Hi, I am flying to Hong Kong in the next a few days. the flight is scheduled to depart at 21:30. is it possible to check in A LOT earlier, like 13:00?
I am planning to go somewhere else after dropping my baggage in the airport, then return to the airport at around 19:00.



Please excuse my poor English.

You have not said where you are flying from but I assume it is LHR.

The self serve check in might be best and I paste below details from the VS website

Check in just got a whole lot easier, you can check in and pick your own seats before you leave home. From 24 hours to 2 hours before your flight is due to leave you can check in online, just follow these simple steps:

  1. Gather together all the travel documents of all the passengers you wish to check in.

  2. Click the "Check In" button below and follow all on screen instructions to check yourself in.

  3. Amend your automatic seat selection if you wish.

  4. Go to the airport, ensuring you leave yourself plenty of time to arrive no later than one hour prior to departure.

  5. Look for the DIY Check In Bag Drop desk to drop off any checked luggage you may have and pick up your boarding pass.

Currently this service is available in Virgin Atlantic departure airports in the UK, the USA, South Africa, Japan, Hong Kong and China.

My understanding is that the DIY Check In Bag Drop is open all day, so you should be able to drop your bags in at 13.00 but best phone VS to confirm.

Hope this helps!

I had a flight on VS from LHR-EWR that left at 2100. I checked in at 1130. In the US though you are only allowed to check in 4 hours prior to departure.

You can check in 24 hrs in advance on-line at the Virgin website.

sorry i forgot to mention i will be departing from LHR.

Check-in is not a problem, just a few mouse clicks. The only thing I am worrying is whether they will take my luggage at 13:00? I was doing similar when I fly with BA. I checked in on-line one day before my flight, but the check-in staff at fast bag drop refused to accept my luggage, untill 4 hours before take off...

Please excuse my poor English.
