What is the baggage drop deadline at the check-in counter for Eva Air at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) for international flights (to SFO if that matters)?

Evaair.com - managing your trip says:

Counters are opened gradually from 04:15, please check your check-in island at the airport. All flights are closed punctually 60 minutes before flight departure.

However I don't know whether this 60-minute deadline also apply to the baggage drop or the baggage drop deadline is before 60 minutes.

On the same page as the URL listed above, I see that the "In-Town Check-in" does have a difference between the non-baggage check-in deadline (2 hours before flight departure) and the baggage check-in deadline (3 hours before flight departure):

Check-in for all EVA/UNI flights departed from Taoyuan International Airport and closed punctually 2 hours before flight departure that day. Baggage check-in will be closed 3 hours before flight departure. Flights departed to Canada are not acceptable in A1 station.

but I don't know about the check-in at the airport.

The confirmation email I received when purchasing the flight ticket doesn't contain the information.

    Sure, but if no one responds — and no one has, yet -- asking might generate useful info. EVA Air's contact page is here: evaair.com/en-us/contact-us-and-help/contact-us Sep 30, 2019 at 3:42
  • @MarkMayoSupportsMonica I called the Eva Air customer service: my interlocutor apparently couldn't understand me. I called a second time but they wouldn't pick up the phone. And at the airport I forgot to ask the question when dropping my baggages. it's really annoying that many airlines do not clearly and spontaneously specify deadlines, but I think it is in their habits not to respect their passengers' time ("come three hours early and wait at the airport!")

    Usually when there are no further details, the airport check-in and baggage drop deadlines are the same.

Seems it should be 2-3 hours before flight:

From Taoyuan Airport - Departure Procedures:

Please go the check-in counter of your airline two to three hours before your flight departure time to complete check-in procedures.

From Star Flyer - Airport Check-In Counter (Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport):

Be sure to complete check-in at least 40 minutes prior to departure time.

However airports are very good at not giving clear deadlines to things apart from flight departure etc. Of course.
