Tech expert Carley Knobloch is set to share first class advice for smooth air travel - from checking in for your flight before you arrive at the airport, to logging on to the internet while in the air and more, including:
THERE’S AN APP FOR EVERYTHING: Apps are available for everything - to help you decide what outfits to pack, weigh your luggage and help to map out different businesses and restaurants in your terminal.
ALL ABOARD: Once you board your flight, inflight internet offers a variety of services beyond checking work email or updating your social media pages. They can help you keep the kids entertained and even let your ground transportation know when you’ll be arriving with a location sharing app. You can also check the weather in your final destination
GO PAPERLESS: Just say no to printing out boarding passes and those annoying, airline-provided ticket envelopes that clutter up your carry-on. Just download your boarding pass to your smartphone and you’re on your way.
