Flight Carriers

With all the talk about airport security and the new rules that TSA employees must implement (sorry if you don't want naked photos of yourself floating around or don't want to be felt up before you get dinner & a movie) let's talk about flight carries. Who do you prefer to fly with? Which airlines offer the best rates?

When booking a flight, do you stay with one carrier to rack up the miles to get free trips and hotel stays? Or do you go on and just compare prices and choose the lower?

JSD Tips for comparing flights:
♥ DO use a website like or if you're just looking for the cheapest deal
♥ DO sign up with a specific airline frequent flyer program if you find yourself traveling with them quite often. You can use the miles you traveled to earn free flights, hotel stays, magazines etc.
♥DON'T wait until the last minute to book a flight! You'll be paying way more than you want to. Know you want to travel during the New Year's holiday? If you haven't booked now, depending on where you're going--it's going to be one expensive flight!
♥ DON'T overlook the EXTRA fees flight carriers charge! Baggage fees are the new thing---Southwest has bags fly free! If not, you have to pay for your bags to fly-both ways.
♥ DO make sure you want to travel the dates you choose when booking. Carriers charge extra fees to make any changes to your itinerary.

So what your tips when booking flights? We'd love to hear from you!
Happy Travels!

SECURITY! Security Hassels and how to deal

♥ With holiday travels already being a headache, now we have to worry about the extra headache of full body scanners vs pat downs. If stuffing everything into one suitcase isn't enough right? Guess having you partially undress wasn't enough either? Well, no matter how much you DON'T like the new guidelines all travelers must go through the Airport Security.
Flying for the first time? Or has it been a while since you've flown? Read some of our quick tips to help make your holidays travels less of a hassel! ♥

JSD Quick Tips:
♥ Have your boarding pass and I.D. READY! This is the first checkpoint with security, and you don't want to hold up the line searching for these documents.
♥ Try to wear less to the airport! Sounds funny huh? Well believe it or not, this will save you time when you begin to put on your striptease for the TSA workers! If it's cold, try to wear ONE jacket. You will have to take off your outerwear, shoes, and belts (any accessories that will make the metal detector go off)
DON'T carry any liquids in your carry-on or purse, briefcase, etc. The TSA has special guidelines for liquids, but just in case if you have any doubts about what is acceptable
don't bring it!
ARRIVE EARLY! Lines during the holidays + the new security guidelines can really cause holdups. You don't want to miss your flight because you couldn't find your fav scarf or lost your Ipod!
DO online check-in (including bag check) to save time to stand in line for security.
♥ If you are bringing gifts along with you-do not wrap them! They may ask you to unwrap it if they feel they need to inspect it!

Now the big thing- full body scanner or pat down?? Well the full body scanner sounds quick and harmless. Pat down--is a little bit more personal, and who wants to get that personal with TSA--you don't even know their name and they're moving in to second base!
Have any questions? Check the websites of the carriers who are servicing your flights for more info!
♥Happy Holidays!♥
