11 Tips And Tricks To Make Your Next Flight A Breeze

Man was not meant to fly, but if you insist, be smart about it.

1. Get your drink on! You can bring your own alcohol through boarding as long as it’s under the 3-ounce limit.

That means you can bring your own airline bottles of booze (as many as will fit in a ziploc baggie) and get hella turnt before your flight.


2. Get hella cheap deals on flights by shopping at the right time!

The Wall Street Journal says Tuesday and Wednesday are the best days for deals.
