The more you fly, the more you know that the possibility of a flight delay due to weather or a mechanical malfunction, is likely. If you experience a delay of any kind, you’ll want to have a few things in place for you and your kids so that you make the most of your time.
LOCATE FLIGHT INFORMATION
Airports are usually great at providing immediate support to those who have experienced a flight delay, whether before your first flight or a connecting flight. Attendants are usually by the gate where your plane will take off. They will be able to give you all pertinent information with regards to the status of your plane, and how long you will be waiting till the issue is resolved. You can also find your flight’s information on the flight status boards located throughout the airport. You will need your flight number which can be located on your ticket.
READING MATERIAL & ELECTRONIC DEVICES
Your kids may not be as concerned about the flight delay as you; however, they will expect to pass the time with something entertaining and engaging. So, make sure to have reading material, electronic devices for gaming,
There are a few snacks that are approved for flight travel. You’ll be able to carry them as you pass through the security terminal. These include dried fruit, pretzels and chips, or other dried food. You may also purchase food and drinks once you’ve passed through the TSA. You’ll have the option of restaurants and coffee bars. Depending on the airline, and the delay you’re experiencing, you may be entitled to a food voucher. Some airlines will pay up to an entire meal per person.
When preparing for any flight, it’s a good idea to bring some toys if you have small children. You don’t want to check all of them into the baggage department, as putting a few in your carry-on bags can be invaluable in the event of a delay. If you forget, there are some airports with play areas for children.
If you’ve made any travel arrangements or booked any hotel stays that are time sensitive, you’ll want to contact the appropriate parties to make sure that you adjust the time you will need to be picked up or arrive.
