    Re: What is "redeye connection"?

    They are referring to diverting him to a connecting flight, in this case one that is a "redeye." A redeye flight is one that leaves late at night and arrives at its destination very early the next morning. "I caught the redeye from L.A. to New York and got in at six this morning." The term comes from the weary red eyes many of the passengers have from lack of sleep.
