Usually the following: 1. Time it takes 2. Time it starts and whether I'll get sleep + If i'll have to take an off. 3. Cost (after considering 1,2) 4. If Costs are too high, optimise for either 1 or 2. 5. If that still doesn't work out, buy the cheapest ticket + plan a day/time to recoup. All of this goes out for a toss if there is a +1 or family involved. Then we just optimise for everyone's convenience.

The time between plane departures. I've had a lot of situations when my flights were late. Sometimes this can make things messy (especially if you are in a hurry) :/

Price, time it takes, whether there are any changes (prefer direct), time of day, ease of getting to the departure point, if it's an airline - their policy on luggage And because your question made this pop into my head - have you heard about the airline that helps travellers to avoid being sat next to screaming babies? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/busin...
