    He was checking in Monday for a flight home to San Francisco.

    He was checking in Monday for a flight home to San Francisco.

    I read it in the newspaper. I think it should be "he was checking in on Monday" am I correct?

    Re: He was checking in Monday for a flight home to San Francisco.

    It's acceptable to omit the "on" in natural, colloquial speech.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
