There is no doubt that traveling opens our minds and eyes to new cultures, new people and landscapes. It means travelling to new places is always a great fun but you have to go through long flights. If you are running with short budget and cannot afford to first or business class, here are some tips to help you how to survive a long flight.

  • Buy the right airline ticket to enjoy all the comforts during a long flight. There are few flights offering excellent amenities during long flight like wine, slippers, eye masks, personal TV etc. There are other facilities also, go with the international flight. Don’t forget to calculate total travelling hours when booking for flight tickets.
  • Just because you cannot book the flight tickets for business class, it does not mean you cannot enjoy all the facilities in economy class like sleeping pillows, eye masks, slippers etc. These facilities are mandatory during a long flight. It can also be taken as long flight kit. These comfortable items don’t take much space and will help you bear up the long flight.
  • I will advise you to reach at the booking counter four hours earlier and request for the exit row. If you are taking exit row then you should be ready to help in case of emergency and it is closest to emergency door. In case, you are tall and happy to help then exit row will work best for you.
  • If you are planning to take sleep aid during long flight then please try the sleep aid at your home once. In case, it has any adverse reaction then you don’t have to face it at 30,000 feet. I will advice you not to take any sleep aid when you are in the air. In case, your flight stops in between then it would be hard time for you to awake.
  • Never underestimate the power of movies, music and books during a long flight. Few airlines offer entertainment facility for their passengers. Personal television is also provided to enjoy movies and music. You can check all these details prior making any final booking. We will advise you to load plenty of music files and movies into your laptop before leaving from your home.
  • Few people are confused either they should work or nor during long flights. It would be great if you can occupy yourself in other things like entertainment and communication. Work can make your trip even more boring. At the end, the choice is yours.
  • Don’t forget to follow your body instincts. If you are feeling tired then you are advised to take proper rest.
