What Is A Direct Flight?
A direct flight is known or can be identified by a single flight number. A direct flight can be a flight without a stopover (stopover means flight linking point A to B without landing in between).
A direct flight with a stopover this means linking point A to B with one or more stopover, usually for the purpose of refueling aircraft, well this all depends on the situation on ground. Though you may asked to remain on-board the aircraft while passengers disembark and new passengers board, you may also be asked to move over to transiting point.
