Flying economy doesn't have to be miserable

For those willing to shell out just a little extra, several à la carte services offer experiences usually reserved for First Class passengers.

Getting through security

airport misery tsa pre check

Waiting on long lines to remove your belt, shoes and jacket can be a drag, not to mention time consuming.

But you can breeze through security with TSA Precheck, which offers faster access for frequent fliers and they are not required to remove shoes, belts, jackets or laptops. There are more than 300 locations across the country, including dozens of airports. If approved, membership lasts for five years.

There is a nonrefundable processing fee of $85 -- a small price to pay for the pleasure of not having to wait on those long lines or walk barefoot through security.
