Last chance to lose your keys.

The thing is that not everyone does get to the airport that early going with the DME assigned time. That's why they schedule it so early - to allow for additional pick ups and delays both going to the airport and once you're at the airport. Between pokey guests at each resort stop who need to load/unload their luggage, find seats, to potential rush hour traffic or construction, to back ups at the airport check-in counters or TSA. There's a lot of variables. I agree that if all goes well and according to plan, the amount of time you have at the airport is overkill. But, with so many things out of your control while taking DME, this is why many of us don't recommend taking it using a later flight time and suggest an Uber or private transport instead. This at least eliminates some of the potential slow downs with DME.there’s just no reason to get to the airport that early.
