Air China JFK check in hours?

I'm flying CA 982 JFK-PEK on 11/2 which departs at 4:50pm, I'd like to arrive around noon in order to work from the Air France lounge before it closes to Priority Pass members at 1pm. Does anyone know if the CA check in counter will be open more than 4 hours prior to departure? If you already have a boarding pass and will not be checking luggage, do they require a passport check?

Slightly OT, I know about the smartphone restrictions on Chinese airlines, but has anyone had any issues with tablet usage in-flight?

TIA!

Yes they have an earlier JFK-PEK flight on the 777.

Yes, they will check your passport.

Tablets are fine.

Was check-in open when you got to JFK, or did you end up having to wait?

Bump. Anyone can comment on Air China check in hours? If we take AC 990 at 2:30AM - how early can we check in/drop off bags?
