#OribtzFail: Check out this flight option for a trip from Tampa to Tallahassee


This was the first entry returned for a search of round-trip flights from Tampa to Tallahassee next Thursday.

Put aside the $786 cost of the ticket and look at the details of the flight. Leave at 7:45 a.m. from Tampa with a stopover in Ft. Lauderdale. Arrive in Tallahassee at 6:35 p.m. This leaves you just fifty minutes to meet your return flight, which, oh by the way, lays over in Atlanta before returning you to Tampa at 10:09 a.m. To recap, that would 27 hours away from home for a fifty minutes in Tallahassee.

And who says Florida’s capital is remote?
