First time traveler advice

A reader and first time flyer asked about the baggage reclaim process. 

My advice: Make a beeline for the luggage carousel. 

Don’t waste time visiting the bathroom or shopping for magazines. Instead, go straight to the luggage carousel to make sure you are the first to your baggage.
