I have spent many hours in the air in what would be considered long-haul flights. Learning how to be organized and prepared for long 旅行 is crucial on how successful 您r flight will be. Are 您 wondering how to get through a long flight? I fly economy and for some, this can be painful. I feel well versed in how to survive these flights and I’m here to help!
Do 您 get excited to fly? I do! Because I know that I am going to end up somewhere fun!
If 您 can figure out how to alleviate all those, then 您’ve got this! I want to be 自在！
Before 您r flight get organized.
Check to see if 您r flight has 机上娱乐 because some airlines have very basic 机上娱乐 or none at all. Most planes do have it but If 您r flight doesn’t, figure out what 您 need to entertain 您rself and possibly 您r 孩子们.
下载 any movies, music, books (e-readers) etc that 您 want to watch, listen or read while on the plane. Do not depend on airport internet or the airplane internet to download large files.
Make sure all 您r electronics are 充满电 before getting on the plane. Some airlines offer a power outlet or USB port at their seats, but not all planes have power sources at the seats. So just be prepared. I bring a phone charger and laptop charger with me on the plane. Also, if 您 have a layover somewhere it is nice to have 您r laptop power charger.
购买零食 喜爱并会帮助您度过一段难关。对我来说，我真的很喜欢吃零食，这是我该吃我想要的东西的时候了！尽量远离咸食。巧克力，饼干，奶酪，杏仁，硬糖，口香糖，干果是我带来的一些零食。长途飞行会让您满意吗？如果我’饿了，我有点胡思乱想。飞机上的食物从来没有让我感到满足，除了我很少享受食物。因此，我依靠自己带来美食和食物，这使我得以飞行。没有什么比高食物好！ 没有饥饿 为了我。
预留好座位。 Are 您 a window person (you get views and most importantly for me – 您 get something to lean on), or are 您 an aisle person (for easy access to the bathroom)?
尝试 预订航班 早上到达。我们主要在可能的时候这样做。当我们到达目的地时，我们会在整整一小时的酒店/ Airbnb放下行李，并全天供电，并在当晚获得良好的睡眠。我们到达时不打a。我们那天晚上很早就睡觉了，这真是令人惊讶，我们在减少时差反应方面做得很好。
穿着舒适。 As 您 know, layers are the best way to fly. If the plane gets hot or cold this will help 您 survive. I wear comfortable pants (usually leggings), a loose shirt, slip-on shoes, and a warm sweater.
您永远不会知道我在衣服下面系上安全带。它’非常舒适，可以握住我的手机，钱，护照或任何我需要的东西。经过安检后，我将手机放在旅行带中。它’s a great way to have 您r phone close-by and always on 您! I wear this 旅行 belt whenever I 旅行 and it’s good for preventing theft. No one knows 您 are wearing it.
如何 对抗无聊! You know what works best for 您. For me, reading a book and watching a movie easily helps me from being bored. What would 您 enjoy? Maybe perusing a magazine, working on a crossword puzzle, sudoku, listen to music, sketchbook, write in a journal, listen to a podcast, or how about editing images/videos on 您r computer.
消毒一切 您’ll be touching with disinfectant wipes! I don’t bring the entire package of disinfectant wipes. I take a few and put them in a little sandwich bag. Make sure to wipe the seat pocket which is known to be a germ collector.
我把我需要的一切–零食，卫生用品等，颜色鲜艳 小袋子 在座位的口袋里。然后，我将随身行李放在我脚前下方座位附近的脚下。我不想一直把我需要的一切都塞进包里。我也将水壶放在座袋中。
保持水分. A great way to avoid jet lag is to stay well hydrated. Stay away from coffee and alcohol. Both those drinks will dehydrate the body. Not drinking and retaining enough water can certainly make 您 feel fatigue, so be careful! I always bring my empty water bottle through security and fill up at the water station after going through security. I also bring herbal tea with me. It’s easy to get a cup of hot water from a flight attendant.
If 您 don’t know this already, the free 头戴式耳机 您’re given on airplanes suck. How do I know this? Well, I used them for years not caring too much about quality 头戴式耳机 until one day I was on a flight and couldn’t hear the dialog well of a quality movie. I asked my husband to borrow his 头戴式耳机 for a minute and I couldn’t believe the difference in my hearing the dialog and not hearing it. It was a NIGHT and DAY difference! So 您 can guess what my Christmas present was a couple of months later ; ) Be sure to bring along 您r own 头戴式耳机! I have 消除噪音的大玻色 的-我爱他们！我为父母的长途航班购买了一些耳机，费用为 $ 60-70范围. I will have to update this and let 您 know how well they work.
我带来一条毛毯！是的，我总是带这个 旅行毯 在每一次长途飞行中。很高兴知道我赢了’不要在飞机上受冻，我可以温暖而舒适地入睡。一个旅行袋使它整齐紧凑。
Do 您 know what helps me get better quality sleep? An 眼罩！它没有’如果我的同伴想在凌晨3:00读书或看电影，请打扰我’早上钟。因为我不’戴着口罩看不到任何东西。
我带来了 一双额外的袜子 使我的脚保持温暖。这是必须的。我讨厌冷脚。
减轻疲劳! I know what works best for my body to try and sleep. I do quite well and feel refreshed after a flight. Pay attention to all my tips to see what works best for 您. The best tips for me that helps me sleep is my blankie, 颈枕, and 眼罩. I sleep pretty well considering I’m in economy.
Get up from 您r seat every couple hours and take 散步 并做一些伸展运动。
I hope some of my tips help 您 figure out how to survive a long flight on a plane. I really appreciate and enjoy watching movies and reading. Sometimes not having an assignment due and just chillin’在飞机上是好的。我可以’t say I always felt this way about flying. But over the years I have gotten myself organized and prepared! If 您 do this, 您’我会发现长途飞行还不错。我实际上放松和享受自己– knowing I’很快就会到某个很棒的地方。旅行愉快！
