Check in 6 hours before ANA flight at Tokyo Narita?
So, since I have to check out of my hostel at 11 am and have my flight in ANA First Class (dunno if premium cabin helps with this) at 6 pm. I’ve seen reviews where an OMAAT writer has arrived 6-7 hours early for their flight and gotten to a lounge right away; conversely, I have been unable to check in until the counter opens for a Hawaiian flight out of Seoul, and a United flight out of Shanghai. I was wondering if anyone has experience doing an early arrival at Narita
At NRT, you’ll be able to check in to your flight when you arrive 6 hours before your flight. NRT is one of ANA’s main airports and therefore, their staff is always around. You shouldnt have any problems.
With your Hawaiian flight out of Seoul, you couldnt check in early because Seoul isnt a hub for Hawaiian and therefore, they dont have any of their own staff there. Contracted staff wont begin check-in until they are required to do so, which is why you had a problem.
