Air Travel tips

-Items will not shoot from overhead bin the instant you place them there. Close the door of the bin gently.

-Don’t get dressed at the opening of the security scanner. Grab your stuff and move to an open area further away so the next person can do the same.

-Your bag is too big for the overhead.

-Middle seat gets the arm rests. It’s horrible to be in the middle seat. The arm rests are compensation.

-When reclining do so slowly. You don’t get extra frequent-flyer miles for top speed of seat recline. When you do it too fast you risk the crunch of the laptop the person behind you has placed on the napkin-sized tray table.
