      The most fear people have when flying is when they have connected flights, especially with a short window.  What happens if the plane leave 15 minutes late and you have one of those connecting flights where you will BARELY make it???  Well, most of the time, it's a gamble which is why it's always best to have a layover of about 2 hours because most likely you won't miss it.
