How to Survive a Long Haul Flight

Is this going to be your first long flight? You must be excited or nervous or both. Regardless of how exciting the idea of flying is, a long flight can be a total drag and very exhausting. You might have the worst experience with a long haul flight. Here are some tips to help you stay comfortable during a long haul flight.

Buy Tickets at Your Earliest

Waiting to get that $20 price drop on the tickets might not necessarily be worth the trouble. Booking tickets early will give you the needed peace of mind. You are most likely to pick a perfect seat for you whether you when you book your ticket well before the day of your flight.

Invest in a Good Neck Pillow, Eye Mask, and Ear Plugs

It is hard to keep sleeping for the duration of the flight when it is a long one. Make sure you have all the good quality stuff to help you sleep soundly. A long haul care package might look perfect, but even in the best international flights, the stuff inside does not live up to your expectations. Your neck pillow can deflate easily, or your perfect sleep will be interrupted when the bands of the eye mask snap. You could even struggle to keep the earplugs from slipping down.

Wear Comfortable Clothes

You might want to look fabulous with something trendy attire to have the perfect airport look. But make sure that airport look of yours is comfy enough for the long haul flight. Dress comfortably with loose-fitting layers in which you can move around easily.

So, if that skin-tight jeans or a fitted blouse tempts you, steer away as you don’t want your blood circulation to slow down with all that tight clothing and give you vein thrombosis.


Don’t Wear Makeup

Your long haul flight isn’t going to be a beauty contest. You don’t want all that makeup to clog your pores during the long haul. Your skin will already have a lot to deal with at 30,000 feet. Your blood circulation decreases when you are so high in the air, so you want your skin to be in its perfect condition.

It is important to moisturize your skin. Dab on some serum and moisturizer before leaving for the airport. Keep both of these items and a face-wash as well. Make sure they are less than 100 ml and can pass through security. Also keep some Vaseline or chapstick to keep your lips soft.



Get up Every Few Hours

What makes people despise long flights so much? Well there is headache, swollen limbs, dehydration, and fatigue that you are very likely to experience. To avoid that, get up every few hours to keep the blood circulation going well. Stretching and walking will increase your blood flow. You can also do some exercises while sitting in your seat.

Takeaway

Make sure you have everything to help you survive the long haul flight. Don’t forget to keep pain-killers with you. Earaches and headaches are common during flights, and they can be intolerably uncomfortable. Have a safe flight.

Is this going to be your first long flight? You must be excited or nervous or both. Regardless of how exciting the idea of flying is, a long flight can be a total drag and very exhausting. You might have the worst experience with a long haul flight. Here are some tips to help you stay comfortable during a long haul flight.
