it might be 30 for shutdown. Maybe the 45 was when i missed my chicago flight.Gizmo said:Dude, 60 minutes is no problem for domestic.
Edit: bass invader has a good point, but isn't it 30 minutes prior for shut down? I flew to Montreal a few weeks ago, and literally got there 40 minutes and got on ok.
That's unusual. You must have gotten lucky. Even with only carry on they are supposed to deny you entry after the cutoff.Vise said:I once showed up about 25mins before a flight to Montreal (flying for business) and I basically walked right on the plane and we took off. As long as you're not checking baggage it shouldn't be an issue if you show up 45-60mins in advance.
Wrong. For domestic flights you can check in any time 30 minutes before flight before you get cut off.Bass-Invader said:You can show up later, but if there is a delay, you only have 15 minutes to make it to the checkin counter before you are denied the flight.
Wrong again. If the flight is full, they can give your ticket away if you get there less than 30 minutes before departure. If the flight is not full, the airline will generally try to get you on the flight. As long as you can get to the gate prior to departure time, they'll generally help you out.Bass-Invader said:That's unusual. You must have gotten lucky.
