How to Enjoy Your Flight and Still Be a Cheapo

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 7, 2008) - Just when it seemed like there was nothing left to enjoy about air travel, sought the advice of their loyal customers to find out how they make flying fun and comfortable:

1.    Act like a toddler. Bring a "blankie" and small, inflatable pillow
      and wake up rested at your destination.
2.    Be like a camel. Bring an empty water bottle through security and
      fill it up at a water fountain near your gate.
3.    Make your seatmates jealous. Don't pay $5 for stale bread and cheese.
      Pack a turkey wrap with fresh cheese, avocado and yummy sides. Fresh
      popcorn, pitas with hummus... or even your favorite chocolate bar.
4.    You shouldn't have to amuse yourself... but you kinda have to. Bring
      your own headphones to watch the in-board movie or listen to music.
5.    Use your luggage as a workout. If you have to pay $25 to check your
      bag, get your money's worth. Before checking the bag, use it for arm
      raises or use it to hold an impromptu step class. $25 is much cheaper
      than paying for a personal training session.
