Tom Stuker, the world’s most frequent flyer, has flown more than 20,000,000 miles on United Airlines alone — a figure I’m now even less likely to ever approach. Tom’s a flying machine, though, and naturally that means he’s come up with some pretty solid tips to help improve his travel experience — and now yours.

Tom’s latest tip has to do with elevating your layover experience. While he’s clearly hanging out at United’s Polaris Lounge in San Francisco (SFO), many of the world’s top airport lounges offer similar amenities, including quiet rooms and spots designated for taking a nap.

Some require getting your name on a waitlist, so if you’re hoping to land a semi-private hideaway to catch some zzz’s, be sure to head straight there when you arrive, so you can register and get a call when it’s snooze time.
