It may be fastest to fly, but it’s certainly not less complicated these days. Here are our top 10 flying tips, reminders, and warnings:

1. Visit http://www.tsa.gov for travel security news and updates. You can also use this web site to check security waitpoint times the day before you leave, and to check the status of your flight before departing for the airport. Speaking of web sites, we also suggest you use online check-in if it is offered by your airline, which most now do. Some airlines are offer an “e-boarding pass” which is sent to your mobile device—you just bring it up on your cell phone and show it at the security checkpoint (but still print your pass as a backup).

2. Be aware that many airlines charge extra fees for baggage and certain seats, and that you may get a discount if you pre-pay these.

3. Pick up a meal and drinks for the flight after you pass through security, as most domestic flights have discontinued meal service.

4. Pack sharp or potentially dangerous items in checked luggage (or just leave them at home). This includes pocket knives and sport sticks. Cigarette lighters, scissors with blades under 4” and nail clippers without knives are allowed. For details, visit http://www.tsa.gov.

5. Remember the 3-1-1 rule for liquids/gels in carry-ons: They must be in 3.4 oz. or less bottle(s), all in 1 quart-sized, clear, zip-top bag, and 1 bag per person, placed in a screening bin. Limit your carry-ons to one bag and one personal item (e.g., purse)., though note that medical devices (like a CPAP) are not counted in the limit for carry-on items.

6. Keep your luggage unlocked for inspections to avoid damage. Or buy TSA-approved luggage locks at any retail store—they are typically the same price as regular locks.

7. Plan to arrive at the airport at least two hours prior to departure. Add an extra 30–45 minutes if you are dropping off a rental car (and don’t forget to fuel it up to avoid hefty charges).

8. Curbside check-in may be available (fees may apply), but you may need to obtain a boarding pass from your airline’s desk anyway.

9. E-ticket holders should bring a confirmation and/or boarding pass. If you don’t have one, print it from your airline’s web site (your hotel’s front desk should also be able to print boarding passes within 24 hours of departure).

10. Keep your photo ID handy
