Flying as a Commercial Passenger in the United States.


I was thinking of this on my trip home from New York.  First, my wife had her jar of marmalade confiscated, because it contained more than three ounces.  As she bought this at Eataly, she was displeased.  She noticed she has her suitcase searched anytime we take off from La Guardia.

Then we noticed we were sitting on the bulkhead.  The seat belts are different, you have to pay attention to the numbers on the buckle.  Also, there is no seat to put your small bags under, therefore, you need to be able to store them in the overhead bin.

The lessons I learned flying on this trip:

 

1.  You need to read the TSA rules in detail.

2.  You need to know how the layout of a plane works.

3.  It pays to walk with a cane, as you get to board first.  Leaving the plane at your destination, you are on your own.  Oh well.

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
