- We know the drill… one suitcase or duffel and one carry-on. None of us want to check bags. So if you don’t have to, don’t do it! Think before you pack.
- DON’T use your purse or laptop bag as your additional carry-on. Pick a bag that can stow your purse and laptop along with your toiletries and other small items.
- DO pack interchangeable pieces. If you are going to be traveling for more than four days, take advantage of hotel laundry services OR carry your own travel size detergent and wash the small stuff in your sink.
- DON’T bring your entire closet. Stick to your first choices and leave the rest at home. Limit the clothing you pack and wear what you can onboard.
- DO bring THREE pairs of shoes. Pack two of them, and wear one.

- Roll your jeans, t-shirts , and belts.
- Put larger items in your suitcase first.
- Pack the heavy items first (i.e. shoes, blazers, heavy pants, etc.). These items will be at the bottom of your suitcase or duffel.
- Pack the light and small stuff last (i.e. t-shirts). These items will be at the top of your suitcase or duffel or be squeezed into the tiny crevices between the bigger heavier items.
- Use electronic boarding passes whenever possible.
- Check in as close to 24-hours as you possibly can.
- Need help choosing? Try www.seatguru.com. When choosing your coach seats, the seating between the wings are the safest place on a plane.
- If you are not flying in business class, be courteous and accommodating to flight and gate attendants and remember, well-dressed single passengers have a better chance of getting bumped to an available business class seat.
- If you are an international traveler, bring an eye mask and ear plugs for sleeping.
