flight-monitorWell known travel writer Chris McGinnis, from Travel Skills Group, Inc., recently published an article defining the distinction between direct, non-stop, and connecting flights.

Non-stop: A nonstop flight is a single flight between two airports with no stops.

Direct: A direct flight makes at least one intermediate stop along the way to its final destination, but has only one flight number.

Connecting: A connecting flight will take at least two different planes with two different flight numbers to reach the final destination.
