Flight Attendant Shares Summer Travel Tips

A woman by the name of Kate took to Twitter to give travelers some advice as many airlines struggle to deal with the high demands of air-travel.

“Flying this summer is ROUGH!!! I feel like as a Flight Attendant I should attempt to share some tips to get you through airline travel for the foreseeable future,” @kateeya_ tweeted. 

Here are the some of the tips she recommends below!

  1. If your travel is less than seven hours, drive.
  2. Download and use the airline app to track flight times, baggage, or make changes to your reservation.
  3. Fly much earlier then you need to especially if you have a special event. “This week I saw many people miss important things like weddings, funerals, cruises, and graduations. The tears were very real, for very real reasons, and there was nothing I could do!,” Kate tweeted.
  4. Keep in mind summer is prone to thunderstorms that can delay flights/
  5. Schedule long layovers.
