 AAA OFFERS TIPS FOR SURVIVING CROWDED AIRPORTS
 DUE TO THE RECENT FARE WAR FRENZY
 ATLANTA, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- If you were one of the hundreds of thousands of people involved in the half-fare airline frenzy from May 27 to June 5, the long lines and tie-ups for airline tickets may have been just the beginning of your travel hassles.
 Now those inconveniences will be replaced by crowded airports for months to come. Following are some tips offered by AAA Auto Club South to assure that the excellent fares you received remain the values they should be.
 -- Boarding passes: Be sure to pick up your boarding pass from your
 travel agent or airline ticketing office within 21 days of
 departure date and bring your airline ticket with you.
 -- Checking in: Airplanes will be full. Plan to be at the
 departure gate, checked in and waiting, one full hour before your
 plane leaves. Verify your seat with the agent at the gate, and
 be prepared to board as soon as the flight is called.
 -- Parking: Just as planes will be full, parking lots will be
 jammed. Build in extra time for parking, curbside check-in,
 baggage-handling (well-identified) and gathering children.
 -- Carry-ons: Limit carry-ons to two totes that fit under the seat
 in front of you or in the overhead compartment. Because of a
 greater possibility of lost baggage, carry your immediate needs
 -- medications and toiletries -- in those carry-ons.
 -- Special requests: Call in advance and build in extra time if you
 or someone in your party requires a wheelchair or other special
 needs.
 -- Car rental and hotel reservations: Heavy airline traffic always
 means that more people will be renting cars and making hotel
 reservations. Call ahead to make plans for your destination.
 -- Children: More people than ever booked seats for their entire
 families. Please be aware of the special needs of little ones.
 Plan plenty of activities for them during the added waiting
 times.
 -- Be prepared: Things just won't be normal for a couple of months.
 Take a deep breath and prepare for delays at the airport, on the
 runways and in the skies. As long as you're prepared, you're
 bound to have a wonderful time.
