What is the point of checking in online for a flight?
The purpose of checking in online, besides saving you time and sparing you the nuisance of standing in line at the airport, is that it gives the airline greater certainty that you actually intend to use the seat you have reserved, and the airline thus won’t be left with unsold seats on the flight.
Is it better to check in online or at the airport?
Online check-in is always better, if nothing else from a convenience standpoint. If you check-in online you can typically still pick some pretty decent seats. If you check-in at the airport counter, you are stuck with whatever seats your fellow passengers didn’t want.
