Four hours!! really??

Recommended Posts

So I'm due to travel on the Britannia 08th Dec to Barbados - do I really need to be at the airport four hours before. I have pre booked my seats so surely three hours would be acceptable? - Advice please - Can't wait for the sunshine!

Four hours is excessive! It's ridiculous to expect passengers to arrive that far in advance of their flight. I think three hours is the maximum they can expect and that's only for long-haul, if it's a short-haul flight it should be no more than 2 hours for check-in.

Flying direct to Barbados doesn't involve the USA so that shouldn't affect P & O passengers. When we went last March check in was 4 hours before the flight but we left it till 3 hours before & that left plenty of time for security & a look round the shops. Hanging round an airport for hours really made me appreciate cruising directly from Southampton.

The check in times before a flight is one of the reasons we look for cruises from UK ports.  Airports are a pain 

The waiting at airports certainly swung it for us along with the jet lag ,Much easier sailing from the UK ,Catch a coach little waiting no worries ,great start to the holiday...Davybe
