No yu can't. There is no way to drop it off eariler than the drop opens. Looks like you'll just have to deal with the line. At least at 4:00am everybody will b asleep?
I would have liked to be asleep longer before going to the airport lol
You only need to be there before the check in closes 30 minutes prior to the flight not 2 hours before. If you get to the airport at 5am that will be plenty of time. Trust me I have flown that route about 100 times.
"You only need to be there before the check in closes 30 minutes prior to the flight not 2 hours before." - If you're planning to cut it fine remember that you could always hit a traffic problem such as an accident (even at 4.00am) on the journey from home, Falkirk, to the airport which could mean you miss the flight.
What's more important - an extra 30 minutes in bed or a stress free trip to the airport with contingency to deal with problems if they arise.
Two hours is excessive for a short-haul flight. Some airports aren't even open at 4 am. But planning to get to the airport 30 minutes before the flight (which is, presumably, when bag drop CLOSES) would be crazy.
I normally aim for 90 minutes at smaller airports - or slightly less if my journey starts somewhere close to the airport (e.g., when staying at a nearby hotel before an early flight)
Guys I didn't say get there 30 minutes before I said that was a minimum and to get there by 5am was fine so an hour before
I am only twenty mins home to parked at the airport .
Leaving late is not an option as I have an even greater issue . My wife is a stress head and will have me standing in the queue to drop of our suitcases at 3:00am :)
