Add baggage to your existing booking on-line. It should be circa 20kg. Don’t go overweight as the charges can sometimes be quite steep.

Who are you flying with, where from and where to?

You can check in on-line 24hrs before your flight and then select your seats and then turn up at the airport, queue up, drop your baggage off and chill before you fly.

Make sure your hand luggage does not contain any fluids/liquids over 100ml and it must total no more than 1ltr between your fluids/liquids. No sharps like tweezers, nail file, scissors etc etc are allowed in your hand luggage.

Oh I assure you there is MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH worse

Dammam, comes to mind immediately, but also the last time I went through Cincinnati it was like a huge ghost town with no one in it.

Flying from stanstead to newark

Primiera air

Dont think they offer check in online

Wasnt sure about the bag thing tbh, didnt really get why you can add it online, is it just so you dont have to pay at the airport to speed up process

If you’re going into Manhattan once you land in Newark the train to Grand Central station is pretty good

They appear to offer online check in, whenever we have flown it isn't usually available until around 2-3 weeks before departure.

Edit - just checked our booking for this summer and it's 4 weeks.
