It’s definitely worth taking a long-haul flight so you can visit many incredible destinations around the world. However to make it a bit more bearable, here are some top tips for handling a long-haul flight.

1. Charge up all your devices

Make sure all your electronic devices are fully charged and you have packed your chargers in your cabin bag before boarding your flight. Your seat on the plane may not have electrical outlets, so it might be worth taking an external charging device. Who knows, it may come in handy during your holiday as well! Also, if you’re uninterested in watching the airline’s inflight entertainment, make sure you download all the films, television programmes, games etc that you want to watch on your device.

2.  Wear comfortable clothes

You will be sitting on a plane for many hours, so you want to feel as comfortable as possible. Also, everyone has a different tolerance to the temperature on an airplane, so it’s best to pack some layers.  

3.  Pack an eye mask and bring ear plugs

Although this may sound obvious, but these items will help create a better sleeping environment.

4.  Take a travel pillow

Sometimes pillows on airlines may not be to your liking, so make sure to invest in a decent travel pillow for your flight.

5.  Stock up on snacks and water

Although you will be provided with inflight meals, you may feel peckish during the flight. Also, it’s important to stay well hydrated.

6.  Move around on the plane

Make sure to stretch your legs on your flight, as this will help avoid the risk of developing DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis).

7.  Fasten your seatbelt

If you do fall asleep, make sure your seatbelt is visible to the cabin crew, so you won’t be disturbed when they’re conducting their safety checks.
