We have an early morning flight from Mumbai to Cochin on Sunday morning. How much before the flight do we need to get to the airport?

Make that 90 minutes early
Gerlinde is right about the hour-in-advance check in time. However, having just taken six internal flights in the past month I think it might be a good idea to show up a wee bit earlier. Airline security is extraordinarily tight right now and this does entail a bit of time to get through it all. On several occasions, both my carry-on bag and my person were searched four separate times before I was allowed to board. Indian/Alliance Air seemed a bit more fanatical about this than Jet Air. Also, be certain that you have identified your checked luggage (and that it is tagged as such) before you get on your plane or it will be left behind. The upside from all this security consciousness is that I was always confident that my checked luggage would arrive with me.
