How to survive a long haul flight

Flying is often seen as a chore rather than as part of a holiday, especially when you are flying for many hours, so we have put together some tips for how to survive a long haul flight to make his part of your trip more enjoyable.


Choose your airline wisely

When you are going to be sitting on a plane for a long time you really want to make sure that it's going to be a comfortable experience. Even though you may be booking your flights with a budget in mind it is a good idea to book the best airline that you can afford.

Take a look at the airlines that are on offer to you and research them to see which you'd prefer to use, then try to book your flights as early as possible to get the best price.


Pack a survival kit

There are things that you can take on your long haul flight with you which will help you to have a more enjoyable experience. These include moisturiser and lip balm to combat dry skin, face wipes for a refreshing cleanse, and earplugs for when you want some peace and quiet.

In addition to this, take some cosy and comfortable loungewear with you which you can change into when you plan to sleep, this will help you to relax and ensure you won't get cold too.


Treat yourself to an upgrade

The final way to survive a long haul flight is to upgrade your seats, although this tip is of course dependant on your budget. However, if you can stretch to buying a seat with a few perks this will definitely make your time in the sky feel like part of your holiday.

You will be able to expect additions like extra legroom, menus for your meals, and possibly a lie flat chair so you can get some high quality rest. Even if you can only afford to upgrade for either your outward or return flight it will be completely worth it.

By following these tips we hope that you find it easy to survive your next long haul flight.
