Condor's Check-in 120 Min - Are They Serious

Hi,
few days ago I bought a ticket with Condor
(DE) for a spotting trip to MUC. Their reservation printout says that MINIMUM check-in time is 120 minutes even for intra-EU short-haul flights.
Has anyone flown with them before? How strictly is this (ridiculous) rule enforced? Checking-in for a 6.20 departure to PRG at 4 o'clock in the morning is just insane...  crazy

I think it's common as Condor is more a charter airline than everything else.
Never knew they fly to PRG?!?!?!?

I think they actually mean they START 2 hours in advance and just want everyone to line up then as late checkers in are a logistical hassle.
I am pretty sure you can actually get on board if you show up at least 45 minutes in advance, but please have confirmed somewhere when they usually CLOSE check in.



nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Confirmed by own experiences.

They just started about a month ago. Too bad you missed the promotion last week when they were selling thousands of tickets for 9 EUR one-way incl. taxes!

Having flown 4 times Munich-Mauritius and back with Condor we never had a problem arriving at about 1 hour prior to departure - except that we still had to wait in a queue.
