Delta Air Lines Shares Some Holiday Travel Tips

Delta Air LinesTraveling and flying over the holidays can be intense . The airports are packed with people trying to get home or head off to their vacation destinations.

Last year, on December 31, we took a bump with Delta Air Lines which gave us $2,700 in vouchers good for future flights. Find out what we used our vouchers for here.

At the end of the week we’re heading off on a trip that we booked with the above mentioned Delta Air Lines vouchers.

The airline sent me an e-mail a few days back with some tips for easier holiday travel.

I’ve never traveled with holiday presents so this tip wasn’t of use to me but I did find it interesting. Delta says that its best to leave gifts unwrapped for security. Rather than waste your time wrapping gifts, just to have them messed up at security, it’s best to follow this suggestion.

Make sure to arrive at the airport at least 2 hours before your domestic flight due to potentially longer wait times. Kim and I always like to get to the airport early. Better early than late! Also, when you’re traveling with kids, why get stressed out by cutting it close.

I already have the Fly Delta app dowloaded but I can’t say that I’ve used it much. According to the airline, it can help you navigate the airport. I think we can get by just fine without using the app. Do any of you have experience using it?

For those of you returning to the US from an international destination, Delta suggests using Mobile Passport Control. I wrote about this option 3 years back but I’ve yet to give it a try. I planned to test it out but have had Global Entry since it debuted.

Due to a mistake I made, I’m still waiting to renew my Global Entry membership. When we return from our next trip, I plan to give Mobile Passport Control a try.

Do you have any suggestions to help make travel a bit easier over the holidays? If so, feel free to share them in the comments below!

Oh, and before I forget, Happy Holidays!

  1. The delta app is useful while traveling. you can use it for a paperless boarding pass (though i prefer and use a paper one printed ahead at home or office), it chimes when your checks bags are loaded, unloaded onto the plane, it chimes when boarding begins, it shows gates, and connecting gates, and real time flight delays. also, if you encounter disrupted operations, rebookings, etc, you can see it all change in your hand, new boarding passes, you can assign seats onto newly booked flights. it is yes useful.
