Reply To: Rule disallowing passengers to check-in more than 3 hour before a flight?

Back to Forum


First time I flew out of LHR T5, which was in June 2008, I arrived just over 4 hours before the flight and was told that only passengers travelling in Premium cabins (Business and First, presumably therefore OW Emerald and Sapphire as it is now) could check-in more than 4 hours before the flight (I was in business so there was no problem). Maybe it has changed now.

Nope. Junior Offspring was denied check-in when arriving about four hours early just a month or two ago (she is in boarding school, and the school make sure the overseas students get to the airport with PLENTY of time!!)
