Air NZ says on their website 90 mins for international flights unless USA in which case 2hrs before flight, but it also says check the mobile app.

 

Mobile app (on the specific booking) says 90min.

 

So... do I take it that 2hrs before flight is the cut-off to be safe?

 

Cheers

Last time I checked HNL was a state of the US so you answered your own question

Yes, but the website (generic) says 2h whereas the app (on the flight booking reference) says 90min.

 

So which one do you believe they're both USA.

It's 2 hours you seem to be making a mountain out of a mole hill here so be on the safe side checkin 2.5 hours early

i'd be 2 hrs in before flight. or even earlier. it's self service at airNZ counters, so could be busy if 2-3 flights at the same time.

I hate wasting time at airports by getting there early but not as much as I hate missing flights. 2.5h is overkill though why would I spend an extra hour in that awful place!

 

edit: it is a mountain not a mole hil if you turn up at 90 mins as directed by their own mobile app and they've closed the checkin.

It's only a half hour difference, better to be safe than sorry. I once nearly missed a flight out of Auckland because even though I was there within the time-frame Air NZ specified, the luggage conveyor belt had broken down and so they were making everyone line up and hand their luggage in through one small door and there was a massive line of people trying to do that.

What a nightmare. We'll have bags for Africa. Golf clubs, wife bringing the kitchen sink, 3 kids etc. I'm more used to travelling everywhere with a wheelie carry on even for international trips.

Jeez, just asking. Chill, brother.

 

What I am surprised by, but neither worried nor lost for words over is that AirNZ haven't checked their information - the website and app are saying different things.

Unless something has changed recently (unlikely), flights to USA required additional screening. You won't be able to access the gate area until security are present. The extra time is to get passengers to the gate earlier and through a second round of screening.

Check-in will close around 60 mins out for international services. If you're there 90 mins before hand there won't be any issues.

Secondary screening to the US only occurs if you're unlucky enough to get the dreaded SSSS on your boarding pass which is only a small percentage of the pax on each flight.

Not really, because he has been given differing information from 2 sources.
