Flight at 11:15 am, Should I take the 1830 ferry from previous night?
I have an international flight in the morning at 11:15. Would taking the 1830 ferry from the previous night be the best option to catch the early flight? I'm afraid that the 0810 ferry on the morning of will be too much of a time constraint.
Thank you
