You can reach the airport later than normal, they wont give away your seat to someone else (most of the time) and you can use the online check in queue if you don't have status.

Just make sure you are aware that Emirates falsely advertise the opening of their OLCI.

Website says 24 hours before, but in reality it is on the day of departure or 10 hours before the flight.

I had the same frustrating experience with OLCI on AKL to SYD

hiya as soon as i booked my fight i go on skywards and book my seat
and have never had a seat changed from the one iv booked
iv tried to book 25 hours before a flight and had no go ,
but iv always been able to book 24hours before a flight never had trouble with online checkin being unavailable 24 hours before a flight, must just be lucky ????
then when i get to airport its bag dropped off then into the lounges !!

I haven't had any problems either.

You might not get the email exactly at T-24 depending on your email provider, but you can still go online to the Emirates website and check in regardless.

When you complete the process you will have the option to both view your boarding pass (and print it out) and email to an address that you input. If you are not in a position to print it out or have it printed out for you then you can simply approach a check in desk at the airport and they will print one out for you. Some aiports have desks dedicated to those that have already checked in on line who have bags to drop or who need to pick up a BP.
