Many of our clients are finding this to be a little bit of an
over-kill, HOWEVER, some are not.
get to the airport and be delayed getting from the curb to your
seat in the plane to the point where you miss your flight, we
suggest you plan to arrive early. It just depends on the
passenger load in the airports as to what delays you may run into
in your travel.
to the time delays, you will find greater restrictions on carry-on
luggage. The standards for carry-on's seem to be a moving
target, so we suggest you call your airline to review the current
conditions just prior to your flight.
You may want
to rethink what you carry with you on trips. For instance,
instead of taking a laptop to complete work while flying, you
may find a Palm Pilot or Pocket PC with a keyboard easier to fit
into the new carry-on's. Handheld computing tools will also
boot faster when being reviewed by security staff -- making your
path from curb to plane seat faster. You can even FedEX
items ahead to arrive at your destination the day you arrive --
avoiding possibly damaging baggage handling processes.
Finally, many airlines are rescheduling flights. They aren't
very good at notifying ticket holders, so you should call a few
days in advance to review the status of your scheduled flight.
