Since you have an early morning flight, I would get there at least an hour before your flight.

Definitely a couple of hours. I'd be freaking out if I only gave myself an hour before the flight.

Depends on the day of the week and the time.

If it's a weekday and your flight leaves at 7:00 a.m. I would be there around 5:30 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. at the latest. Weekday mornings are busy with business travelers so the lines for security could be long.

I always give myself 1.5 to 2 hours for a domestic flight and 2 hours for International.

Take care,
Mike
