Slide 1: ==== ==== Airfare Secrets Revealed by Former Ticket Agent Visit: Airfare Secrets Revealed ==== ==== By Robert Stewart2 Before The Airport Preparing for a flight should begin long before you head for the airport. You will have a much easier experience the more prepared you are. We all know how travel has changed over the years. Nowadays air travel has become more of a chore than a pleasure. But there are several ways you can make the whole process easier and as stress-free as possible. The purpose of this article is to expose you to the concept of Easy Travel. Choose Your Seat First things first. When you book your flight visit the carriers website and choose your seat. I’m a tall guy so I always choose an exit row window because the exit rows have extra legroom. There are usually two exit rows back to back. Choose the second exit row as these seats recline. The first ones do not. I always choose a window seat. If you choose an aisle seat you will be disturbed every time your fellow passengers need to use the bathroom. Plus, every time someone walks down the aisle, or a flight attendant pushes a cart past you, your arms will pay the price. If you plan on carrying a laptop, portable gaming device or some other type of electronic gizmo check seatguru.com. Input your airline and flight number and seatguru will show you the good seats, bad seats and, more importantly, which seats have power ports. On long flights you can use the power in the seats and save your batteries or recharge your batteries so they are 100% charged when you arrive. Special Services If you need any type of special service, such as a wheelchair or special meal, now is the time to put in your request. It takes a few days for the airlines to process special meals so the sooner you do this the better. Join The Airlines Frequent Flyer Program Next create an account on the carriers website. This will work for you in several ways. You can enroll in the carriers frequent flyer program, which affords you certain benefits down the road. You won’t see much of a return on investment on the first flight but fly a few times and you’ll be able to use the priority lines at check-in and security. This has saved me several times when I have either arrived at the airport late or the security line was insanely long. Another benefit of joining a frequent flyer program is you can use your miles for additional flights or upgrades. The more miles, or flight segments, you gain in a one-year period the higher your frequent flyer status. Because of my status on the airlines I fly regularly I fly first class more often than not at no additional cost. Another cool feature is that you don’t pay for checked luggage if you are an Elite member. That alone can save you $50 per passenger per trip so I say go for it. If you fly enough to get your status to the top tier you will gain access to the airline lounges. This is invaluable if you need to do some work between flights or just need to relax while waiting for a flight. You will also have access to your carrier’s partner’s airline lounges. Check In Before The Airport Most airlines allow you to check-in on their website 24 hours prior to your flight so I suggest you do so. Print your boarding pass before you leave your home or office. This will save you some at the airport. If you have no check-in luggage you can go straight to security. Just show your boarding pass and ID and you’re good to go. If you do have check-in luggage make sure your address at your destination is on some type of luggage tag. I suggest a brightly colored luggage tag so you can identify your luggage more easily on the baggage carousel when you arrive at your final destination. Remember to keep your check-in luggage below 50lbs or you will pay an overweight fee, which varies for different airlines but expect to pay a minimum of $50 per overweight bag. We have several recommendations for durable, lightweight luggage. Speaking of luggage. The list of items that are allowed in your carry-on and checked baggage is a moving target. Before you pack your bags it is advisable to check the TSA website for their latest
Slide 2: prohibited items list. If you do not, and your luggage contains prohibited items, you could be delayed or miss your flight. ID and Passport Finally make sure your travel documents are current. I have spoken to several TSA agents who tell me the number of passengers who come to the airport with expired state ID or passports is significant. No ID. No trip. No exceptions. Conclusion Preparation is the key to a stress-free trip. If you follow these guidelines for Easy Travel I guarantee you will have a much more relaxed experience. Safe Travels!!
