If you are choosing to fly this holiday season, then we have some tips, tricks, and pieces of advice that may help you not to get so frustrated.
For one thing, be aware that there will probably be a longer than usual wait at security — and not just thanks to those ridiculous rules concerning gels and liquids. Don’t get me started on those.
If you have any frequent flier miles or options, make sure you know what they are and what they can do for you.
Have plenty of diversions. Bring books, an iPod, food, et cetera — and if you’re traveling with kids, make sure they have things to keep them distracted.
You need to have a phone number for everything: the airline, the hotel, friends, family, car rental agencies, and so on.
Keep up on your flight status, always.

Finally, I have been waiting for Delta and Northwest to merge together. Recently, I went on a business trip to New Jersey and guess what I booked? Northwest – well, my surprise that Northwest is now part of Delta was pleasant. The airplanes are actually really awesome and while this might have happened last month, I think that if you had no idea it was happening, you should!
Northwest is one of those airlines that I actually really like and before I started hardcore traveling, I did not realize the difference between the airlines … now I do though. I realize that the airlines are certainly different and the airplanes themselves are different depending on the airline.
The merge right now is going really smooth and by the end of the year – Northwest should definitely be all merged into Delta!
