Flight connections - KTM to Lukls and return

Hi,

trying to get some feedback from someone that might have done the same, or knows better to not do this:

- we want to arrive at Kathmandu, and fly out to Lukla next early morning, to allow plenty of time for hike past Phadking.

On return (and yes, we are aware that wether might play a lot here), we would like to hike from a 3-4 hour overnight place, in order to catch a noon(late morning/early afternoon) flight back to Kathmandu.

We have an extra buffer day to be used for delays, aside of two full days planned in Kathmandu prior to flight back home.

Is this schedule too tight? Are there enought flights leaving Lukla around that time? Obviously we plan to reserve tickets ahead of time.

Thanks

Edit Lukls= Lukla
