    Will be taking the late night flight from LIM at 1250am on Feb 6. How much time do I need for check-in ( if I can't do it online) customs and security, will be flying Bus Cl if that makes any difference.

    A lot of flights leave around midnight and 1am from LIM. I showed up 2 hours before my 1am departure and was cutting it close.

    My friend and I got there about 2.5-3 hours before our 1am flight and that gave us about an hour to spend in the lounge before we needed to leave.

    What class of service were you sitting in? I'll be outbound on LAN in C.

    Just flew LIM-IAH last Monday. Arrived 2.5h before departure and it was just right. Checkin had no line, security line was not bad, and immigration line was horrendous. Beware they boarded the flight earlier than stated on the BP and there was no announcement from the lounge.

    The citrus juicer machine in the lounge looked intriguing. I suppose it's the S. American equivalent of the NRT beer machine.

    I was in C on CO.

    The bad part for me was check-in and immigration. Security was a breeze.

    Flew out of LIM in C on LAN, check-in was super fast, security was mostly fast (you don't really get to skip the line and they will randomly section off the line into two parts, so you can get set back/moved up depending on where you're standing) but immigration was slow. I'd give 30ish minutes to get through both.
