I need to get a plane ticket for next month but don't know much about buying them online or where to get the cheapest tickets. This will be my first time flying and being at an airport. I have no clue what to do after buying the ticket, what to do when arriving at the airport, and I will have to change planes once. I looked on cheaptickets.com and they seem to be the cheapest so far. I also notice the refundable tickets are over double the normal ones. When I get to the airport I assume I got up to a desk near the plane I'm boarding and get the ticket but what about lugage? Also when switching planes do I need to pick up my bags and take it to the next plane and how do I find out what plane I need to get on? Also do they let you take a small bag on the plane still or did they stop that? I thought about taking a small bag with my stuff to try to avoid seperating from it so it doesn't get lost. Also how are the security with digital cameras in your bags? I'm going down to visit my parents for my B-Day and want to take some pictures but don't want the security taking my camera. I don't mind them going through my bags. Camera is the only thing I'm worried about getting lost since I still have old clothes at my dad's house. Don't know what I would do without a camera to take pictures of my chickens.
