Hey guys, quick question. Jumpseating from Canada to US, in general how far ahead should I plan to be at airport to check in/list? I'm assuming this is done at the outside counter. Thanks

Iíve always been about 1:30. Depends on the station. Ive listed beforehand and at the ticket counter. Doesnít seem to make a difference. You will pay the departure tax out of Canada at that time..

You need to be checked in and have a boarding pass in your hand to pass through security in Canada unless you are actually working the flight, even if you're in uniform. Most of the time, they'll close the flights for check in at 60 min prior to departure, so you'll need to get checked in with a boarding pass (doesn't necessarily need a seat assignment if you're standby) prior to that or you won't be able to get to the gate.
