Traveler's Notes . . .

June 29, 1997

As of this month United Airlines passengers on domestic flights must arrive at the gate 20 minutes, rather than 10 minutes, before departure time to retain their pre-assigned seat. Later boarding is still possible if they have reservations, providing any seats are still available, a United spokeswoman said. The change was made to aid on-time departures, she added. The comparable cut-off for international flights remains 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the destination. . . . . Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay, Fla., on July 4 will become the latest theme park to open an Africa-themed exhibit. The 15-acre "Edge of Africa" promises glimpses of hippos, lions, baboons and crocodiles to visiting "expeditioners" on a research safari. Visitors may also get to feed giraffes. Information: (813) 987-5082. . . . India's culture is celebrated through paintings, sculpture, photography and displays of 30 saris at "India: A Celebration," through Sept. 28 at the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco. Information: (415) 379-8801.
