3. Avoid Getting Bumped Off A Flight
Make sure to not only check in early (the night before) but also get to the airport early, says Buckneberg. You’ll have enough time to find your gate, make any necessary changes and go through security. Remember to check in 30 minutes prior for domestic flights and one hour prior for international flight.
If the gate agent calls for volunteers to be moved to another flight, and you have the time, Buckneberg says do it! You can get some amazing perks like a credit voucher for your next flight, an upgrade to first class, free meals, or other bonuses.
