If you watch C carefully, it says the plane flys in and out of the same terminal.

ie. it talks about the same plane and not different planes..

As per the flow of the sentence, i think the answer should be E.

The correct answer is C. I picked E as well. The rational is that if the airline flies in and out of the same terminal, then he must be able to board on time... :shock:

I'd go with C precisely because the other options are open ended.
