2. Are there any tricks to getting a cheaper plane ticket online? Like when I buy it, where, or what day of the week I go? Classes start October 1st, but I need to get there before then (I sent an email to the International Programs Center asking what was the best day, but they haven
t answered.) Am I better off buying one round trip ticket now, or buying the return ticket closer to when I leave for home, in case I want to travel a bit after the semester ends?
3. It's going to be one long-ass flight. What should I do to pass the time? I know you can't have cell phones on planes, but would my DS or laptop be okay? I've never flown before my entire life, and I would look it up at the airline's website if I could but I can't because I don't know what airline I'm using. I'd just not go to sleep the night before and sleep the majority of the time, but I might be too terrified the thing'll fall out of the sky to do that. Or there might be a screamy-ass baby and a parent too lazy to quiet it, or whatever.
