It’s no longer secret to say that people today prefer the airlines for the trip, especially for the long haul. At least there are 7 main benefits provided by the airlines that can’t be afforded by the others.
It’s obvious that airplane is the fastest long distance public transportation in the world. It only takes a few hours above the sky to across the continents, while it will need at least a few days journey if you travel the same distance by land or sea transportations.
This benefit makes us having more time available for enjoying the traveling than wasting it on the way to reach the destination. It means more times to discover more places in one trip!
Maybe you wonder how can it’s said the cost of the flight tickets is way much cheaper than the sea or land transportations while it obviously mentions the opposite.
At the first glance, we can say it’s true that the airfare is more expensive. But, the more we do the calculation, the more we realize the truth that the airfare is more cost saving according to its time efficiently (specifically for long distance trip)
Travelling by airplane brings you only have to pay the price one at the time in the first place. You pay the flight tickets and the rest is to enjoy the flight. On the other hand, if you take the sea or land transportation, you will have to spend the other expenses during the way. For instance, you pay a few hundreds IDR for the bus ticket from Bali to Jakarta. The journey to reach Jakarta takes at least 2 days and 1 night by bus, where you still have to cross the sea with the ferryboat. It takes 2-4 visits in the rest area where you will spend more money to eat and shop. You have to go through the rough and long journey before arrived in Jakarta. Do your own calculation about this and find out that the benefit of this point is definitely true.
Travel by airplane brings you only have to sit in comfortable aircraft for a few hours while waiting the arrival time. You don’t need to switch from one plane to another and move your baggage for the couple times (even when you need to take transit flights). While you travel by bus or car, you need to hop in and hop out couple times to take a rest, have a meal, take a shower, filling the gas, etc. Such a wasting energy!

Imagine how many thieves are there during one trip inside the bus or train
