Winter is upon us and it is time to prepare for those rough days of snow, sleet and freezing rain. Below are a few things to keep in mind during your airline travel this time of year.
1) Track Your Flight – This is key to keeping you informed. Two sites used commonly to track current flight information are www.flightaware.com and www.flightview.com . These sites are often updates even faster than the airline websites.
2) Be Prepared for Delays – This can be especially important when traveling with children. During bad weather days, your travel time can extend by 3-4hrs. Pack extra activities, books or movies to help ease the trauma of long waits in the terminal or on the tarmac.
3) Bring a Blanket In Your Carry-On – Planes get cold when they sit on the tarmac. And let’s be honest, the little 3ft blanket the airline provides just won’t cut it.
