Hong Kong in town Check in

Anyone familiar with Kowloon Station (HKG) in-town check in?

Does El Al allow checking in bags rather than at the airport?

Very basic. no different than other airlines. great service.
BTW if you know you're going to be using the Airport Express train in both directions it's cheaper to by a round trip ticket.
oh, and 3 hours is being very conservative.

Reminds me of the random Brooklyn locations they'd have to check luggage as well. Had to be 24 hours in advance though
