Flying out to NY for Thanksgiving....

And I'm checking a bag so all I have to board with is my son, the diaper bag and his stroller will be stowed. With the new security measures in place and wanting to get there early so I can board early and get settled before everyone else starts boarding, what time should I aim to be to the airport by? Im checking in and paying for my luggage online, and my flight is scheduled for 7pm.

  • With what I have been hearing i would get there no less than 3 hours before your flight. there has been some delays with the security screenings and pat downs etc.

  • 5 is what I was thinking since they're doing those pat downs. And of course there's getting the gate that's at the other end of the airport lol.
