I am flying with my family from Singapore on China Southern. Our flight is at 8am, but since we will be coming off the ferry at 10:15pm I thought the easiest thing to do would be to go straight to the airport and stay at the transit hotel. China Southern says they allow early check in up to 24 hours before, but there is an * that says "Some airlines have early check-in service that may close early. Please check with our customer service officers for more details." So, I have no idea if it is possible to check in at around 11pm at night. Anyone know how I can figure that out for China Southern?
My follow-up question is if we can check in, can I make a reservation at the transit hotel without an arrival flight? I saw on here someone suggested just making one up, but I want to know if anyone has tried it and if it isn't a problem.
Thanks in advance for your help.
