Default Post cruise flight from LAX

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.

Thanks!!

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.

That is the respose I was getting at. You know what the score for LAX is. I can guess that is the prime day for all of the Disney vacationers to go home...Heh, but I despise Disney.

I'll likely pick a flight between 1-2pm......

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.
