AL – It’s that time of year for people to be counting down every second until they get on a plane to head somewhere with a beach and lots of sunshine.
But for some the flight can be a serious pain. Recently there was a great conversation on Reddit about how to make flights less miserable and here are some of the ideas that came out of the talk.
1. Locks on zippered suitcases are pretty much useless. According to user royalsiblings, “You can pop a zipper with a pen and drag the locked zipper pulls around the bag to close them back up. I’ve done this many times to identify bags that are tagless and locked.”
2. Bring your own headphones. Reddit user ichigo29 “I used to work for warehouse that supplied a certain airline with items. The headsets that are given to you are not new, despite being wrapped up. They are taken off the flight, “cleaned”, and then packaged again,”
3. Buy and fly on Tuesday. Redditor Drama_Llama “I work Revenue Management for an airline. On average, the cheapest time to BUY a ticket is Tuesday afternoon. The cheapest time to FLY is Tuesday, Wednesday, or Saturday. This applies to US flights in my experience,”
So hopefully this helps out a bit if you are planning on flying anywhere soon.
