Bon Voyage

Which is the best day of the week to fly?

Saturday. The airlines offer fewer flights on Saturdays, and that translates to fewer delays, shorter lines, and less stress and aggravation for you. Air traffic controllers say if you fly on a Saturday, you’re more likely to arrive on time, and if that weren’t enough to convince you, Saturday is one of the cheapest days of the week to fly, according to a statistical analysis of millions of airfares. (Tuesdays and Wednesdays are also cheap days to fly, while Sunday is one of the most expensive.)

When is the best time of year to go to Disney World?

The fall. Of those who pick the fall, some say September and others, November. If you have school-age children, both choices will require you to yank them out of school for a couple of days. September is peak hurricane season, but it’s less hot and humid than in the summer, and crowds are down, as are off-site hotel prices. In November – pre-Thanksgiving only – the weather is cool but pleasant, and the crowds are way down and Christmas decorations are going up.

When is the best time and day to see the Mona Lisa?

9 a.m. Sunday. One of the biggest complaints heard about the Louvre is the long line to see da Vinci’s masterpiece. Get there as soon as the museum opens on Sunday morning, when Parisians and tourists are more likely to be sleeping late. Chances are there still will be a line, but it will be shorter than just about any other time you go.
