These days it is so important to be early in case of any delays at the counter.With all the internet bookings now,any excuse seems to be fine for the airlines to charge extra if you are late,even by 2 minutes!
No, I prefer to arrive on time. Early means too long sitting in the uncomfortable chairs in the waiting area, being bombarded by ghastly muzack and announcements whilst fending off other travellers running their suitcases over my toes....
I've never been late to an airport.
Yes because there is always some unplanned challenge to deal with and that way you are not put under the pump. Also I love watching people so it doesn't phase me to be sitting there and watching the world go by until my flight is called.
I always arrive early. Don't like being on time or late because you never know what the airlines are likely to do, particularly if you travel with a cheaper airline who often over-book seats on planes (so I noticed on TV shows concerning airlines). I always take a book or purchase several magazines to read.
I always like to arrive early, no matter what for. It takes the stress out of the situation. I would rather be at the airport an hour early calmly sipping a coffee of watching planes land and take off than fretting in a taxi in heavy traffic.
