## “This one's quite a bit cheaper... but it has a six-hour layover in Atlanta.”

You're flying overseas for a family event. You're looking for cheap plane tickets now with your wife. You found a flight that costs less but takes a long time. You point it out to her.

This one's quite a bit cheaper... but it has a six-hour layover in Atlanta.

### (something) is quite a bit ( more/less)

When you're comparing two things, you use a coparative adjective like this:

She's taller than he is.

I'm more scared now than I was the first time.

If you want to describe the amount of difference between two things, you can use the phrase "quite a bit":

She's quite a bit taller than he is.

I'm quite a bit more scared now than I was the first time.

"Quite a bit" is something in between "a little" and "a lot".

### ( a flight) has a layover

When you travel somewhere by airplane, sometimes you can't fly directly to your destination. You have to take a flight to one place, then take another flight to your destination. The time that you spend waiting at the connecting airport is called a "layover".

People describe the location and length of layovers like this:

We had a 4-hour layover in London.
