Many people have relaxed their rules about their arrival times at airports,
particularly if they travel frequently. Even if you’re departing
from a smaller airport, you need to allow yourself plenty of time to find
JFK parking, and make it to your gate before the plane’s doors close. Take a
look at these common myths about airport arrival times.
Myth: You Can Jump the Security Line if You’re Running Late
There is always a traveler who thinks that because he had trouble finding
parking at JFK, and is now in danger of missing his flight, he can inconvenience everyone
else. In reality airport security is very strict about requiring travelers
to remain in line during the security check, and it’s extremely
unlikely that an airport employee will allow you to skip ahead in line.
Myth: The Flight Won’t Leave Without You Once Your Bag is Checked
There are very rare circumstances in which a plane will delay departure
due to a checked bag for a missing passenger. On international flights,
it’s highly likely that your checked back will be pulled from the
plane and the plane will depart without you on it. On domestic flights,
the plane may leave while still carrying your bag, even if you aren’t on board.
Myth: Airplane Doors Don’t Close Until Departure
When you receive the boarding pass for your flight, you will see your
flight’s boarding time, departure time, and the time at which the
plane’s doors will be closed. Depending on the airport and the flight,
the doors may close between fifteen and thirty minutes before departure.
Once the plane’s doors are closed, airport employees are not allowed
to let you on the plane.
