This question already has an answer here:
I find myself yearning to spend the last few minutes of my time in the country to be with the people I love.
Given that I'm already in the airport up to the point where non passengers are allowed, how much time should I give myself to go through the processes?
I understand that this might be a question that is very dependent on the airport, but I hope anyone can shed some light.
I notice that if the flight is 9pm, they request the passenger to be at the boarding gate on 8:40pm. How far can I push this?
It would be nice to discuss both cases with and without check in luggage. I'm also not looking for an exact answer like 1 hour. I'm looking for a comprehensive answer like "enough time to go past all checks to arrive 10 minutes before flight departure".
