How early do I REALLY need to get to the airport ticket counter before my flight? 
American, Delta, and United all recommend 90 minutes prior to departure, especially if you are checking baggage.  In addition, 30 minutes prior to departure – all check in activity at the ticket counter is cut off.  American computers will automatically lock out check-in and the customer will be scheduled for a later departure (depending on the fare purchased) whether or not the flight has been boarded or is still at the gate. 

Allegiant Air recommends passengers get to the airport two hours prior to departure.  The ticket counter will close 30 minutes prior to departure time of the aircraft.  

Keep in mind, you may want to get to the airport even earlier if it is around a holiday.  The Friday prior to Thanksgiving and the Sunday after Thanksgiving are two of the busiest travel days of the year at the Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport.  Check the airport’s news feed on the right hand side of the homepage to see if there are any travel advisories in the hours before your flight.  If traffic is expected to be heavy and or disrupted in any it will be posted here.

If you are flying internationally, airlines advise passengers to arrive at the airport at least two hours in advance of the flight departure.

How early do I need to be at the gate before my flight?
