Billings Airport Etiquette for the Holiday Season
Bless the Billings Airport employees and all their patience they have with people who just don't know courteousness. Or maybe people don't travel that often out of Billings.
Be prepared before you travel for Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you're flying, here are some tips on how to make the process nice and smooth.
Arrive at least 1.5 hours early to Billings airport for your flight.
This is crucial because if you are late, you could miss your flight and it becomes a nightmare.
Have your I.D. and airline ticket ready for TSA Billings employees.
Wear shoes you can slip on and off and be ready to throw them in the bins along with your electronics. People who choose these insane laced up boots, fancy shoes, etc. hold up the line.
Know your weight limits with carry-ons and checked bags. There’s always that one person who has cosmetics, liquids, etc. that exceed the limit. They also usually have to be stored in a zip-lock bag.
Do not crowd the boarding gates in Billings airport. If you’re boarding class C just wait your turn.
Overcrowding the gates leads to anxiety and chaotic energy for most people.
Do not overcrowd the overhead bins in the plane.
This means boarding class A people do not take up the bins at the front. You put your bag above wherever you’re sitting, this is common sense. And makes it smoother for everyone else.
If you’re flying with food, make sure it’s stored properly. Pies, turkey, sides, etc. must be sealed tightly.
