Warning: You better arrive 2 hours early if you fly this week –

Posted on

This will be the busiest week of the year for airline travel as everyone heads for grandma’s house for Thanksgiving. This is also a time you will see a lot of families, first time travelers, a lot of kids and babies and seniors in the airports. This means that parking lots will be full and lines will be long. My best advice if you are flying the friendly skies this week is to arrive at the airport at least 2 hours prior to your flight. Taking this one piece of advice will save you a lot of anxiety when you stare at the security line that is one block long and worry about making your flight.

Let’s change the way we treat airline staff this holiday season –

The airline counter agents and staff have to deal with an almost impossible task of telling people during this busy holiday travel season they have to wait in long lines, pay more fees, their flight has been cancelled, their plane is delayed and they will miss their connection, and on and on. Even in slow times the airline staff has one of the most difficult jobs on the planet. Please consider that these people are trying to do the best they can in an often very unpleasant circumstance that they have little to no control over. In the spirit of the holiday season I think it is time for travelers to change our attitude and encourage airline agents with a “thank you” and a smile. Please join me and let’s make this Thanksgiving a real “Thanksgiving”.

How about skipping the shopping mall on Black Friday? –

The best gift you can give this Christmas season is not found at the shopping mall. People today are looking for a “Return on Life” (ROL), celebrating the idea that a rich life is not measured by personal possessions, but by time well-spent with loved ones on journeys to new destinations and the memories created by these experiences. In recent years I have seen a shift in consumer motivation and expectations regarding travel. We are now facing a time of political, and economic uncertainty and people are taking time to reflect on what’s important to them: personal fulfillment and enrichment, quality time with family and friends, and the opportunity to detach from their everyday worries and de-stress. ‘Return on Life” encapsulates these desires, and travel is one of the best conduits to achieving a higher ROL. So on black Friday if you are looking for the “perfect’ gift you may want to pick up the phone and call us at 402-435-8888. Let us help you increase your “Return on Life” with family and friends.
