3) Long layover flight alert
On International travel generally there is a layover. This layover if too short can cause heartburn to the user as the chances of missing connecting flight increases in case one flight gets delayed. Also sometimes the layover is very long like a day or more. In this case customer has to wait at the airport. We enable customers to choose the right option by highlighting the alert in case customer is choosing an option with short or long layover.
