QF 4 AKL-SYD check in time

Do a lot of trans-Tasman flying but havent taken this MISERABLY early 630am departure yet so trying to plan for every minute as sleep as possible next week. Flying J.

It appears the same 90 minute cutoff rule applies to check in for this sector but does that also mean bag-drop? Ideally I can get to the airport at 5am not 430am for a 630am in J. Lines in AKL are never bad this early. If I check in online can I still bag drop at the 60 minute mark?

06:30 isnít THAT early. You can always change to a later flight - there are lots of them.

Nah-not with lie-flats. The only other option that day is the LAN 787 which is miserable, and its only 1 hour later.

I though it was 60minutes for bag drop closure at AKL, provided you had checked in online.

One option is to try calling the Auckland lounge and asking, their phone number should be (or at least it was when last published online):
+64 9 256 6380 (It's a New Zealand landline if calling from outside NZ)
Obviously need to try during lounge hours 4:30am to 8pm NZ time.

I tried this and the women was less than helpful and came back telling me check in closes at 4am which obviously isnt true.
