Hey,
I’m trying to decide on a return flight from Aruba. Would it make sense to have a 8am flight with one stop or an 11am flight with two stops? 8am flight would only be about 7 hours of traveling. The 11am flights would be 10 hours

8am flight. Your travel day would basically be 6am-3/4pm vs 9am-9/10pm if you factor in 2 hours pre flight. Also depends on if you’re getting dinner/drinks the night before or want a local breakfast/coffee before you leave.

What are you worried about with the 8am? How early you need to get to the airport?

Seems like a worthwhile tradeoff for fewer stops and reduced transit time

E1 It’s really dependent on airport. Even in the current staff shortages, I wouldn’t do anything close to 3 hours for the vast majority of airports.

8am for sure. Landing at 3pm vs 9pm gives you half a day to recover and settle back in. Also with so many flight issues lately only 2 flights reduces chance of an issue.

Having an earlier flight also gives you a buffer in case of any delays. The earlier in the day you fly out, the less likely you are to be delayed. But even if you are, there’s a higher likelihood they can get you on a later flight than if you flew out in the afternoon, given there’s more flights available.

- Amex also has $200 FHR/Hotel Collection annual credit for one of the hotels I'm considering
- Could also transfer points to Hyatt, but not as good hotel options where I'm headed
