|Donít put your home address on your checked baggage. Instead use your office address and phone number. Why tempt baggage handlers by telling them you are away from home? It only takes one or two bad apples to spoil the barrel. |
On the inside of your checked baggage, be sure to have your itinerary including phone numbers and your cell number in plain sight in case your bag is lost. If the tag comes off the outside, they will know where to send it other than Scottsboro, Alabama.
Healthy flying is very important. There are a myriad of complications that can occur due to sitting a long time in one position. From time to time, get up and walk around the cabin to improve leg circulation. This is very important for expectant moms and seniors.
Dehydration is a real problem on long flights. The humidity in an airplane can be under 10% so avoid alcohol, gaseous beverages and caffeine which acts like a diuretic. Stick with the old stand by, water and be sure to drink plenty of it.
