Re: How far out of the way will people connect?

Back in May, I went to Houston from San Francisco by way of ORD and DFW on my first part of the trip and by way of DFW and LAX on the second part of my trip in order to rack up miles. SFO-IAH nonstop roundtrip is 3,270 miles. I ended up flying 4,668 miles, which is only 1,400 more flying miles.
