As I'm flying at 06:20 from Mumbai, as a holder of the gold star alliance card, how many hours in advance I can be at the airport? Per example may I go at 12 and then go to the lounge.

Because in some airports the check-in starts 2-3 hrs in advance.

  • Are you referring to the airport itself, or to the part after check-in?

According to my (and my colleagues) experience, the security outside the airports won't let you in before 3 hours. My flight is always at 2:30 am, and I'm forced to book a hotel room to wait it out.
