Johnny Jet says that when you meet people while traveling, friending them on Facebook is a great way to stay in touch.

When your flight is delayed/cancelled, you may have very little time to get to the next one. Johnny Jet says that your mobile phone is the best tool you have in that situation. Call and tweet the airline while you're in line, and if you are a club member, go there. They have a concierge that can help you. A good tool is Freebird. It's flight insurance that, should your flight get cancelled, will get you on the next available flight with a simple click and at no charge. $19 one way or $34 round trip. The price will be going up in 2017. So if youre planning on flying next year, get your tickets now.

Google Trips is another good option -- it's like TripIt.

Travel deals are coming on Cyber Monday. So check your favorite airline's site or go over to
