    I haven't flown since 2002.

    Advice?



    (I'm flying to Florida from Indiana in late July)



    I know I can go to an Airline Website, but wondered how my fellow travelers here pack and travel on a plane to a sunny location for a week.


    Thanks!

    If you fly into Tampa take US 60 E until you get to US 27 S

    If you fly into Orlando take I-4 W until you get to US 27 S

    I'll be here

    :D

    Carry on luggage is a pain, but many airlines are charging hefty fees for checking luggage. Be sure to check that out.

    Wear shoes easy to take off and put on. Nothing liquid or gel larger than 3 ounces? (I'm thinking) unless it is in checked luggage--it will have to be in a clear plastic bag for up close examination. Nothing sharp on person. Wear clothing that will make a pat down less traumatic. I always carry a laptop but keep it loose in a carry on case as it has to be put by itself in a tray for scanning.

    Oh, and don't wear an 'adult diaper' or anything like that. I was just reading that the TSA made a 91-yr-old woman take hers off today or yesterday. It's enough to make a body scream!!!

    Advice?

    Make sure the feathers are properly secured and don't get to close to the sun.

    Head down, mouth shut, I.D. at the ready.
    If you must choose, go thru the x-ray scanner thing.
