While being able to check in for flights online has made life easier for airline passengers, it isn’t always as convenient as it could be. Airlines generally allow online check-ins 24–30 hours before take-off. If a passenger wants their pick of seats, they’ll have to remember to log on as soon check in opens—which could be at 3 a.m.—and need to be online to do so. (Unfortunately, many check-in systems don’t play nice with mobile web browsers.)
