[QUOTE=jo-jo;1043161]Thank you. Anything to make it easier at the airport.
The plane part is the worst part for my DH. He is so freaky that we will miss the plane.
Going down we have a 10:45 flight, but I’m sure we will be at the airport by 6 ish. (which is why I got netflix, I can’t read at airports, too much noise. If I’m sitting for 4 hrs, I’m watching movies) I said why don’t we take the earlier flight then. When then he would worry we wouldn’t make it and getting up at 5 is fine, getting up at 4 is pushing it.
Coming home, we have a 2:00 ish flight so we would get ME about 11, right??? My DH will be out there by 10:30 seeing if we could get on a early bus. But if we don’t have to worry about any lines at the airport, maybe we can take that 11 oclock bus.[/QUOTE]
Yes, your pick up time will be about 11 am for a 2 pm flight. It’s close to 3 hours before your flight.
I’m always worried about missing our plane so we get to the airport at home 3 hours before our flight. I’m a worrier so my DH plays along.
Coming home a couple of years ago we made it to our gate with minutes to spare. I’m not kidding, we sat down and they called our flight to board. We had maybe 3 stops after we were picked up and the airport/SWA ticket counter (bag check) was a mess. Then on top of that something was wrong with the luggage system and all the bags were just left in the ticketing area. After that we always changed our ME pick up time to allow 30 extra minutes but we’ve never needed it. This year we stuck to our assigned ME time and had more than enough time once we got to the airport.
