14 life hacks from airport employees that will make your next flight easierPictolic
The inconveniences of air travel can range from slightly annoying to catastrophic, whether it is a flight cancellation or an endless queue for inspection. Fortunately, good Reddit users united and asked airport employees, including porters and flight attendants, to share life hacks, so to speak, from the original source.
These tips will help you better reschedule your next flight.
You can not pay for the use of a luggage cart if you find an empty cart left by someone at the entrance to the terminal. If you return it to its place later, you will also get a penny.
Remove the batteries from electric toothbrushes and other appliances before packing them. Vibrating suitcases have repeatedly caused an emergency landing of an aircraft due to safety concerns.
If you have lost something, check all the lost and found bureaus without exception. The security service, the airport police and each airline has its own.
Everything that lies in the lost and found office for more than 90 days is then distributed. So if you really need something, for example, a certain charger for your phone, just ask. Surely there will be at least one such unclaimed within 90 days, and they will simply give it to you.
Instead of putting small items and jewelry in a separate tray during their screening, it is better to put them in the pocket of a jacket or jacket or in a separate bag. This will free up space on the conveyor belt and speed up the process of passing the security check.
In order not to pay exorbitantly for a bottle of water, take an empty bottle with you and fill it when you pass the security service.
Some security services, for example in the United States, allow you to take bottles of drinks with you if this drink is frozen to a solid state and is not formally a liquid.
Ask the flight attendant for a full can (package) of the drink that you ordered. Most likely, you will be given it.
Give the flight attendants chocolate. Flight attendants bring each other sweets when they are not flying for work. They may mistake you for a colleague and serve you better on board. In any case, they will be pleased.
If the flight is canceled or more tickets are booked for it than there are seats, call the airline's hotline instead of getting in an awfully long queue. A customer service representative can do the same as an employee in the terminal. You can get in line and call at the same time to speed up the process of solving the problem.
Bring an extension cord with you. You will have additional outlets, and someone will definitely want to get acquainted with you.
This may not work, but it's worth a try: move your computer's clock back a little to extend the validity of free Wi-Fi.
Include your flight number in the car reservation so that the representative of the car rental company is aware of whether your flight has been delayed and when to wait for you.
There is such a site — seatguru.com where, based on the reviews of previous passengers, you can see which seat is best in a particular plane.
