We know that our diverse range of guests are no stranger to those long-haul flights, which is why we’re giving you our best secrets to surviving a long-haul flight.
The average flight time across the world is 22 hours. Now some may say half of that can be spent sleeping, but we all know too well that that just isn’t the case most of the time. Most of the time it means 22 hours of screaming children, cramped conditions, and tired eyes from fixating on the latest box office movies.
- Book your seats early
It’s as simple as this; the earlier you book, the better the chances of scoring your favourite seat.
- Sit at the back
In case the previous plan didn’t quite work out, a great alternative is the back. It is a bit noisier, sure, but you’re more likely to have a seat or two free next to you.
- Use those frequent flyer points
If not now, then never right? Why wait until the perfect opportunity pops up? Treat yourself to a first class seat when you least expect it, enjoy a spacious, noise free flight.
- Prepare for jetlag
We all know that jet lag is sure to hit one way or another, but there are some useful to tips to help settle it or avoid it altogether. Spend a few days before your flight adjusting to the time in your destination. This might been a few 7pm or 4am bed times, but you’ll be thanking yourself when you reach your destination. Making sure your flight arrives during the day is also a great way to trick your body into adjusting.
- Dress right
You’re not there to impress anyone – so don’t be afraid to put on your favourite comfy clothes. Bring layers for when it gets cold, and don’t forget pajamas!
- Stay healthy
Last but not least, stay healthy. Our bodies aren’t built to spend extended amounts of time in the air, so it’s important to avoid effects of flying such as dehydration and deep vein thrombosis. Be sure to drink water regularly, stretch, and walk around the cabin regularly.
