We;re going Delta Business Elite and taking carry-ons; do we need to be there at (gulp) 4 a.m.?

I'm betting you'd sail through at 5 AM, maybe even 5:30. Weekday?

You are flying a domestic flight, SFO to JFK. Your flight from JFK to VCE is really not relevant for checkin at SFO, except for the need to show your passport.

Get there at 5:30 and you'll be early.

Yes, a weekday, though a Monday (June 16).

Got to DFW at 4:30 a.m. for 6:00 am. flight and found out AA desks didn't open until 4:45 a.m. Perhaps you could learn from my mistake and find out the opening times before you make your final plans.

Thanks All -- if I can get a human being on the phone or find it on the web I will get opening times.

(I did that for an early flight out of Venice a while back -- sat at the airport for an hour waiting for the desk to open for my very early flight back.)

Do not get there after 5am. But you should be fine at 445 or 5 at the latest.
