Next time, I would suggest that you plan on arriving at the time you select and not earlier.

Yea I definitely did not research that well. So, I am hoping to get that straight this time

So I should arrive at the time they give me? And not expect to board at that time? How do you get an earlier arrival time if the one they give you is later than you would like? Is it based on first come first served on the online check-in?

Thanks for your help!
