Concerns about domestic flight delays

Hi!

My plan is to catch a flight from Iguazu falls and arrive at Rio GIG airport in the same day as my International flight back home.

My international flight is scheduled to depart at 20.00 from Rio GIG on a saturday.

Option 1 is to catch GOL´s 06.00 flight from IGU and arrive 07.55 at Rio GIG

Option 2 is to catch TAM´s 13.24 flight and arrive 15.20 at Rio GIG

In my opinion option 2 is best suited only if there are no delays.

What do you think ?

Go for Option 2. There's no way of predicting a flight delay, but it's better to err on the side of caution.

Flight delays are not too common in my experience but I agree it's better to play it safe here and take Option 1.

Yes, I think so too. Still have to think twice before booking anything but Option 1 feels safer, and if we can put our luggage in a locker at the GIG airport then we´ll have some strolling around time before the 20.00 flight back.

Thanks for your help :)

I obviously meant Option 1.

Luggage storage (Guarda Volumes) at GIG, the international airport, is located on the curbside of each terminal and is open 24 hours (Malex do Brasil).
