Consumers shop for deals and like to have a variety of options to choose from, with the goal of saving money without sacrificing quality. As a parent, I would love the option of picking cheap flights at reasonable times at an affordable price; there's nothing worse than having to drag your family to the airport to catch a red-eye or a 5 a.m. flight.
