10 Insider travel tips from an ex airline employee

1. Never join the TSA Security queue with children in it, Go for the one with the business men or women in line. It will move much quicker.

2. Never were flip flops or open toe shoes on an airplane, I used to work for an airline and we were told never to wear sandals on board an aircraft. In the unlikely event of an emergency, it’s best to have a good set of sturdy shoes that will protect your feet from heat or sharp objects.

3. Bring earplugs or noise canceling headphones. If silence is golden, then ear plugs are worth their weight in platinum. Being able to sleep in a noisy plane or hotel room is a valuable skill.

4. Arriving early to the airport means leaving early to get to the airport. We have found that passengers under estimate all the things that can go wrong in the commute to the airport. Why just the other day a motorcyclist ran out of gas in the HOV lane on Route 93 in Boston and it took an extra 45 minutes for the State Police to get him fuel, but by that time the damage had been done to the commute.  Ground transportation delays are now a normal part of our every day travels and it does not matter what time you start your commute.

5. Get to your gateway city as early as you can. “Since delays stack up as the day progresses, it’s smart to book the first flight you can into a hub [if you have a connecting flight],”

6. Know your airport’s code. It’s 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 that your skycap labels the bag properly.

7. Call for help. If you’ve missed a connection, don’t stand in line to rebook with a gate agent. Instead, use your cell phone to call the airline’s customer-service number (tuck it in your wallet before leaving). You may speak to someone faster, giving you a better shot at a seat on the next flight.

8. Bring snacks with you because airlines are cutting down on giving passengers food and drink, so its wise to have a stash of food or energy bars with you.

9. If your flight is overbooked, don’t accept the first voucher that comes your way. Airlines typically increase their offer until there are enough volunteers willing to give up their seats. If the airline bumps you involuntarily, insist on cash compensation instead of a voucher.

10. If your a nervous traveler, always book a morning flight. The heating of the ground later causes bumpier air, and it’s much more likely to thunderstorm in the afternoon.

Bristol Coach & Limousine Honored by Family Business Association 2019

Norton, Mass. — Chauffeured ground transportation provider Bristol Coach & Limousine recently announced that they have been named 2019 First Generation Business of the Year by the Family Business Association (FBA). The company received the award on Thursday, May 16, at the FBA Awards Gala held at the Needham Sheraton.

Founded in 1996 by CEO John Cacaccio, Bristol Coach & Limousine is a family-owned and operated company that services Bristol County and the surrounding areas with a 10-vehicle fleet that includes sedans, limousines, and vans. In addition to the nine chauffeurs on staff, Cacaccio points out that each member of the family plays a vital role within the company.

“I do sales, service, and answer the phones. My wife Libby does reservations and dispatch, while my sons Frank, Joe, and Johnny all pitch in with detailing, gassing up cars, and performing airport runs,” he says.

The annual FBA Awards are envisioned as a way to celebrate and recognize the successes of New England’s many family-owned businesses. From those just starting out to businesses that span multi-generations, the awards recognize the determination necessary to launch and build a business with family, and to keep that legacy going through subsequent generations.

“We’ve been in the running for the FBA a number of years, and at one point I considered giving up,” says Caccacio. “Then we got a call from the FBA that said we were a finalist, and they wanted to come down to do an on-camera in-person interview. I got the family together and answered questions about our service and how we give back. We support the schools, the fire dept, and do work with Make a Wish.”

Cacaccio is proud to add the FBA award to the company’s honors. From 2010-2018, Coach & Limousine was named Best Limousine Service in the Sun Chronicle Newspaper Reader’s Choice Awards.
