Good morning everyone, happy Saturday. I need your help, well actually, my girlfriend needs your help. She is trying to figure out how she and her mom should fly home from Malta (small country in the Mediterranean Sea). They can either fly home on Monday, July 9 via Air Malta to Paris (CDG) and onto San Francisco (SFO) via XL France or they can fly home on Tuesday, July 10 via Air Malta to Manchester, England (MAN) and onto San Francisco (SFO) via Thomas Cook Airlines. Here are the various flight times and prices for Monday’s option:
MLA-CDG 06:25am – 09:20am ($201)
CDG-SFO 11:00am – 01:35pm ($532)
2 hr 55 min + 1 hr 40 min (layover) + 11 hr 35 min = 16 hr 10 min total ($733)
Here are the various flight times and prices for Tuesday’s option:
MLA-MAN 07:30am – 10:05am ($112)
MAN-SFO 11:55am – 02:50pm ($555)
3 hr 35 min + 1 hr 50 min (layover) + 10 hr 55 min = 16 hr 20 min total ($667)
Tuesday’s option is $66 cheaper and takes about the same amount of travel time. But I have never flown on Thomas Cook Airlines or XL France, so I can’t say that one airline is better than another. If you have any experience with either airline, please let me know which choice you think they should pick. Lastly, you can vote in my poll and we will see what the more popular option is.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great weekend everyone!
