    Hello, can you confirm po if I got this right. After booking my flight, I could check-in (no extra baggage) within 5-7 days before my flight and, once I get the screenshot of my boarding pass I can directly go to my boarding gate and present said pass? How about the tag? Do I still need it printed? Thank you.

    Hi! Is it still 7 days prior the flight date? I tried doing the online check-in today for my Oct 13 flight, but there was a prompt message saying that online check-in is available 48 hours before the flight.
