Flying Tips & TricksHow do I find my flight number?
  • The number is in your itinerary, which will be emailed to you when you've completed your booking. If you're not too sure what to look for, browse the document for a code consisting of numerals and letters. The first couple of letters and single figure are the IATA airline code, which is the name of your airline. This part is followed by one, two, three or four digits — your flight number.
How early can you check bags for a flight?
  • Airlines can have varying requirements for physical check-in and luggage drop times. However, as a general rule of thumb, you should be at the airport about three hours prior to departure for an international flight. If you're traveling on a domestic flight, the recommended time is two hours prior to departure. Our top tip? Don't be too late. International flights tend to close bag drop an hour before departure. With domestic flights, 45 minutes before is standard.
