How Do I read the Results?
Total actual traveling time
The total traveling time is the actual amount of time the trip takes from your departure city to your final destination, according to your itinerary. This calculated time takes into account changes in time zones, time spent in transfer cities and daylight saving time (DST).
This indicates the difference in local time between the departure city and the arrival city. If the results are shown with a minus sign (–), you have to set your clock back the given amount of hours. If this result includes a plus sign (+), set your clock forward the indicated number of hours.
Apparent traveling time
The apparent traveling time is the difference in local time between the departure city and the arrival city without taking into account the change of time zone. For example, if you leave Los Angeles at 09:00 (9:00 am) and arrive in New York at 18:00 (6:00 pm), then the apparent traveling time is 9 hours. However, the actual traveling time is only 6 hours, because you subtract the time difference between the cities, which is 3 hours.
The calculated total distance is the total distance traveled from departure city to arrival city, which includes all transfer cities. The distance is displayed in kilometers or miles. You can change this in the settings.
Average traveling speed
The average traveling speed is estimated based on the time of departure and arrival given in the travel itinerary. The average traveling speed does not take stop-overs into consideration; it is calculated as if you keep moving continuously.
Current time and weather
This information displays the local time and weather conditions in the departure and arrival cities at the time you calculated the results. As time and weather changes, go to our World Clock to get the current time and weather information, as well as the weather forecast for your departure or arrival city.
Sunrise and sunset
The local times for sunrise and sunset in the departure and arrival cities are based on the time when the upper part of the Sun becomes visible above the horizon, while sunset is when the last part of the Sun is about to disappear below the horizon. Hills or mountains are not taken into consideration.
Length of day
The length of day calculates the current date’s time from sunrise to sunset for the departure city and arrival city. You can find out the length of day for any date or location with the Sunrise/Sunset Calculator.
The international dialing codes for the departure and arrival cities are displayed here if you need to make a phone call to someone in another country or if someone is trying to call you from another country. If you are not quite sure how to dial the number, you can get more help with international dialing codes on our website.
The time table
The time table breaks down the travel itinerary from the start destination to the end destination, including all transfer cities if applicable. The Event column lists the starting location followed by all transfer cities and ending at your final destination. The Time since column indicates the accumulated total amount of time spent so far in each part of your itinerary, which totals to the total traveling time. The columns located under Local time in show the local times in all of the selected cities at each step of the itinerary. The times highlighted in bold correspond to the departure and arrival times located in the Event column.
The map shows the shortest possible path between the selected cities, but the actual route is usually longer because flights do not always follow the shortest route. The map projection makes land and oceans much wider near the south and north poles. The heading/course/bearing during a flight varies in most cases.
