Easier Boarding

Did you know that if you require time and help to board, you and your Assistant can pre-board. This gives you more time and space to find your seat and place your carry on luggage close to you before all other passengers crowd the aisles and fill luggage compartments. Be sure to sit close to the airline boarding agents.

Did you know if your flight is cancelled due to weather, the airline is not responsible to pay for a hotel or food? Protect yourself. Look into travel insurance. Check what kind of coverage you may already have with your credit card. Will it cover unforeseen circumstances such as weather? If not, look into travel insurance.
