Hello, I am travelling to Bali this week and meetings with colleagues in the lounge beforehand and wondered if I am able to check in earlier than 3 hours before departure? The check in desks should be open about 4 hours before the Bali departure due to the flight to Ho Chi Minh departing an hour earlier than the Bali flight but are passengers able to take advantage this? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

It is whatever they say it is. Usually 3 hours. I have tried the same with other airlines such as EK in Paris and am told to come back. It is to do with backend work to make things happen such as bags on the correct flight, flight lists etc.

I've had mixed luck with this, one time I was able to check in four hours earlier due to another flight leaving before the DPS one, another time I wasn't.

Though SYD offers all-day check-in for QF passengers, JetStar strictly limits check-in to the normal 3 hours. The exception is if you are travelling hand luggage only, in which case the check-in staff will usually, but not always, over-ride the computer and let you in.
