Tips for air travelers

        • With Delta Air Lines and Comair both canceling a higher than normal number of flights because of labor trouble, call as far ahead as possible. If your flight has been canceled, stay on the line with the representative and get alternates as soon as possible before they fill up.

        • Leave a guaranteed contact number with the airline, in case of an early cancellation. Airline officials say many passengers leave the number of their travel agency, which can be closed on weekends.

        • Leave early. With 400 short-term parking spaces out of commission at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport because of construction, there will be a crush next to the terminal that will overflow to long-term parking.

        • Check the weather at the destination city before leaving. Call the airline (Delta's number is 800-241-4141 and Comair's is 800-221-1212) if there are questions about a flight.

        • Those making connections in other cities should make copies of that airport's entire schedule in case a flight is missed.

        • If a flight is canceled while you're at the airport, try to avoid the customer service line by calling the airline or travel agent directly.
