    We are flying out of DFW (Dallas) with a connecting flight in Denver to Puerto Vallarta. Should we treat this like it is an international flight and arrive 2+ hours ahead of time? Our flight departs from DFW to Denver at 6:45 AM so the later we have to wake up the better. If we need to be there at 4:45am we will, but obviously would rather sleep in a little longer.

    We have tried calling the airline (Frontier) a few times today but have not been able to reach anyone. We will try again tomorrow and if we don't hear anything we will just go on the safe side and arrive early.

      I don't think 2 hours is necessary since you are starting off with a domestic flight. Have fun in PV and at the Westin, we just stayed there last weekend. I loved it!

        Yes, your Dallas to Denver flight is a domestic flight. No need to get there that early.

        i think you consider it a domestic flight. if you have airline questions, abbie (dougsgirl) is our resident expert - she works for an airline.

        if you are connecting to an intl flight on the same carrier, we advise you check in 2 hrs prior due to needing the extra time to enter your passprt info, etc. if you have already called ahead of time to do that, then you could give yourself less time. the main thing to remember about any check in advisory is that the amount of time is based on how long the airline thinks it will take you to get thru security, not necessarily the amount of time you will need to actually check in.

        basically, if you are able to do web check-in, and if you've already called to get your passport info entered, just show up long enough to get your bags checked and wait in security.
