There are certain things you can do in order to make flying a lot easier and cheaper for you. They are easy to follow and you can even apply them on your next trip.
Book a Boeing 767
If you have different choices available for an airline and you want a plane that has enough space, choose a 767. This is a mid to large size aircraft that has fewer middle seats as opposed to other models. It also has two aisles but there are more spaces as opposed to larger aircrafts. When having no room for your elbow is a big deal for you, this is the type of plane that you should spend your money on.
Always have an airline app in your phone
Most airlines now have sophisticated apps. Delays, changes and other announcements are made using these apps. Instant ticket purchasing can also be done with the help of the app. You can even read about potential discounts from the app. Once you have reserved your ticket, you don’t have to print it anymore. You just have to show your booking using your app and it will already be accepted. Since everything is in real time, it gives you more peace of mind as you are on your way to the airport or while waiting for you flight.
Consider investing on memberships
There are airlines offering memberships for frequent flyers. For instance, some small airlines would allow you to take an all-you-can-fly service so it would be easy for you to move from one airport to another. For those who are running back and forth between offices, this is such a huge help. Add to that other privileges offered to you once you are already a member. You can even arrive 15 minutes prior to the actual flight and will still be allowed boarding in some cases.
Your small bag should always be ready
This bag must be prepared even if you have no upcoming trip. Once you do, you just have to pick the bag up and you are ready to leave. This prevents you from forgetting the essentials. You will also not spill things because you did not properly separate them. Imagine mixing liquids and your gadgets due to lack of time to pack. Besides, you might have instant trips that were totally unplanned. With -this ready-to-go bag, everything is set right away.
Never forget your frequent flyer points
A lot of airlines think that people forget about the points they have earned as frequent flyers. This is how they make more money. Always remind yourself of how much you have earned and if it is good enough to be used to get discounts or even free tickets. The total cost could be greatly reduced once the points are counted.
Your next trip would be way better when you remember these airline related secrets. Most of all, just enjoy the ride. There could be a lot of unexpected things along the way, but it should not frustrate you or make you feel bad about the whole journey.
