When to fly around Thanksgiving?

I'm going to be flying from Atlanta to DC around Thanksgiving, and I'm trying to figure out the least painful way to do it. Unusually, I don't actually care where I am on Thanksgiving day—I'm go to an event the following weekend. When will be less crazy at the airport? [more inside]

Please don't touch my jerky

I am flying on frontier airlines to Indianapolis in July. I won't be checking anything, just bringing a carry on bag. I was hoping to bring some vacuum sealed packs of jerky from this store with me on my carry on bag. Is this a problem? Are they going to make me open up my packages of jerky in security? I am going for a long visit and need my stuff to stay fresh so I don't want to unseal it. So basically, can I bring sealed packages of beef jerky/nuts/berries on an airplane?

Buying a pre-paid cell phone in Delhi, India

My wife is traveling to India later this month. She'll be in the mountains, where there are few landlines, but from her experience last time there is sufficient (if spotty) cell phone service. Wikitravel says: "Fully loaded prepaid starter kits are available for around Rs. 500 or less" (plus more details). Does anyone have experience buying a pre-paid mobile phone like this in India? Can she do it at the Delhi airport? Is it a hassle, or is it worth it?

This is followed by another 7-hours flight from Dubai to Singapore at 9:30 am. What should I do to pass the time? Should I even try to leave the airport and go to the city? [more inside]

Transferring between terminals at Philadelphia Airport

I'm flying into Philadelphia Airport next month. I arrive at Terminal A, and my connecting flight is 2 hours later at Terminal F. From the online map it looks like these 2 terminals are very far apart- how does one get from terminal to terminal? I have 2 hours between flights, during which time I have to get my luggage, clear customs, and check in for my connecting flight. Should I be concerned about having enough time?

Denver Airport Layover

I'll be taking a business trip in a few weeks and I have a 6 hour layover in the Denver airport. What are my options? I've heard the airport might be too far away from the city for any real excursion. Is there anything worthwhile INSIDE the airport? NEAR the airport? Or do I just need a good book and a cup of coffee?

Breaking out of Rome airport in the middle of an indirect flight?!

I am taking a trip to Japan from London, my flight is via Rome (both ways). On the way back I'd like to just get out at Rome and take another flight which I will book separately.

cable modem-->iMac-->Xbox = Fail

Hi all - I'm trying to connect my new XBox 360/Kinect wirelessly using my iMac's Airport Extreme. Airport works great with my Blu-ray player, my iPhone and various laptops that have been brought into the house, but I can't get the Xbox to connect. I've tried taking the WEP password off, and that doesn't help. I continually get the error message that the Xbox "can't obtain an IP address for your router or modem". Is this just a case of Microsoft not playing nice with Apple (or vice versa)? How can I fix this? Thanks and happy new year!

How to deal with cancelled international flights?

The Great Blizzard of Christmas 2010 has severely derailed my plans (love snow as I do). I was supposed to fly from Newark to Hong Kong on Dec. 26th at 3:30, arrive in HK at 8:30pm Dec 27th, then fly Air Asia Hong Kong-Bangkok on the morning of Dec. 28th with a connecting flight immediately following from Bangkok - Luang Prabang, Laos. Newark is supposed to get a foot plus of snow tomorrow. I am feeling a little screwed. Is anyone out there skilled at making the best of this kind of situation? I've never dealt with it before, and have spent the last eight hours trying to make something work. Details below. [more inside]

NYC Last Minute Hotel

I am at JFK waiting to fly to Bermuda. Most likely, my flight is going to be cancelled due to weather in Bermuda. In the event my flight does get cancelled, what is the best thing to do regarding finding a room for the night that isn't going to be dodgy? I have had a look at rates in Manhattan and even something as simple as the Courtyard Marriott on 3rd is going for $450 a night. Should I stay near the airport? If so, where? Do I have any leverage on such short notice? Can I just call the hotel, and say 'Hey, I need a room, if its not you, its gonna be someone else. What's the best rate you can give me?' Help me find a decent place to stay and not pay an arm and a leg in NYC.

What to do in Buffalo for 7 hours?

I'm taking the Greyhound to Buffalo Airport from Toronto on Saturday. I get in at around 10:30 AM. My plane doesn't leave until 6:00 PM. I will not have access to a car, but I only have a small messenger and a carry-on (that I'm sure can be stored somewhere at the airport) in terms of luggage. Is there anything within easy public transportation of the Buffalo airport that I could spend the day checking out, or should I prepare lots of reading material?

How do Airport body scanners work?

At one airport, the scanner always beeps if I pass through without removing my shoes. The same scanner lets my colleague pass without removing shoes. At another airport, our roles are reversed. The colleague has to remove shoes because the scanner beeps, while I pass through without any problems. Both scanners (at different airports within Australia) are the gated type, not the enclosed-chamber sorts. What is going on?
