When is the Best Time to Fly?

We are headed to Florida tonight, and my nerves have reached an all time high. Not just because it’s the longest flight Will has ever taken, but because we depart Chicago at 8:30 p.m, and arrive in Florida at 12:30 a.m. That’s right, almost 1:00 in the morning!!

It get’s better…

Our return flight, leaves at 5:30 a.m. That’s a 3:30 a.m wake-up call for Will! I’m not sure which is worse?

It’s hard to pick a good flight time for a baby, and the airlines make it virtually impossible to change your flight (trust me, we tried!). Lesson learned: Always book with Southwest.

When do you think is the best and the worst time to fly with a baby?

P.S. Can’t wait for vacation, but dreading the hectic travel schedule!
