How to deal with a short layover?

  1. If the layover is very short, you can contact the airline to change the flight so that you can avoid delays for the flight.

  2. You can sit at the front of the plane as the people who sit in the front leave the plane first, so sitting in the front seat can help you leave the plane without wasting any time.

  3. You can avoid carrying checked baggage, which could be time-consuming, but to save time, you should only take the carry-on baggage for the short layover flight.

  4. Make sure to eat the food on the plane so you do not have to stop at the airport to eat anything, as it may take time, and you might get late and miss your flight. 

  5. You can also reach the flight attendants and airport staff; you can ask them about the gate for the next flight and from where it will depart, and they can help you.
