TRANSCRIPT

  • Maybe it has been a few years

    since you boarded an airplane.

    Perhaps this is your first flight

    ever.

    Regardless, there have been

    changes in recent years due to

    stricter security measures since

    the attacks on 9/11.

    The economy has also

    changed the way airlines now

    operate.

  • Besides new fees and airline

    procedures, there are some basics

    that you should learn prior to going

    on your trip.

    Before you take flight, here is what

    you should know:

    Meals cost money. If you have not

    been on a plane in quite a few

    years, you might be surprised to find

    out that your breakfast or lunch is

    no longer included in your airfare.

  • If you choose to have a meal

    provided by the airline, be

    prepared to pay.

    If you want to bring your own food

    onto the plane to avoid buying a

    meal, you should also know that

    there are restrictions on the

    amount liquids you are allowed to bring with you.

  • The Transportation Security

    Administration created the

    3-1-1 for carry-ons rule that

    you should familiarize

    yourself with to prevent any

    hassles before boarding.

    There are exceptions for

    baby bottles.

    There is a fee for booking a

    flight over the phone.

  • Most airlines now charge

    up to $35 when you decide

    to speak to a live person

    instead of going online for

    a flight reservation. In

    order to avoid an

    unnecessary fee, do not

    pick up the phone to

    reserve a ticket.

    You are far better off going

    to an online travel site like

    Travelocity or Expedia, or

    going directly to the

    airlines website.

  • What you wear helps you go through the

    security line faster.

    Due to added security measures since

    9/11, you have to take your shoes off

    when going through security checkpoints.

    Therefore, it is best to wear shoes that

    easily slide off, or can be tied and untied

    quickly.

    Do not wear boots or sandals that take a

    while to strap on and off.

  • Wear just a light jacket or

    one sweater because you

    also have to remove

    additional layers of

    clothing.

    If you think you need a lot

    of layers, throw them in

    your carry-on ahead of

    time so they are available

    to you when you feel a chill coming on.

  • Also, do not wear a large

    amount of jewelry because

    you will need to take them all

    off when you go through the

    metal detector.

    You can visit the

    Transportation Security

    Administration website for

    more helpful travel tips.

  • You can purchase flight travel

    insurance in case of injury or

    death while on board.

    Most people are unaware that

    this type of insurance exists, and

    it is important to know that there

    is flight travel insurance, not

    just standard life insurance, for

    those who need to travel for any

    reason.

  • Flight accident

    insurance protects your

    family in the event of

    accidental death, loss of a

    limb, or loss of eyesight

    while on an airplane.

    Although it is usually safe

    to travel by plane, it is

    wise to take the

    precautionary measure of

    purchasing the right flight

    accident insurance plan

    for you and your family.

  • If you are traveling

    overseas, it is

    imperative that you

    find out the travel

    warnings and

    advisories for the

    country you are

    visiting.

    The United States

    issues these

    warnings in order to

    safeguard its citizens

    from any possible

    dangers such as riots

    and terrorist attacks.

  • Before you board the plane, be

    prepared for any kind of

    unexpected events such as

    cancellations, bad weather, or

    possibly lost luggage.

  • Do what you can to have a comfortable,

    safe, and hassle-free flight.
