In my mind, the ideal layover time for a domestic itinerary is about 90 minutes but recently it seems such itineraries are harder to find.
I prefer 45-ish minute layovers instead of 90+ and Skyclub visits. They're not peaceful havens these days, plus I'd rather get to my destination that much sooner.
