So a 5am out of Dallas thru Atlanta looks to be the best option price wise (they are young and "poor" and we are all pooling our resources, miles/cash) to try to make this happen. I guess I thought there would be more options but it became very clear, very quickly what has to happen!
I'm from Houston and our return flights through Charlotte ALWAYS require us to pick up our luggage at IAH the following day. Big pain for us. My assumption is that there is not enough time for TSA to inspect. I wish you happy traveling for your family.
