4 hours to Bali then 23 hours to DFW.

20 hours to PPT and then 11 to DFW.

In the big picture it's not that much difference.

Thanks for all the information everyone, but we've actually decided to trash the entire trip to Thailand and wherever else we might have gone (It definitely wouldn't have been anywhere in the South Pacific, as we cannot afford those prices for Bora Bora or Moorea). The situation just didn't work out the way we had anticipated it to, so we won't even be going to Thailand at this point. The costs continued to escalate and for those costs, there are many other places in the world that I would put before Thailand.
