Last year, I was able to make it to Cuba before the US eased travel restrictions and airlines flying US-Cuba routes started hitting the news. In today’s blog, I’m going to explore some of the ways you’ll be able to get to Cuba more easily from the US. US Airlines are all competing for some of the hottest routes out there right now, and consumers always win with airline competition (as explained here). Even though these are still charter flights (e.g. Visa restrictions apply), they will be open to the general public soon. Thanks to the guy sitting next to me on the Frontier flight I took from SNA to DEN last week for the blog idea!

A few weeks ago, we featured some TSA hacks in our monthly newsletter. We got a lot of great feedback and decided to turn those brief TSA hacks into an entire post.
Before we get in to the TSA hacks and how you can save time going through security at the airport, we wanted to first examine some of the business issues causing the delays.
Over the past few months, I’ve been getting to know about the best Orange County layover for killing time if you’ve flown in to LAX, or SNA. My boyfriend, Dave, got a killer job opportunity in Southern California, and as a result decided to relocate to the Los Angeles/Orange County area. May and June so far have been whirlwind months trying to get him moved out there from Denver and settled, and then also starting the long-distance relationship thing since I’m still based in Denver. #Jetsetter
Since my boyfriend recently moved to Dana Point, CA, I’ve been visiting the John Wayne Airport (airport IATA code SNA) in Orange County more than normal. I’m starting to get the hang of this small, upgraded, easy to navigate, not crowded regional airport, and wanted to share my #layovertips and airport hacks with our tripchi airport app readers. The John Wayne Airport website leaves a little to be desired as far as design goes, but they at least have done a good job organizing the data, and you can easily navigate to Airport Maps, Shopping, and Dining to check out the up to date passenger service offerings. The concessions at the John Wayne Airport are managed by JWA Concessions, a smaller outfit in airport retail and localized to that airport only.
