Hi,

I have one basic question. As per my understanding leg and segment are same

If you have journey from source to destination consist of multiple hops then that is what is called leg and I think that is what is segment too.

Please correct me if I am wrong

Thanks,
Shabbir

From southwest.com:
"A flight segment is defined as a takeoff and a landing."

It pays to research and get an understanding for any domain you work in.

As per example given at http://gennick.com/?q=flight

Plane QF1 that flies from A to B, and then on to Z.

Plane QF2 that flies from A to Z directly, and then stops.

Plane QF3 that flies from D to E to F, and finally to Z.

Each hop from one point to another is called a "leg". For example, flight QF1 consists of two legs: from A to B, and from B to Z. Flight QF2 consists of a single leg, whereas Flight QF3 consists of three legs

Thanks,
Shabbir
