I'd think VCE/MXP/FCO are easier and closer to FLR than ZRH..
SN only flies to FLR seasonally and it was very difficult to find SN availability from YYZ-BRU anyway. I'd rather avoid UA in general. I did debate flying into FCO or MXP but an LX flight from ZRH-FLR is only around $110 CDN, so it just seemed like the best option.

I was also just under the MPM to CNX, so adding that extra bit of routing would have invalidated the itinerary. Oh well, I'm pretty happy with it overall.

Thanks, I'll look into the train. I do generally prefer train travel to air travel, depending on the timing.

From my research it seemed that LX flies into FLR but TK only flies into PSA, which are not considered co-terminals, so it wasn't possible to put together a route without backtracking.
