How To Be More Comfortable During Long Flights | Tips to Make Your Long Flight Comfortable

Flying will always be a stressful endeavor no matter how you look at it. People who have to travel long flights are undoubtedly the most stressed out people, even if they go first class. But there are ways to make long flights more comfortable, less stressful and more enjoyable.

The first thing when to think about when you are going on a trip in a Plane is your comfort zone, and in Coach (Economy) Class that is a very small space indeed, so you need to make the most of it. First think very carefully about where you want to sit, the Isle seat or the Window seat.

Airlines offer a pillow on long flights. You can place this pillow at your lower back to make your seating more comfortable and also to avoid backaches. The pillow can also be used to support your neck while sleeping. Simply crunch it a bit to use it for neck support. This will stop your head from tilting when you are asleep.

It is advisable to bring some snacks or maybe a sandwich for your journey. If you don't want to do that, then you may want to eat a meal before you fly. You will get at least 2 meals and a snack on a 12 hour flight, but that still may leave you hungry by the time you arrive at your destination.

Bring something to listen to or watch while you are traveling. This will help you pass the time. Watch a movie on your MP3 player or get an audio book that you can listen to. You can also do traditional ready as well.

Avoid wearing tight fitting clothing on a long flight. Wearing loose fitting, cotton fabrics is best to ensure you are comfortable throughout the trip. You might also consider boosting your immune system before your trip to avoid catching the colds lurking in stuffy plane air.

Watch the movie the flight offers. If you are fortunate enough to get a movie on your flight, watch it. It's free and it might be good. I saw Erin Brokavich on a flight out to San Francisco and at first I wasn't going to watch it, then I changed my mind. I actually enjoyed it, and lets face it, who doesn't like looking at Julia Roberts in very little clothing.

Be sure to have your passport ready before reaching the check in counter and keep it handy to pass through security. There is nothing worse than standing in a long line with passengers holding up the wait with searching for tickets and I.D.

Do you have an iPod? If not, I suggest you get yourself one as it can really make your flight so much more bearable. I like to use in-ear headphones as it cancels out all the external noise and helps you to sink into your own world. It can also help you sleep better - which is very important in feeling refreshed when you do land.

Try to get some sleep on the flight so you will feel refreshed upon arrival. Purchase a neck pillow, it well worth the price to keep from getting a sore neck. Earplugs and eye shades are great for drowning out noise and movement.
