Is the 8:45 AM AA departure from TCI as bad as afternoons?

Is the 8:45 a.m., American Airlines departure from TCI as bad/crowded as afternoons? If not, should I still arrive at the airport at least two hours ahead of time (6:45 AM)?

Also, any suggestions on HOW to return a rental car at 7:00 AM when all of the offices are still closed?

If you rent from Grace Bay Car Rental you can abandon that rental in the Airport parking lot. Be sure not to take the keys home as a souvenir. This is why most members of this forum like GBCR because your rental is patiently lingering in the Airport parking lot awaiting your arrival and you just abandon that vehicle in the Airport parking lot when you depart. Leaving the Airport in the morning is usually not the problem that occurs early afternoon, especially that dreaded Saturday. DR. JIM

Return of Grace Bay Rental car was a breeze. Leave the keys and parking ticket under the mat.

In July we had the 8:45 departure on a Tuesday. Very nice time and day. Not too many people there at all. Took us 2 minutes to clear security. It is night and day when I hear stories of Saturday afternoon.
