How long before our scheduled flight departure do we need to arrive at the airport? I don't want to cut it close.

I agree with Bobcat. We missed our flight once, mainly because they pushed up the departure time and didn't tell us and we were stuck in the long lines of security, but the weekends are always busy and the lines just to go through passport control can be very, very deep. This is even before going through security. We get to the airport around 11:30 AM for our 2:00 PM departure...just in case. There are places to sit upstairs and they also have a nasty but functional enclosed smoking room for any smokers.
