Booking flights! Best timing for kids?

Jump to last reply

I'm finally booking mileage tickets for my family's trip! This is our first experience with taking kids on a transatlantic flight (they will be 5, 7 and 9). It looks like our options will all be ATL-CDG-VCE. One option arrives in Venice at noon. The other option arrives in Venice at 3:00. Both are about 14 hours traveling (one just starts later than the other). Can anyone offer any opinion on whether it's better to arrive at lunch and have that first afternoon to work with, or is it better to arrive at 3:00 and only have a few hours to keep the kids occupied until dinner and bed? I don't really know just how tired they will be. I'd appreciate any thoughts on which to choose!
