5 Questions of Paramount Importance

When booking your flight there are five questions you should have in the back of your mind to ensure the best possible flying experience. Read on for more nuggets of Above the Clouds info. 

1.What time does the flight depart?
Beware of lights that leave at night. They are often cheaper but often go very early in the morning. If you have a long drive ahead of you to get to the airport, it may be beneficial to book nearby accommodation so that you are well rested before your departure.

2.When does the flight arrive?
A simple question that can have a huge bearing on your well-being on arrival. Flights that get you to your destination whilst it's still bright outside can help to keep your body-clock in sync with your new destination.

3.How much luggage can I check in?
Most airlines operate within a 20kg allowance for baggage. If you go over this limit you will often incur an additional charge.

4.How much hand luggage can I carry on-board?
You will find that some airlines restrict you on the size and weight of baggage that can be carried on board and you may be penalised for baggage that does not meet the specifications. Always stick to the 'one bag rule'.

5.Do I need to reconfirm my flight on the way back?
Many flights ask you to reconfirm on the return leg of your flight. This is a vital aspect of your flight that youshould know beforehand.
