Check-in times with Lot

How far in advance do you have to check in with Lot for both national and transatlantic flights. Their website does not really specify to clearly. They say a min of 1 hour - but would this be correct for a transatlantic flight?

The website says that check-in for Canada, USA and other long haul destinations opens 3 hours and closes 1 hour before departure.

Domestic, Europe, Middle East and North Africa - check in opens minimum 2 hours and closes 30 minutes before departure. For flights from Warsaw operated specifically by LOT you can check in as early as 23 hours before departure, both online and at the airport - LOT has a row of check-in desks serving all these destinations.

From my experience, it's best to check-in 1.5 hours before departure on domestic and intra- European flights. Note that queues before security check can currently be long due to the closure of the 2nd airport. On long- haul flights you should check- in at least 2 hours before your flight leaves.

Hey Travellingbug23:-) As mentioned, the gate usually closes about an hour prior for a trans.. 3 hours ahead is pretty standard internationally;-) I like to play it safe.. better early than late anyway since I like to check out DF and have a glass of wine or 2 without rushing/stressing;-) Better safe than sorry.. Enjoy!

You have 30 mins of free internet at the airport in Warsaw so another thing to help kill the time ;)
