17 Air Travel Tips

In which Hank imparts some wisdom that he has gained through the last four years of getting on planes once every four months. An act that, to be clear, makes my carbon footprint so dramatically higher than average that I am deeply embarrassed by my own life.

    For tip #10, that unfortunately does not apply for southwest airlines where you do have to get in line due to their open seating system.

    Why would John want a room next to Hank? Maybe he wanted to hear an abundance of Katherine.

    Flew commercially for the first time by myself recently. Got one of those biscuit cookie things on one of my flights. They were pretty good! Also, this video helped me prepare, so thanks.

    what the hell is wrong with security in the usa??

    So I flew to Memphis this past February, and if I may humbly add some things, not to step on Hank's toes but just to be helpful: A) If you get through security and you have one of those rollie bags (like Hank showed), they will give you a tag to put on it and then they can take it and put it elsewhere on the plane. This is AWESOME because you don't have to worry about paying for checking a bag, or that bag being put on the wrong plane and you end up in Tennessee and your clothes end up in Alaska, looking for you (see what I did there?). You also don't have to worry about lifting a somewhat heavy bag above your head into the overhead compartment. BUT I noticed like 95% of these bags are black and when you are lined up in the tunnel thing that connects the gate to the plane and you're in the back of that line, every black bag looks the same. So if you can buy a rollie bag that is red or yellow, you're ahead of the game. B) If you're going to be traveling a lot, the smaller the laptop you can travel with, the better. I got stuck in Newark International for HOURS once (delayed coming out of Memphis, missed a connecting flight, had to way for a van to take me to Allentown, PA), and I had my heavy, 17.5 inch computer on my arm and at the end of hours, my shoulder was ready to fall off. And of course, in the world we live in, leaving your stuff sitting somewhere is completely not an option. So now I have a lovely 11.6'' screen laptop that, when it is in its bag and on my arm, weighs like nothing. Well, it's weighs 5 lbs which might as well be nothing. It's beautiful. Does it have all the bells and whistles of my other one? No, but it has enough, it does the basic computer things for when I travel.

    I would love to have a job that lets me travel a lot that eventually I'm in first class.

    Excellent tips here, especially the tip about tolerance for the mood of other passengers. One further tip – make sure you get up and walk around or just stretch yourself out at least every hour. This will make the "cramped in a airplane seat" feeling reduce and so improve how you are physically feeling and therefore your mood – obviously it's not healthy to sit in a seat and not move for several hours.

    My travel tip: pack for what WILL happen, not what MIGHT happen.(exceptions: first aid kit and duct tape)
