Online check in can sometimes save time but the difference in queue times between airport check in desks and baggage drop desks can be minimal - in my view the advantage of online check in is seat selection and time saved for those with hand luggage only.

It's not at all about saving time it's about saving errors.

Checkin online, if there is a problem wih your booking, you discover it 24 hours ahead of time, you are at home, you have a telephone, email and up to a day to fix it.

Discover it at the airport, maybe only 2 or 3 hours ahead of time, perhaps not enough time at all to fix the problem before the flight takes off.
