Migrating data from MacBook Air to pro question

I just got the 13 inch MacBook pro and I'm migrating about 250 GB of data from my old MacBook air. I had it running for about ten hours and it says there are 20 more hours to go. I don't *really* need my laptop until Monday morning, but if possible I'd like to speed up the process. Would it be worthwhile (would I save a lot of time) to get a firebolt-USB adapter and connect the two laptops over thunderbolt? If I do that will I need to restart the whole process or will it be able to switch from wireless transfer without too much trouble?

I don't think you'll be able to switch over from wireless to wired without starting over. How long is impossible to estimate, it all depends on too many factors, not only the amount of data transferred.
