    hi all; sorry if this has been done already...

    i haven't traveled in a while via airplane. last time i flew somewhere was in 2000. just wanted to get some good tips and advice from all of you in terms of what and what not to bring with you on the plane; to be at the airport 3 hours in advance, etc...

    like for example: i know you can't bring paint w/you that's for sure, but can you bring caps? will they confiscate that?

    sorry for the stupid question; i really don't know. as always your respones are much appreciated.

    your humble friend,

    you can bring caps. just don't have anything sharp on your carry on. they'll take it away.
    american customs officers are dicks too.

    where are you going, slaver?

    three hours is too early for the airport, they tell everyone that in case of a delay and to spread out the check in process to reduce lines.
    out of your town, i checked in 30 minutes before my (international) flight. so who knows. kinda wish i missed it though.

    Travelling is great.

    Just figure that you dont want to carry anything
    even remotely suspicious on a plane.
    I was given a flyer called 'Introduction to Islam' on the street
    and I just tossed it in my bag. Please believe It got tossed before going to the airport.

    According to Michael Moore, you can bring up to four lighters and two packs of matches.

    i know who youre gonna visit slave! :)

    well i try not to carry too much. i never check in my bags though. i am always afraid those fuckers would loose it. carry on is the best way, in my opinion.

    nothing sharp, they will take it away. you can pack things that are sharp but you'll have to check it in.

    i'd like to visit her too..make sure you put in a good word for me, i have never met her but i might be trying to hit her up (through post) in a while..


    domestic flights are simple to prepare for, mostly cuz they're short.

    as far as check in times, allow a half an hour from arriving at the airport till plane boarding.. unless you are checking bags, allow one hour.

    as far as airlines,
    northwest is a bitch about early check in..they will not let you on a plane unless you've checked in at least 20 minutes before takeoff.

    southwest is most lenient, if the plane is still on the ground, your on..

    security isn't bad.
    they stopped the random checks after main security
    don't wear jewelry, a belt, shoes with metal or a bra full of a heavy metal underwire if you don't wanna be searched thoroughly

    they will let you carry on most things that are reasonable (nothing sharp, highly flammable or aerosol)
    caps will not be an issue.

    for extras, i bring a snack or two (like a clif bar and some pretzels) plus a drink in case the drink service doesn't start for a while
    i also like to bring reading material and music.
    but it's only a domestic flight
    don't get bogged down with too much extra shit.

    the airlines will generally provide you with limited reading material, and a pen if you ask for it

    get your pillow as soon as you get on the plane
    a seat near the front is better so you can de-plane fast.

    good luck!

    hi slave. i hope you have an awsome and safe trip!

    well, 3 hours is on the safe side, usually we do that, or atleast 2.

    as for the stuff you can bring on the plane, like everyone said, sharp items is a no no. you cant bring scissors (even the lil kind you cut your nose hairs with, my dad learned the hard way, ha ha ha) or even tweezers. thats how strict they are-- but thats only if its a carry-on. if you check them in, then they're fine.

    there is a fee for any bag over a certain weight.. i think 75 lbs? dont bring your whole woredrobe/makeup studio with you, just always bring the basics you need. i always used to over pack, it was so retarted because i didnt use half of the clothes/makeup/shoes id bring. and bags/backpacks instead of a purse is easier (in my opinon) to travel in. i hate when shit spills out of my purse.

    im not sure about paint.. :( sorry.

    im not sure how long your trip is but i get bored easily so bring a book, your cd player, magazines, shit like that or you go crazy (i do!) and bring snacks!!!!!!!!! :D

    have fun!

    Yeah, well I know too..So there...:crazy:

    Anyhoo....Here's a rhyme for ya.

    Tips are ok,
    knives are not.
    Come and see me,
    Or your gonna get shot.
    Carry-on is best,
    Nomadda where you go.
    Be sure to pack well,
    Prepare for rain and snow.
    I be here waiting,
    planes are fun.
    I really just need,
    to get the hell out of this sun.

    thank you awesome people!! (and my myspace buds as well):)

    yeah the media loves to makes it sound like EVERYTHING has changed bigtime since 2001 - making travellers paranoid. i haven't travelled bcuz the whole idea of going anywhere (especially out of the country) seems like a hassle at the airport: long lines, delays, lost luggage, customs, just pure chaos.

    but hearing it straight from you guys/gals is a big relief.

    aint shit changed.
    [email protected]#$% knows the deal (not so surprisingly, ha).
    anymore than 1 hour early to the airport, and you'll be bored off your ass.

    i've never met anyone that flew to kansas on purpose. weird.
    i've also never met anyone that flew to, or even was from, either of the dakotas.
    is anyone here from the dakotas?
    what the fuck goes on in the dakotas?
    those states suck, IMO.
    we should trade them to canada in exchange for some putine, and strippers that you can jerk off on for $40can.

    (for the record, i dont eat putine or jerk off on stripeprs)

    south D has negative population growth. so it stands to reason you dont meet anyone who lives there or is willing to admitt they're from their.
