Airport Travel Tips

Getting on a plane this summer? Airports will be crowded. Here's some tips on what to wear -- and what not to wear -- to help you get through security faster.

The transportation security administration's number one tip to get through fast: your shoes.  The best rule of thumb is to just take 'em off.  Hidden metals in clothing will subject you to a full-fledged search. And ladies, be prepared: if your underwire bra sets off the metal detector... You will be searched.

Most travelers should  remember the basics: taking out laptops... Cellphones.. Pagers... Keys... And removing belts and heavy metal jewelry.  The TSA says most passengers are cooperative, though some remain skeptical.   The best advice... take a second look in the mirror before you go.. And get there early.
