Early check in

Hi i noticed that u can do evening check in for some early morning flights. We are staying over night at a hotel so can check in day before our flight. Does this mean that you check in all your luggage? and have to carry your over night items in your hand luggage?

Thanks

Mark

HI

early checkin usually means you can get boarding pass and seat assigments 24 hrs before flight

via internet then when you show up next morning for flight only have to drop bags off at designated drop off then proceed to gate and your flight

early checkin saves you the hazzle of having to wait in line to checkin and get boarding pass and check bags.

I think sawadeeka has probably got hold of the wrong end of the stick, perhaps they dont do this in the US? Its usually called something like 'twilight checkin' or similar and its only offered by some airlines. I have done it with American and Virgin. Thats what I assume you are asking about and not the normal 'checkin online 24 hours before' kind of thing?

You asked "Does this mean that you check in all your luggage? and have to carry your over night items in your hand luggage?" the answer is 'yes'.

We usually take some kind of 'sample' sized toothpastes and shampoos that we can either carry on or bin since a normal size of these cant go in your hand luggage as its above 100ml.Or you can use the hotels stuff of course.

Its great because IME there are next to no queues (or crowds in general) at the airport in the evening, and the next morning you can walk smugly past all the queues straight to security.

Yep joeintheuk has got it right - with bit luck your hotel should have shower gel shampoo etc.. I think you cud survive one night before your hols without your own shower gel etc...
