Long haul flights are sometimes unavoidable and you need to plan a bit ahead to make the journey as comfortable as possible. Here are four tips to make sure you survive a long haul flight and arrive feeling fresh.

Wear Comfortable Clothes

Wear clothes with that are not tight, not itchy and made of soft fabric. Even if you have to appear presentable for any occasion after landing, you can always change at the airport. All hell’s not gonna break loose if you travel even in lounge wear. Nobody’s looking, so chill!

Reserve A Good Seat

  • If you want to move around, pick a seat which is closer to the aisle.
  • If you want to stretch yourself and relax, pick a seat which has good leg room and can recline properly.
  • If you don’t want to stay near the children, pick seating which is in the middle of the plane.

Prepare Yourself For Good Sleep

Even if you are planning to binge watch your favourite shows or movies during a long flight, you will fall asleep invariably at some point of time. And it’s always better to be prepared to sleep properly. While pillows and blankets are usually made available in such flights, you can always carry your own neck pillow or a blanket that you can use as back support or for extra warmth.

Don’t Stuff Your Cabin Luggage

As it will be a long-haul flight, never carry too much in your cabin luggage. Only carry the essentials.
