How to Survive a Long-Haul Flight

As much as we love travelling, we also dread those long haul flight trips. Being imprisoned in a long metal tube for a daunting amount of time may cause utter and complete boredom as well as stiff legs and sore backs! So we decided to look into some long-haul flight tips to help ease the boredom and back pain.

 

What to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight

What to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight

Make your long-haul flight more pleasant by being prepared. Make sure you pack these essentials to help you survive a long-haul flight.

  • Warm feet, warm body! It’s not just an old folk’s tale, feet do have a big impact on body temperature. Smartwool socks will keep your feet warm or you can use compression socks as they will also help prevent flight cankles.
  • Most planes up the AC, which is why you should always take along an extra layer for warmth like a light jacket or scarf.
  • Although sleeping on planes seem hard, it’s not impossible. Make sure you pack an eye mask, ear plugs and neck pillow.
  • Stay hydrated and bring your own protein-rich snacks that will keep you feeling full for longer. Trail mix, protein bars or nuts work well.

  • Catch up on some work by bringing your ipad or laptop. Or sync Spotify playlists to your phone for offline listening.
