While it's probably better that flying be affordable instead of posh, it probably doesn't have to feel quite so much like cattle herding. There are a few ways around that, and we look at a couple of them: TSA PreCheck and Global Entry.
Traveling on your own can be stressful, and when you add caring for your pet it can be downright overwhelming. Familiarize yourself with the TSA inspection process so that can be prepared for when you are next in line.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) catches a lot of flack for some of its practices, but without them we would undoubtedly be in danger when flying. In 2014 alone, the TSA seized over 2,000 guns. What else have people unsuccessfully tried to take on an airplane?
The No-Fly List is kind of an unwieldy beast, and not exactly the precise instrument it's supposed to be. People routinely wind up on the list accidentally, missing their flights and dealing with harassment due to these false positives.
For many, the TSA line is the most stressful part of flying. Fortunately, there are some things you can be aware of to minimize the chances of getting that extra pat-down. Or, if you're really lonely, you could always do these things and guarantee that extra pat-down.
The REAL ID Act of 2005 is a federal law that put stringent requirements and standards into place for U.S. identifying documents, including state-issued drivers’ licenses and immigration papers. The TSA is phasing in REAL ID guidelines for air travel.
