Flying can be stressful! I should know.  Before I worked at TheStreet (GCI - Get Report) , I worked at USA Today. The newspaper and digital media company are based in Mclean, Virginia. What's the problem, you ask? Well, for starters, I don't live in Virginia or anywhere near it. Nope,  I live in Westchester, New York.

For more than two years I packed a bag and made my way to New York's Laguardia Airport every week for about 48 weeks a year! Looking back, I really can't believe I did this. I learned to embrace and eventually enjoy it.  Why? Because I made travel easier.  I flew Delta Airlines (DAL - Get Report) nearly every week, cashing in on lots of frequent flyer miles. I also took advantage of seeing the same TSA, gate and flight attendants. Eventually, I got a lot of their tips and tricks and discovered a few of my own!

I hope this video on airport hacks eases a little of your business travel flying angst. For more tips and more great videos, be sure to follow me @JulesVideo on Twitter.
