Moving Expense - Multiple Trips w/ flights

Struggling to find an answer on this one.

We qualify for moving expenses, I moved out first for work, my wife moved out shortly after while we looked for new home and sold old one. The question is about multiple trips out to the new house.

I am claiming simplified calculation for driving the two vehicles out (one way drive x 2) but curious how to claim the flights back or if I can. Would it just be incidentals or since it is a detailed I cannot combine flight and simplified?

For her, She drove her car out to sign for new home, then flew back to drive the Uhaul out. I do not see a good spot for it. Selling old home has an other costs, but new home just is the home costs. Would this also go under incidentals for moving costs above?

1 - The flight back to get second car
2 - My Wife's flight out to new house to sign paperwork before we sold old house and moved into new house.
