4 More Great Tips For Mega Long Flights

Thanksgiving is almost here, and I smell travel (and turkey!) in the air. I already gave you eight awesome reader tips for surviving superlong plane trips, but reader Katinedinburgh shared more tricks to staying sane when you're stuck for hours and hours in the air. Here they are:

  • Exercise: Walk occasionally up and down the aisle to keep the blood flowing, use the areas by the exits or toilets to stretch.
  • Neck Rest: Neck pillows are really handy, especially the ones with the beans instead of air. Much comfier. Travelling with a partner is best, to be honest, as they are a natural pillow.
  • Pick Your Airline: Fly airlines with decent entertainment systems. The suggestion about the laptop/DVDs is great, but a hassle to carry all that around! I would choose airlines such as Singapore, Qantas, Air New Zealand (the best) for long-haul, as their entertainment systems are fantastic.
  • Drink Water: Keep hydrated! And not with booze! You'll feel a lot better when you land if you're not getting a weird hangover feeling.
