What You Need To Know Air Travel Tips from the Captain


What You Need To Know: Air Travel Tips from the Captain: a blog about air travel and travel in general.

If you want to reduce your carbon footprint, then it is a good idea to reduce the amount of air travel that you do. But for most people, this isn’t going to be easy. In fact, for many of us, we can’t just eliminate all of our air travel.

Now I don’t know about you, but I love to travel. I love seeing new places and trying new things. That is one thing that I can never get enough of. Now I know that there are many people out there who would like to reduce their carbon footprint but they aren’t sure how they can do this without having to eliminate all of their air travel.

Well the good news is that you don’t have to give up all of your air travel in order to reduce your carbon footprint. Here are some tips on how you can reduce your carbon footprint while still being able to enjoy traveling by air:

It is a great privilege to be a pilot. I am honored that you trust me to get you safely to your destination. You can enjoy and feel safer about air travel if you understand what pilots know. Let me share some things I’ve learned in my career.

If the captain has made an announcement, sit down and fasten your seatbelt. (That’s only if you are seated.) The captain is not merely being polite.

We begin our descent approximately twenty minutes before landing, unless we’re holding for weather or traffic, then it could be much longer. We fly the approach at about 250 knots (287 mph) until we are on short final when we slow to a speed of about 170 knots (196 mph).

After touchdown our target taxi speed is 20 knots (23 mph) but we may taxi faster or slower depending on aircraft weight, wind conditions and airport congestion.

When traveling, no matter how many times you fly, there are a few things that you need to know. When I first started flying I didn’t know what to do and everything was new to me. But with time I learned what to do and now I’m going to share some tips with you.

First of all, don’t be afraid of flying. Airplanes are the safest way to travel and the chances of something happening to your flight is about one in a million. You have a much higher chance of winning the lottery than being in an airplane accident.

Secondly, when it comes time to check in for your flight make sure you get there early enough so that you don’t have any problems checking in and boarding the plane. Usually two hours before departure is good enough if you’re flying domestically but if you’re flying internationally then three hours is best just because there are usually more people traveling at those times and there tends to be more delays at security checkpoints so it’s better to be safe than sorry.

A couple of weeks ago, I was on a flight from my home airport of Seattle to Denver. The flight was not full, but there were still several passengers who had to gate check their luggage because the overhead bins were full.

Near the end of the flight, as we were taxiing in, a passenger got up from his seat and approached the Flight Attendant (FA) working First Class. The passenger was quite upset that his bag had been gate checked, and he expressed this to the FA loudly enough for many of us in Coach to hear.

The FA tried to explain that the overhead bins were full and there was no other option for the bags. This did not calm the passenger. “You need to get me my bag,” he demanded of the FA. “I am in a hurry.”

“We’ll have it at baggage claim,” replied the FA, who then went back to her duties.

The man continued standing near his seat and complaining loudly about how we couldn’t be expected to wait for our bags at baggage claim when it took so long for them to get there and besides he was late for a meeting, etc., etc.

Another FA came over and told him he needed to return to his seat because we were getting ready to disembark

Hello everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Today’s post will be a little different than usual, as it is going to serve as a database of sorts. I am going to compile a list of all the tips I have on air travel. These tips range from how to avoid jet lag to how to dress appropriately for flying in different situations. If you are looking for a specific tip, simply use ctrl + f (command + f on mac) on your keyboard and type in the search bar that pops up whatever you’re looking for. I hope you enjoy this post and find it helpful!

1. Dress Appropriately:

If you are flying economy class, dress comfortably because there is always a chance you could get bumped up to first class. If my plane is overbooked, I always put on a nice shirt and nice pants, even if it means putting them on over my pajamas. I’ve gotten bumped up to first class before because of this!

If you are flying first class and want to look good when you board the plane, pack a change of clothes in your carry-on luggage so you can change after take-off and before landing (or whenever).

If you are flying during winter months or if the plane is

1. Know the Rules

2. Pack Light

3. Bring a Book

4. Plan Ahead

5. Be Polite

6. Be Patient

7. Be Prepared

8. Be Safe

EMERGENCY LANDING: If the Captain has made an announcement asking you to prepare for an emergency landing, please remain seated with your seatbelt fastened. Place your head between your knees and cover the back of your head with your hands.

If you are in a window seat, DO NOT try to open the window. This will not help you to breathe.

If you are flying in a Boeing 747, there is no need to worry about running out of oxygen. There is plenty of air for everyone onboard for the entire flight, even if a few passengers may have to share an oxygen mask.

DO NOT attempt to open the airplane door during an emergency landing. There is more than enough oxygen inside the cabin and opening the door would allow all that oxygen to escape into thin air outside the aircraft. If there is insufficient oxygen inside the cabin, it could be very dangerous for those passengers who do not have masks on as they would then be exposed to harmful gases at high altitudes.

DO NOT take this opportunity to smoke as this will cause a drop in cabin pressure and may result in a decompression of the aircraft
