Gating Factor

Check the departure gate, and then GO there and confirm it, and leave plenty of time to do it. 

I had one gate listed on my boarding pass (no one should believe that one), then another on the screen – different concourse – and then a third that was the Truth.  So this all takes time.  Find it first, then hang out.

Years ago I also learned  (OK, twice) that you have to be at the actual gate, not the next number.  Because the distance between Gate 25 and Gate 26 can be a tram.

What travel lessons have you learned, by doing it right or the hard way?  Post a comment here.
