Ryanair – Checked in online, no hold luggage – When do I show up?
Its East Midlands 6am in the morning, I think we wont have any congestion to deal with
Err, bad mistake, I used to get there on Monday @6am (for 7:00am flight) and the security queues were sometimes massive. I had to pay to fasttrack a couple of times or I’d miss my flight. Dunno what it’s like midweek, but 6:00AM isn’t quiet on a Monday.Posted 4 years agostumpy01Member

Thanks guys. Its East Midlands 6am in the morning, I think we wont have any congestion to deal with!
Erm. You might be OK, but I wouldn’t bank on it. For 4 months I used to fly from Stansted to Luebeck on Ryanair; 6:25am every Monday morning and the security queues were pretty bad. I used to get there in plenty of time to go and have breakfast, sit and read the paper etc.
The early flights are normally full of people going over to Europe for work, wanting to get as near to a full day at work in as possible.Posted 4 years agojfletchMember
Airports are busy early doors for lots of reasons.
Busisness people like to travel then to get a full day’s work at their destination. Airlines like early flights so they can get an extra back and forth into the scedule. Holdiay makers like early mornings as they are often cheaped and they get longer away for the same number of nights.
But I’d bet the airport has less staff on to cope as it’s out of normal working hours.
Traffic will be quiet thoughPosted 4 years agopoolmanMember
I fly a fair bit & only once got caught out at Gatwick where the security queue took c 1 hour. Usually its 15 mins but sadly you can’t bank on it.
I leave 2 hours, sometimes you are held at security to show contents of bag etc. Just get a paper & have a coffee in the spare time.Posted 4 years agoEdukatorMember
My neighbour’s MIL thought not enough would be enough, he had to put up with her for another day and buy another ticket.
It depends on the airport, security checks can take forever in big airports but small ones are usually fast. I leave 2h for big airports and 1h30 in small ones.Posted 4 years ago
