A long flight like that make sure once you get through security buy a bottle of water. Have everything packed so you can get to it as you walk up in line to security. Make sure things are already out of your pocket and in your backpack or wife's purse. The only time I suggest walking with your shoes untied (which you untie while waiting in line), if you do that...Just do what TSA tells you...and you should be fine...Ask your flight attendant if they now what gate your next flight is leaving from, some airlines will do that. If not as soon as you get off look for the screens and proceed to the next flight.
