Boarding passMake Sure Your Frequent Flyer Number Has Been Recorded
If you’re a frequent flyer (FF) junkie like me, you probably already know this tip but just in case you aren’t (or aren’t yet): It’s really important to doublecheck your FF number is on your ticket to make sure you get credit for your flight. If it’s not there, you can call the airline, update your status online or ask the gate agent to help you out—but no matter what, take care of it before boarding when the agents will likely be slammed.

    Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored at work so I decided to browse your website on my iphone during
    lunch break. I enjoy the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to
    take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my mobile ..

    I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, very good site!
