LX business check-in cutoff in TLV

On their website LX list 2hrs as check-in cutoff time at TLV. Does anyone have experience with this?

I do have bags to check, but really don't want to arrive so early. I will have completed internet check-in and have a boarding pass.

My experience in TLV (LH, LX and OS): make web check in, arrive to airport 1,5-2 hrs before and usually there is plenty of time. Of course there might be some exceptions, once they closed down new terminal and all check-in procedures were made from old one and I almost missed my OS flight...

I asked at check-in, LX closes 50 min before departure.

I usually arrive 1.5 hours before the flight. No issues.

The official recommendation for TLV is to arrive 3 hours before your flight.
If your no carrying an Israeli passport, security might take a bit longer. Also, the past week has been the busiest ever in terms of # of passengers traveling through TLV, and that may cause further delays.

That said, I flew out of there today with SN, and everything went pretty smooth and fast.

If you still have doubts, I have a local Israeli number and don't mind giving them a call (if you can find the number) and ask them directly about it.
