Heading to London Heathrow? Save money and time.

London Heathrow Airport - LHR. "Delta arrives at Terminal 4, which is a pain to get out of with the commuter train. First you need to take the free Heathrow Express to Terminals 123 and from there choose between the Heathrow Express (expensive, frequent, fast), or the Heathrow Connect (half the price, half the frequency, only 10 minutes longer)." -Jose D, on Routehappy
Want more great tips to get to and from London Heathrow? Or would you prefer to research the other options in town: London City in the Docklands financial district, Gatwick off to the south, Stansted to the northeast, Luton to the northwest, or Southend to the east? North, south, east or west, Routehappy has you covered with great real-world flyer reviews.

Haneda kind of rhymes with Canada, if you’re wondering.

Los Angeles LAX to Tokyo TYO (HND or NRT): Haneda or Narita in Tokyo? You might not know that Tokyo's city center Haneda Airport now takes international flights. Just two of the dozen daily nonstops from LA land right in the center of town. Look for Delta or ANA All Nippon from LAX to HND.
There are good reasons to fly to Tokyo Narita too — mainly if you want to connect to somewhere that isn’t Tokyo — but if you’re heading to Japan’s capital then Haneda Airport is a great option.

Herringbone style seats: agree or disagree?

DL - Delta Airlines. "This plane has the angled individual seats in Business Class, which was a first for me. The set up took a bit of getting used to and I did not like not being able to see out the window during take off and landing." -Janel P, Sydney to Los Angeles, on a Delta 777, on Routehappy.
We love Janel’s expert tips — she’s a frequent flyer and it shows. But do you agree about Delta‘s 777 flat-bed seat, the one in the herringbone pattern? Share your thoughts in a comment, or hit us up on Twitter and Facebook.

Atlanta-Detroit flyers on Delta, listen up.

Atlanta ATL to Detroit DTW: Want more space on board? Delta has ten flights a day between Atlanta and Detroit, with eight different jets. only one is a more spacious Boeing 767 with roomier seats. Pick wisely, and fly better.
Finding a widebody jet like the Boeing 767 means fewer neighbors to climb over — and often wider seats with international-quality amenities.
