It’s fair to say that flight travel is a bit more complicated than travel by any other means. Most frequent travelers as they would have come up against something they weren’t aware of before, during or after their travel.
That said, here are 5 important things to keep in mind when traveling by flight:
#1: Important items in the Carry-on bag only
SImply put, don’t check in anything that you cannot afford to lose. Whether they jewels, travel documents, photos or even identification documents, make sure you place them in your carry-on bag
#2: Baggage limitations
It’s always a good idea to ask the airlines what the baggage limitations since it differs from airlines to airlines. Or else you will have to pay extra. Also, make sure you double check your baggage claim tickets to make they match your claim stub that you will use later.
#3: Use ear plugs
Using ear plugs will ensure that you avoid all distraction when in flight. In fact, there are special ear plugs that are used before takeoff and landing so as to equalize the air pressure in your ear drums.
#4: Keep track of that airport code
When checking in luggage, make sure that the three- letter city/ airport code present on your airline matches the three-letter code on the tag they’ve attached with your luggage.
#5: Reconfirm flights
Always confirm the details of your flight at least 24 hours in advance. A good reason for this is because the flight details might have changed during that time. Details such as flight numbers, timing as well as seat assignments.
