Passengers are advised to arrive at least 90 minutes before their flight — especially for flights scheduled to depart before 8 a.m.

Officials also note that many airlines now close flight check-in, both online and at the ticket counter, 25-30 minutes prior to departure to ensure on-time departures.

This means that if you have not checked-in by that time you will not receive a boarding pass and rebooking can be difficult since flights are very full and available seats are at a premium.
