1. Don’t set off the metal detectors
Metal jewelry may seem like a great idea when you put it on. It may even look fantastic with your outfit, but it’s really not worth the hassle of having to remove all of it while standing in the security line before going through a metal detector. Pairing up a pretty plastic or metal looking piece of jewelry will work just as well while making your traveling experience a whole lot more manageable.
2. Don’t be afraid to take the nice bag
Sure you might think that putting the “nice” bag safely in your luggage is probably a lot safer and that it’ll be okay. The truth is that your fancy bag is probably a lot safer up in the cabin with you than it is in the bag, even if that bag is a Road Quest Duffle
3. Don’t be afraid to double bag it
While we’re on the topic of bags, don’t be afraid to double bag it! We all seem to forget sometimes that we are allowed to take two bags onto the plane with us, so bring the nice bag and then show off your awesome new Marvel Legends Cabin Spinner as well.
4. Don’t change your style
If you’re the type of person who looks better after a ten kilometer run than what most people look like after walking to the fridge then don’t shame yourself into dressing down to fit in. Let your flag fly and wear whatever you feel the most comfortable in. You spend 8 hours a day in those clothes at work and look great doing it so why do you want to change that for the plane?
5. Don’t strut your knit
I don’t care if your grandmother knitted that jersey for you when you were 4 years old and you’ve worn it every Christmas for the past 26 years. That itchy and scratchy jersey is only going to get more itchy and scratchy when you’re on the plane. After 26 years with that scarf I think that we can both agree that Grandmas hand knitted garments are no longer fashionable. It’s time to upgrade my dear, it doesn’t have to be Cashmere but it can’t be “Grandmere” (Grandma Wear).
6. Don’t forget the blanket/pillow/scarf/thing
While we’re on the topic of scarfs and knitted jerseys. Don’t forget to take your blanket scarf with you on the plane. It’ll keep you warm, looking good and double as a pillow if you really need it to.
