Things to consider in booking your flight

Where do you want to leave from

How early or late do you want to leave

Give yourself plenty of time between flights (one hour ++++)

engr 4060 italy8

ENGR 4060 Italy

Will there be changes….Probably

Just go with the flow, ask questions, do what they tell you, and PAY ATTENTION

Get there early (2 hours is early enough)

Check in at the ticket counter

International flight passengers generally cannot use the self check-in machines. Talk to the attendant at the counter

Documentation you will need at the airport…

Credit card

Driver’s license


Keep these handy until you get through security, then keep you boarding pass handy

Some cash for snacks

Something to read or do, there’s lots of waiting time

engr 4060 italy9

ENGR 4060 Italy

To take on board

2 carry-ons, 22” x 14” x 9” (one for the overhead and one must go under the seat in front of you)… 1 carry-on is better if possible

Pack in one carry-on

a couple days of clothes (underwear, etc.) in case luggage is lost or delayed

Medicines (prescription and OTC)

Pack in other carry-on

On-board things…electronics, cameras, phones, snacks, inflatable pillow, book, ear plugs, eye shades

You will need to sleep during the trip over the Atlantic so that time transition is easier.

engr 4060 italy10

ENGR 4060 Italy

To take on board

Liquids, pastes, gels in 3 oz. bottles all in 1 quart size Ziploc bag (1 bag per person)

Have it handy to take out at security

What can you take: http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/prohibited/permitted-prohibited-items.shtm

engr 4060 italy11

ENGR 4060 Italy

Luggage to check

Everything that you don’t absolutely need on board during the flight

Can check 2 bags

Each bag must weight less than 55 lbs.

Each bag must have a luggage tag

Locks must be TSA approved locks

Pack so you can carry your own luggage

Wheels are wonderful!!!

Note: Always good to pack a photocopy of passport inside of each bag that is checked - write address of where staying on back (date it as well). Include US return address on back.

engr 4060 italy12

ENGR 4060 Italy

What NOT to pack in the checked luggage:

Your passport

Any personal ID

Computers or electronics, phone, PDA, iPOD, etc

Valuables, check book, credit cards, identification other than passport copy

Delicate breakable items

engr 4060 italy13

ENGR 4060 Italy

What to take:

A set of underwear and socks for each day

Three sets of durable pants/shirts/blouses suitable for plant visits, museums, etc

One set of better clothes for meeting other professionals

One light jacket

One sweater of sweat shirt

One pair of good walking shoes

One pair of light weight casual shoes

One light rain jacket or poncho (optional)

Note: Select sets that can be used throughout the day - visits during the day as well as out at night - packing extra evening clothes may not be the best idea

less is better…an hour or two at a laundromat halfway through is a good thing to do/plan on. -- Some folks pack a plastic bag filled with styrofoam 'peanuts' to assure soft sided luggage is filled/tight (less damage) and this assures room for souvenirs, etc on return trip.
