Default opening cabin safes

Just a hint for passengers that have cabin safes that need to be opened with a swipe card. Don't use your credit cards - use a card from the grocery store or an out of date card. Anything with a swipe on the back. That way you can keep your credit cards in the safe where they belong and not have to worry. We have done this for years and it works!

that is a great tip. i used a swipe card from the drug store. i am like you and did not want to use the credit card. they also suggest not too use your sail and sighn card. that is risky as well.

I've used my driver's license, too, with its magnetic strip in the back.
