How to survive a long flight abroad

You are going abroad on a long holiday. But the flight is long and daunting. How do you survive this long flight? You need to make sure that you consider a couple of things before your flight starts.

There are a couple of things that you can do, to ensure that you are surviving your long flight. 

Wear comfortable clothes. 

Remember to wear comfortable clothing. You don’t want to fly with formal clothing that will leave you uncomfortable for hours on end. Wear loose shirt and sweatpants if possible. Or maybe some shorts and a loose blouse if you are going to a warm destination. And, take something warm with you. 

With your shoes, you should not consider wearing heels, wear something light and comfortable. Remember that people don’t like it when people are barefoot on the plane. It is known to be rude. Ladies can be their hair in a messy bun. 

Pack a travel pillow and a light blanket

Get yourself a travel pillow and make sure that you find one that is comfortable for you. You can also bring light and a small blanket. Yes, they do provide blankets on board, but how do you know if this is really clean blankets. It is better to bring your own.

This will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible if you are flying overnight.  

Take earphones with you 

Make sure you pack your earphones so that you don’t disturb other people. You don’t want other people to hear what you are watching or listen to music that you listen to. You should just consider taking more than one pair. You’ll never know when these small earphones break on you on the flight. 

Some airplanes provide earphones, but this isn’t guaranteed. So, it is much safer to bring your own to be on the safe side. 

 Bring snacks and water 

On a long flight, you will get hungry to bring some snacks to eat. But you should have snacks that will last you throughout the whole flight. Drink a lot of water and maybe a soda or two.

Some airlines provide food and snacks and some airlines have to pay for the food. You need to make sure with the airline before you board the flight. This is to ensure that you know if you should have cash on you, or not.

Now, you will know how to survive your long flight abroad, before you are able to enjoy your long holiday. Just remember these, and the flight will not feel as long as what you might have thought.
