Do Prepare for that Security Line - The security line is a headache, but it is even much worse if you get to the front of the line and you didn’t prepare ahead of time. Remove your belt, shoes, jewelry and prepare to put your laptop in another bin, so you aren’t wasting time when it’s your turn to go through.
Don’t Check Luggage - Avoid checking luggage as much as possible. Taking everything in a carry-on reduced the possibilities that your luggage ends up on the opposite ends of the earth. Not to mention, you don’t have to be left waiting an extra 20 minutes in baggage
Do Use Pre-Check - Savvy travelers know that the TSA Pre Check saves time and stress. It is only at a select few airports, but if it is available at your home airport, use it. It helps you skip the main headaches that most travelers have to deal with during security checks.
Don’t Neglect Your Entertainment - In-flight entertainment (IFE) is known for not working at the worst times. So we highly recommend that you load up your tablet and computer with good books, tv shows and movies to get you through a flight. We once had our IFE stop working about 30 minutes into an international flight. It. Wasn’t. Fun. Learn from our mistake.
Do Wear Comfortable and Layered Clothing - Airplanes seem to love freezing cabins and thin blankets. So, even if you are going from one hot destination to another, you should layer your clothes and bring a scarf to go with it. Never, ever rely on the airplane to have a suitable blanket because you will regret it when you are battling frostbite at 35,000 feet.
You don't need to go into battle every time you enter the airport. Although there will be things that make you want to scream and wonder why you ever decided to set foot inside an airport, you can increase your chances of having a stress-free experience and arrive to your destination refreshed and ready to tackle the world.
