Exactly what I did. I was half tempted to fly via BCN but I just know it was not a great idea with Vueling.
President of the Catalan low-cost airline Vueling, Javier Sánchez-Prieto admitted that the company failed to give explanations regarding the numerous flight delays and cancellations that passengers travelling from or to Barcelona El Prat airport had to suffer throughout the last few weeks. “We have been really focused on trying to solve it but I must admit we have failed”, he said this Wednesday in an interview with Catalan newspaper ‘Ara’. “Honestly and being self-critical we should have appeared ahead of time and communicated better”. Vueling cancelled more than 60 flights in the past four days and most of those flights which did operate suffered from delays, affecting nearly 78,000 passengers. A situation which was made worse by the repeated strikes of French air traffic controllers’, the last of which started last Monday.

Given that a transfer in Barcelona was an option if it had not been so tight I figure it doesn't matter much how long the journey takes, and a bus ride is not much different from a flight in that.
