Excerpt A: Venice Marco Polo Airport to Venice
Excerpt B: Marco Polo Airport Transfer from Venice
In Excerpt A, the question is a little bit more specific (giving information about the preferred endpoints), while the second one is more general, and can potentially have One Answer To Rule Them All (tm) which will allow closing all similar ones as its duplicates.
The way I see it, there are a few options:
- Close B as a duplicate of A. This will surely frustrate the OP of B, since they have already seen A, and they are looking for more general info.
- Answer B, but also link to A. Not ideal, since we'll have two nearly-identical questions, with useful information likely to be split between the two.
- Merge A and B. Potentially good solution, but will require editing the question and also the answers -- requires too much cooperation from users which might or might not be willing to do this.
- Answer B with a canonical answer, and close B as a duplicate. Personally, I like this one best, although it will require some work from an enthusiast to dig up all information and write a good summary of all possibilities. A small bounty may be offered to sweeten the deal here.
What do you guys think? Perhaps there are other options that I haven't considered?
