Travel Grant: Practical/Economical Flight? watch

    Applying for the travel grant and wondering how one is to define the most practical/economical flight which is the criteria for student finance.

    I'm going to New Orleans in August for the year and there are direct flights available for around £1000 which takes around 10 hours, or you can get connecting flights which take it up to 20 hours+ but cost much less, more around £400.

    So where does one draw the line for the time/money trade-off in this situation? Obviously it's a big inconvenience to have to spend almost a full day travelling somewhere you can travel in half the time, but direct flights are so much more expensive.

    Can anyone help me with this?

    So the economy class direct flight is acceptable even though it is much more expensive?
