Being a flight attendant has taught me many “tricks of the trade”. I am constantly learning new tips and best practices for traveling.
My job has great perks and I have had the opportunity to visit lots of countries. Over time I have learned a lot about traveling. Now, I am going to give YOU my travel tips, recommendations, how-to travel suggestions… not to mention I have some AWESOME travel product reviews and giveaways coming up as well!!
Let’s begin our journey with one of my favorite airport pick up/drop off tips!
Flight Attendant Travel Tip of the Day:
When you are dropping off or picking someone up from the airport you have two options: Arrivals and Departures. Usually you head to arrivals to pick up and departures to drop off right? Well, save time and avoid the hassle by not following the arrivals/departures rules.
You see, arrivals is nearly empty early in the morning (not too many people flying in at 6am!) So if I have an early flight I get dropped off at the arrivals (not the normal departures). This way my husband avoids the busy high-time traffic!
And the opposite goes for departures. I will pick friends up from the departures level when the time is right. Less flights go out at night. So after about 5pm I tell them to meet me up at the departures! No lines, no crowds! Because again, not as many people flying out that late.
See how that works? What do you think about my tip?
