The first thing to know when you are traveling is where to stand in the security line. Most people choose the lane on the right, but there are some airports that have hidden security lanes. In these cases, you can stand in the leftmost lane and have security checkpoints pass faster. Also, if you are seated on economy class, you can get through the security checkpoints with the agent sitting in a less-crowded lane.
If you are planning to travel by air for the first time, here are some tips to help you enjoy the experience. First, know which seat to choose. You might want an aisle seat, which gives you more room to move and stretch your legs. However, if you'd prefer to sit next to a window, you'll have to ask permission before you can recline. This is because you might need to use the restroom, or get your tray from the aisle. Also, if you are claustrophobic, you might not want to have your seat reclined.
The world's circumference is about forty thousand and seventy five kilometers, and it's possible to fly across the planet on a single tank of fuel. In the past, it was too expensive and difficult to justify these ultra-long flights, but advances in aircraft and new technology have changed the equation. The record-breaking flight, by Singapore Airlines, was completed on an Airbus A350-900UL in October 2018.
While traveling, one question frequently asked is, "Can I use my phone on a plane?" Most carriers allow passengers to connect to WiFi and Bluetooth in airplane mode, but there are restrictions on how you use apps. Although you can still make and receive calls, you can't send text messages or make voice calls. This is because airplane WiFi is designed to minimize disruption for other passengers. However, if you need to use your phone, you can switch to airplane mode to make calls and chat with friends.
