Top Seven Tips for Flying on an Airplane

Everyone needs to get away on vacation or holiday every now and again.  And sometimes this requires flying, so I am going to provide some tips for flying that will make your next experience smooth and hassle-free.

1. Make sure when you are checking rates you check all the airports in the area, for example, some cities have two airports. Or, if your in a small town such as York, Pa you could fly out of a bigger city such as Harrisburg or Baltimore.

2. When packing, make sure to put your lotion and such in bags. If the luggage gets smashed, at least the lotion won't end up all over your garments.

3. Get to your destination a day early for important events. Not only with this insure you are well rested for the event, but it will also insure that you will be there on time. You don't really want to miss your sibling's wedding or another important event. Trust me, I know, I missed a funeral this way, when the plane I was on was delayed, and I missed my connecting flight. It was a devastatingly sad day for me.

4. If you decide to take a nap, make sure you put your seat-belt over your blanket, or you will have flight attendants waking you during mid-flight to make sure your seat-belt is on when the seat-belt sign lights up.

5. Make sure you take reading material along. Nothing worse than being on a long flight with nothing to do.  You may even want to pick up the latest travel memoir or novel about the place your visiting.

6. Don't leave old tags on your suitcases. You don't want to cause confusion to where your luggage is supposed to to be going. You could end up with your luggage in another state, or worse yet, another country.

7. Chew gum or suck on mints to prevent your ears from popping due to cabin pressure.
