Flying is a regular part of long-distance travel. How does one stay comfortable and presentable over a 16 hour flight? That’s what we’ll be discussing today. Stay tuned for tips and tricks to have a comfortable long-haul flight.
Neck Pillows and Eye Covers
If you’re going on a long-haul flight, these are worth their weight in gold (if they actually weighed a little heavier). Yes, we know that it may look tacky but your comfort is what we’re after. Our writers swear by using a comfortable neck pillow (not the super cheap ones). They provide extra support for your neck and shoulders that your seat certainly does not. An eye cover is for the times when you need some shuteye and you need darkness.
Your own headset
Flights often have headsets that you can rent out. However, it is important to remember that these have been used before you. If you’re comfortable using someone’s second hand thing, it would be prudent for you to bring your own headset. This will make sure that you’re the only one who uses it (a great relief of health nuts) and you’ll be sure of the quality of the sound that you get.
Bring backup battery
In the case of a long-haul flight, a power bank or two for your gadgets will really come in handy. One of the best ways to stay entertained and connected to friends and loved ones is through your mobile devices. Having a backup power source is a good way to ensure that you’ll have something to do while you’re waiting to get to your fabulous destination.
Splurge on WiFi
Save up on using your mobile data and make use of the in-flight WiFi connection. It’s a no muss, no fuss kind of thing. Why worry about the bill that’s coming your way when you can simply pay a bit for the internet usage and just sit back and enjoy the connectivity.
Never skip your beauty routine
If you have the habit of applying toners or moisturizers before your sleep, by all means, keep at it. It will give you something familiar and you’ll be assured that you’ll look fresh by the time you wake up.
Long-haul flights no longer need to be the enemy. Using the tips above, you can enjoy your flight and reach your destination is comfort and ease. We hope you have a happy landing and fabulous vacation!
