Check-In Requirements for WLG-SYD?

Unfortunately, the only feasible flight leaves at the ungodly hour of 6:40 a.m. It is not possible to check in online (why not?), and NZ tells me it is necessary to show up at 5:00 a.m. despite my confirmed reservation or I'll lose my seat, or even my booking. Is that really true? Does *G count for anything?

No online check in for international flights is standard for NZ as they want to verfy the visa requirements.
Do not forget you will need to pay for the $25 Departure Fee at the Kiwi Post Shop if you use the Kiosk.

Online Check-in would be point-less when the check-in process already takes 45seconds with the self-check machines.
