Flight Rules

For safety's sake and to ease your way through the airport, remember the following:
  • Check your flight status before you go to the airport -- schedules change more these days.
  • If you're taking a flight after a stopover, reconfirm your onward booking a day in advance.
  • Allow at least an hour for check-in on domestic flights, three for international trips.
  • Fly in the mornings -- takeoffs are less likely to be slowed by earlier delays. (One famous exception: foggy New Delhi in winter!)
  • For a good ID, take your driver's license or passport with you.
  • Check heavy stuff. Assume carry-ons will be scrutinized. The less you carry, the faster you'll get through.
  • Don't wrap gifts. You may have to unwrap and show them to security.
  • Leave knives, scissors, nail clippers, tweezers, screwdrivers, knitting needles, toy guns at home or pack them in checked luggage.
