How do I know when the first departing flight is?

My flight leaves at 6:40 AM. Info for ABQ airport says the ticket counter opens 60 mins. before the first departing flight. Sooooo how do I know when the first departing flight is, in order to know when the ticket counter opens? I think there is *probably* an earlier flight than mine but who knows, and I don't want to get there super early just to stand in line outside the ticket counter.

You look up the first departing flight of the day on the ABQ web site?

Looks like the first Southwest flight for tomorrow departs at 5:05AM, so the counter would open at 4:05. I presume most daily flights depart around 5:00AM at the earliest.

So why not just show up at the ticket counter at 5:40?

Anxiety is the reason. Also traveling with kids. If I have an A boarding pass the flight will probably start boarding at 6:10ish so getting to the ticket counter at 5:40 doesn't give us much time to stand in line there, then get through security, then get to the gate.
