My husband and I are splitting our vacation between Bordeaux (first) and England (second), so we purchased a round trip from Los Angeles to London. We're now looking to get our tickets from London to Bordeaux, and discovered that there aren't many good flight options to Bordeaux from London, especially when you land at Heathrow as we are.
We'll arrive at Heathrow at 10:10 am and are considering these 3 flight options. We're concerned that the first 2 will not give us sufficient time, and the 3d option is quite inconvenient. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Option 1 – 11:50 am out of Heathrow with a short stop in Paris. This is the best option but is 1 hour and 40 minutes enough to go through immigration and then go to another terminal?
Option 2 – 1:50 pm out of Gatwick. Same concern about having enough time for everything, including transfer from Heathrow to Gatwick.
Option 3 – 6:10 pm out of Gatwick. This one is quite inconvenient as we'll have an 8 hour gap between arriving and departing and will only get to Bordeaux at 8:50 pm.
