Airline Travel

Blue AirplaneWhen you purchase/reserve your airline tickets be sure to request seats. Have the seats reserved even if they can not seat your family altogether or if they are undesirable.  It is easier to be bumped from a flight without seat assignments because most airlines over book their flights. 

Blue AirplaneIf your seats can not be assigned at the time you reserve your tickets get to the airport as early as you can.  Most airlines save 30 to 40 percent of their seats for airport check-in.  The earlier you check-in the more likely you will be able to get seats together.

Blue AirplaneReconfirm your flights directly with the airlines 24 hours prior to travel and that also includes your return flight. Airlines have toll free numbers or you can check right on-line at their website.

Blue AirplaneMost airlines now issue e-tickets which means you can print your boarding passes directly from their website. Also, you can print your boarding passes from the automated ticket machines at the airport, you may need to use the same credit card that you originally purchased your tickets with.  Checking-in online or at the automated ticket machines will save you time.

Blue AirplaneMost airline websites have complete information on flight times, baggage requirements, carry-on information, ID requirements and security check points.
