    Hiya ocow.

    I have to get to Newcastle NSW tomorrow, as early as possible, and I live in Radelaide. No luggage.

    Theres a 6am flight from Adelaide that gets to Sydney at 8:25 (Virgin I think)

    Then there is a 8:40 flight from Sydney to Newcastle (Rex, I'm pretty sure)


    Two separate tickets I assume.

    Will it work? or do I need to be at the second flight (rex ) an hour or so before boarding time ?


    or, as a long shot are there any OCAU'ers going from the Sydney airport area to the Newcastle area tomorrow morning :p

    As stated in the Rex conditions of carriage, all counters will stop accepting customers for check-in

    30 minutes prior to scheduled departure time at Adelaide, Melbourne & Sydney airports

    no idea.

    I'll just catch the train up. Its not that much longer, and gets me closer to where I need to be... and $150 cheaper!

    Thanks for the thread move... Didn't realise there was a holidays/travel forum!

    Why not just hire a car? Trains are a nightmare on the weekends... Track work and what-not... By the time you factor in the exorbitant charges for shitty-rail access to the airport stations, it's probably not much more expensive, and certainly cheaper than a plane!

    Probably nicer too and you'll get a view you might not have experienced before.

    http://www.rex.com.au/FlightInfo/check_in.aspx

    just grabbed it from there, might be some other stuff on there worth a read too.


    ah, just noticed you would have made the trip already. How'd you end up doing it?

    Try checking into both flights from your original port - even then you would in all likeliness not make it.
