MH check in at PVG

Hi all,

We are flying PVG-KUL in a few week's time on MH 389 (dep. 16:05).

We are both BA Golds (thus OneWorld Emerald) and are travelling in business class.

Can anyone advise from recent personal experience the earliest time we can check in at PVG ?

Assume it is no earlier than about 13:00 ?

Thanks for your insight

Do go early as immigration queues are often long... but the shared lounge at PVG isnít great and isnít worth spending excessive time at.

Agree the lounge (MH use the No.77 lounge for their biz passengers) is nothing special. However as noted by carrotjuice, donít leave it too tight - I arrived 90 minutes before that flight last Thursday and barely made it through in time - both theForeigner immigration and the subsequent security scanning queues were incredibly slow moving. Itís odd - they donít make it very easy getting in OR out of the country!

Usually 2 hours to 2.5 hours before at PVG. No need to get there earlier than 2 hours before. Minimizing time spent at airports in China should be the goal.
