Keep it in Your Pocket…

Here’s a tip for travelers going through Airport Security: you are going  babe asked to empty your pockets … Everything, including wallet and car keys and passport. It all has to go in one of those plastic bins. Lots of coins? Put em in da bin. Matches? Bin em.

You also have to take off your jacket.

If you want to make your life a lot easier (not to mention faster for the people in line behind you): As you make your way to the front of the line, transfer everything from your pants pockets to the pockets of your jacket. That way when you get through you can quickly grab the jacket and go… And transfer everything back at your leisure.  It’s faster and easier for everyone involved.

Don’t have a jacket? Fine… Use a plastic (or paper) bag to achieve the same results.

Good luck and fly safe!

  1. A jacket with zippered pockets is a good idea. No matter how coordinated you think you are, you WILL accidently dump some things out of those pockets when you pick your jacket up. You will then learn that phones do not bounce and that keys are expert at sliding across the floor to some inaccessible spot. Sometimes you will find that your shoes give extra momentum to objects to help them hide. So zippers are useful.

  2. Good advice. I have been doing this myself for years.

  3. When not jacket weather, I do the same with my laptop bag.

  4. If you don’t have a jacket, have a carry-on with outside pockets and dump your stuff in there.
