It considers the model of plane on each route, the seating arrangements, on-board amenities (such as Wi-Fi or power outlets), and reviews by other flyers.
It also looks for the shortest route and easiest connection and then combines those parameters to come up with a happiness rating from one to 10, with 10 being the highest.
You can also click on specific airlines and read passenger reviews of their flights. And, no, they’re not all negative. And there’s a blog with some extra postings that tell you, for example, how to get out of Delta’s Terminal 4 at London’s Heathrow airport. Hint: It’s tricky to get to the train downtown, and it’s even trickier for someone coming to pick you up to find Terminal 4!
