Need to get to Malta from Madrid in May. Before booking the Spain portion of my itinerary, I misread Air Malta's schedule. Yikes! Didn't realize flights go through Frankfurt (6-hr layovers), takes 9-11 hrs depending on departure time, arrives almost 10pm. Vueling takes 8 hrs thru Rome (5 hr layover), arrives Malta 9pm. I'm a seasoned solo independent travel & TA fan, very fit for 65+, but hoping to find a more direct way to get there (earlier).
Last resort, thought about going to Sicily first since that would have been my next stop after Malta. But I'm already too deep into my search for Malta accommodations to be changing dates. I'm stressing out. Please help!Edited: 15 February 2011, 21:48
