I have a table with the following layout:
SQL> desc fltdestinations;
 Name                                      Null?    Type
 ----------------------------------------- -------- ------------------
 FLTDESTID                                 NOT NULL NUMBER(10)
 FLTID                                     NOT NULL NUMBER(10)
 STOP                                      NOT NULL NUMBER(10)
 AIRPORTCODE                               NOT NULL VARCHAR2(4)
 ARRIVALTIME                                        DATE
 DEPARTURETIME                                      DATE
 RON                                       NOT NULL VARCHAR2(1)
 NUMNIGHTS                                          NUMBER(2)

With records like:
FLTDESTID,FLTID,STOP,AIRPORTCODE,ARRIVALTIME,DEPARTURETIME,RON,NUMNIGHTS
101,1,1,Cheyenne,,9:00am,N,0
102,1,2,Casper,10:00am,11:00am,N,0
103,1,3,SF,3:00pm,8:00am,Y,1
104,1,4,Cheyenne,12:00 pm,,N,0

I would like to create a Crystal Reports report that will look like:
Flight: 1
From - To                 Departure Time   Arrival time   RON  NumNights
Cheyenne - Casper    9:00 am             10:00 am       N       0
Casper - SF               11:00 am            3:00 pm        Y       1
SF - Cheyenne           8:00 am             12:00 PM       N       0

The starting city should not have an arrival time and the last city cannot have a departure time.  I need to be able to remove and add cities at anytime in any location of the flight, stop is how the order of cities is decided.

How do I create the report?

An interesting question.

>> I need to be able to remove and add cities at anytime in any location of the flight,
Why are you asking this in the Crystal Reports forum?  You problem is database related not reporting related.

What is your problem building the report?

SELECT D.fltid, D.stop, D.airportcode, D.departuretime, D.ron, D.numnights,
             A.airportcode, A.arrivaltime
FROM fltdestinations D LEFT OUTER JOIN fltdestinations A ON
D.fltid  = A.fltid AND D.stop + 1 = A.stop
GROUP BY D.fltid
ORDER BY D.stop

That should get you the records

In the report
Create a group - FLTID
Sort by - STOP

Add the fields to the detail section

Crystal Reports is read only.  You need some other interface to change the underlying data.

My solution was:

CREATE OR REPLACE VIEW FLIGHTRAC.REQUESTSLEGS
(REQID, DEPARTURECITY, DEPARTURESTATE, ARRIVALCITY, ARRIVALSTATE,
 DEPTIME, ARRIVALTIME, DEPTIMEZONE, PAXPU, PAXDO,
 ARTIMEZONE, RON, NUMNIGHTS)
AS
SELECT d.REQID,d.DESCITY as departurecity,d.STATE_ABBREV as departurestate,a.descity as arrivalcity,a.STATE_ABBREV as arrivalstate, d.desdeptime as deptime,a.desarvtime as arrivaltime,d.TIMEZONEID as deptimezone,d.NUMPUPASSENGERS as paxpu,a.NUMDOPASSENGERS as paxdo,a.TIMEZONEID as artimezone,a.ron,a.NUMNIGHTS
FROM reqdestinations D, reqdestinations A
where D.reqid  = A.reqid
AND D.desid + 1 = A.desid
ORDER BY d.DESID;
