The website for the Minneapolis St Paul International Airport recommends that passengers arrive at least 2 hours early for domestic flights. This sits at odd with my understanding one should generally arrive only one hour early, and I suspect they may be providing an overly conservative recommendation.
My questions are:
- Is MSP really so busy as to necessitate an extra-early arrival?
- If I arrive 65 minutes early but miss my flight due to security/checkin delays, will I be considered responsible for arriving "late", or placed on the next available flight?
In case my specifics are relevant, I'm flying tomorrow morning at 6:50 from MSP to EWR, then connecting with a flight to BOS. Both flights were on United, purchased together. I will not be checking a bag.
I called the terminal but wasn't able to get a person on the line.
