I will be purchasing my post-cruise flight home soon and I want to know how early is too early to book a flight. I have the chance to fly out at 11:20am and be home in time to eat dinner. I am not so sure that is a wise idea, but I just want to bounce it off you kind folk to see if any of you have had a similar experience with early flights.
I can take a choice of four or five flights out after 1pm, but each flight gets me home between 5-10pm at night. I'd rather get home earlier than later.

I live in Los Angeles....and I'd choose something in the afternoon. The airport can get quite busy on a Dunday [which is when I suspect you're leaving the Splendor]--and the chance of missing an earlier flight can be great.
You could probably make it if you are one of the first people off of the ship, but it is risky. So I would suggest taking one of the later flights.
