Flying to Portugal next week and noticed that the website says check in 2 hours before the flight, I thought with all the 9/11 it was put up to 3 hours, I am sure it was 3 hours when I flew to Zante last year. Has it recently changed.
2 hours seems to be normal for European flights these days. Many of the charter type outfits certainly wouldn't have their desks open 3 hours before the flight IME. However the rest of security is still fairly tight so less waiting around - you'll be queuing from one security check to the next!
