Tips to get ready for Foreign Trip
Know your airport s code
Its easy for luggage destination tags to get mixed up at a curbside check in. Learn the three letter airport code for your destination and make sure your skycap labels the bag properly. The codes are not always intuitive (for example, New Orleans s Louis Armstrong Airport is MSY), so check the list at airport-technology.com, especially if your destination has more than one airport.Cities with multiple airports can cause problems if passengers do not know which they are flying into, says Tim Wagner, a spokesperson for American Airlines.
