If you already have TSI Pre-Check and want to reduce airport hassle even more, consider CLEAR. The program, currently offered at 24 airports, allows passengers through security with the touch of a fingerprint without waiting in lines.

Enrollment is easy, just fill out an online application and drop by a CLEAR enrollment center on your next trip (no appointment necessary). At $179/ year, the program is more costly than Pre-Check, but could be worth the price tag for frequent travelers to be CLEAR at supported airports.

SPIRIT AIRLINES TURKEY TROTS TO THE TOP
 

 
Analysis on October performance of North American airlines brings promising results for one bargain airline. Spirit secured the top spot for on-time arrivals last month – scoring 87.8% and pushing Delta out of its two month, first place reign. Bravo to Spirit and hope they keep up the quick pace!

AVOID THE THANKSGIVING CROWD CHAOS
   
       
  Just in time for Thanksgiving, Google Maps and Google News Lab have dropped a fun site to keep you informed of crowd traffic during the holidays. Check out your city’s most popular unique search for Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday. You’ll find the golf course is a popular Los Angeles destination on Black Friday, while Dallasites seek out stadiums and New Yorkers search ice skating rinks. So whether you want to find yourself in the middle of the hustle or strategize to miss the shoppers, you’re covered here.
