I flew out of Chicago (ORD) at 9:50 pm on July 24. My family being the paranoid people they are, I got to the airport about 4 hours early.
You can see that, even though it is summer, I am wearing pants, boots, and have a heavy sweatshirt with me. This was all part of my packing strategy. Those boots are the heaviest pair of shoes I have. They are easy to slip off for security checks too.
Overall, the flight went well, everything was on time, and I have arrived to Germany safely! I will write about my flight in the DreamLiner 787 in the next blog post. It was pretty cool.
Do you have a specific packing system? And are you strategic about what you wear to the airport?
