In the United States, tipping is generally not expected for flight attendants and is pretty rare. If you receive exceptional service, such as never having your glass less than full in the first class cabin, or a flight attendant going out of their way you could offer a tip as gratitude. Find out the details on Should You Tip Flight Attendantswhere one Southwest Airlines flight attendant shares insight.

TSA PreCheck lines may be shorter now thanks to the “PreCheck is PreCheck Act of 2018”, which will ensure only  travelers who are members of a trusted traveler program are permitted to use TSA PreCheck. How often do you go through PreCheck and see the person in front of you taking out their laptop and shoes – a clear sign they’re not a member. See the details: Why TSA PreCheck Lines Should be Shorter Now.
