Best option from Asti to London

1. Asti to Milano Centrale then taxi to Linate. Leaving Asti at about 0630 then arrive at Milano Centrale about 0900 then taxi to Linate for a 1130 flight

2.Train from Asti 0630 to Milano Centrale then bus to MXP for a 1235 Flight.

I think the first option. Am I correct?

There is a direct train from Asti to Milano Centrale at 0643 arriving 0835. There are buses from Centrale to both airports leaving every 20 minutes or so, Malpensa takes about an hour, Linate should be shorter, but better to check the schedules. Or you could take a taxi.

There are so many flights from Milan to London by different airlines that it is impossible to tell why you have singled out these two.

But Linate by taxi is certainly going to be around 20 minutes faster (though more expensive) than Malpensa by train, and 30 or 40 faster than by bus. Bus to Malpensa is only the best way if you are using one of EasyJet's flights from T2.

The fastest and cheapest way to London from Asti is probably using the Ryanair flight from Turin to London Stansted, unless you have a lot of baggage as Ryanair's allowances are notoriously stingy.

The price difference on British Air is significant. Linate being the less expensive. It sounds like all around for us is the better option. We will be taking the 0643 train to Centrale and there is an 1130 flight Linate to London. I have to take into consideration all aspects of the trip. Luggage charges, time of flight etc. Do you agree?

If your question is simply which is the better of two British Airways flights from Milan and the Linate one is significantly cheaper, then evidently the Linate one is better as there's little else to choose between them and you'd have to leave Asti at the same time to get either of them.
