Yes, you can do it with no problems.I did exactly this last year, arriving around 3:30pm for the 11:45pm Hong Kong flight in business class with checked baggage and was able to check it in and receive the boarding pass without issue.The staff probably thought I was in transit from somewhere, so also politely mentioned that I'd have time to go into the city if I wanted to. :)(I'd wanted to review all 3 Finnair lounges so arrived in ample time... I wouldn't normally get to the airport that early for an international flight, but early check-in allows you to check-out of your hotel during the day, finish up with any meetings or sightseeing during business hours and then wander to the airport to chill - and perhaps visit the sauna - before the flight.)Some AusBT Finnair flight and lounge reviews can be found here if you're interested too. Our pick of the lounges is the international Premium Lounge which you can access as a Oneworld Emerald flyer.
Thanks Chris. I have used the int premiun lounge and its very good. However I havnt tried the sauna......so thats a maybe too.

My wife and I checked in early (about 09:00) off an incoming flight from Iceland (with Icelandair) for the AY flight to HKG departing close to midnight.
