@Earlybride:  I haven’t gotten a paper ticket in the mail… since before I can remember (I’m only 23 lol). Normally, you check in online 24 hours before your flight, and you can print out boarding passes, or you can do it at the airport. I like being prepared. You stand in line to check lugguage, you give them your passport or whatnot, then you proceed to the gate with the printed paper.

ETA: Where did you buy them from? You should have gotten an email confirm with the confirm number, usually you can sign in on the airline’s website with that number to pick seats, print your boarding pass, etc, but you can only print the pass 24 hours before or less.

Haha, no more mail tickets!  That made me giggle ;o)

I typically check in at a kiosk that is usually in the lobby.  If it’s a smaller airport, you can check in at the desk.

I don’t even know if paper tickets exist anymore outside of travel agents. Did you get an email? Almost all tickets are e-tickets now. You can check in online 24 hours to your flight, print your boarding pass, etc.

Definitely check out the new security regulations so you’re up on things. For example, the only liquids you can carry on have to be 3 oz or less, and you can only have 1 quart baggie worth of them each. Everything else has to go in your checked bag. Also, expect to take your shoes off at security, and to have to take out your laptop.

Everyone else answered your questions, but just one piece of ridiculous information: if you want paper tickets for some reason, most airlines charge something like $15-20! I just think that’s amazing.

Anyway, have fun on your honeymoon! Flying is a very different thing these days from when you were younger, so do some research beforehand like pp suggested.

95% of the places that you will go just have eTickets — whether or not travel agents book them.  Anymore, it’s usually if someone is going someplace remote with a very small airline where paper tickets are actually issued.  ETickets are so much easier!

hehe this made me giggle too!  My mom asked me the same thing recently!

You can check in 24 hours before and print your boarding pass, or just print at the airport.
