Unless you are blessed enough to fly first class, air travel is not the most pleasurable experience. Long haul flights can consist of many horrific endeavours, which includes restricted access to electricity and entertainment, crying infants, and of course the dreaded toilet woes.
If you can’t afford or just don’t want to spend so much on a plane ticket but looking for a bit more of comfort to your trip, there are some things you can bring on-board to ensure a more pleasant travel than your last. Here’s a collection of items to make your future long-haul flights much more comfortable.
- Noise-Cancelling Headphones
Not just a set of earphones, but noise-cancelling headphones that will shut off any sound in the background. On a crowded holiday flight, this is your saving grace from crying toddlers and a great snorer seated next to you.
- A Heavy Duty Powerbank
What could be worse than running out of battery in the middle of a long flight? Make sure your iPhone, laptop, and Kindle are all with you throughout the flight by investing in a portable battery that can charge more than one gadget at once. You’ll be able to listen to podcasts, play games, or watch movies during the whole flight when you know you have back-up ready.
It is very important to stay hydrated while on-board a plane. Due to lack of humidity inside the aircraft, it’s easy to get dehydrated when travelling, which can lead to discomfort and headache. Be sure to bring with you a bottle of water before boarding.
- Reading Material
Nothing beats a good read over a course of a long-haul flight. Starting a book before take-off assures that you will finish a significant portion of the book or fall asleep after 10 pages. Either way, it sounds comfortable, though.
- Comfortable Pair of Jeans
Well, not only bringing, but you should be wearing your most comfortable pair of jeans. When you spend so much time in an aircraft, your body slightly expands as your body is bloated up with gas, and you can get physically uncomfortable after an hour. Wear a flexible pair or a loose one to give room to a bit of bloating up when on air.
- A Blanket
If you have enough room, a small blanket is a useful addition to your carry-on suitcase. There is no more comfortable way to catch some nap once you’re in a trans-Atlantic flight.
There are so many other ways to keep yourself comfortable during an air travel, so don’t fret. Hopefully, these tips help you pack up and, above all, enjoy your entire trip.
