Grateful for Gate Passes

Uploaded: Jun 23, 2015
Luckily my first time flying alone with two kids went pretty smoothly. However, I feel silly for not making the experience easier on myself. On my return flight to California I learned about gate passes. I didn't need to go through security and wait at the gate alone, my parents could join me up until I boarded the plane. They just needed to receive gate passes.

My return flight ended up being 3 hours delayed and my parents helped me out immensely. I'm sure that our flight back would have been a completely different experience without their help at the airport.

Have you used gate passes when traveling with kids on your own? Did you find it helpful?
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
