There’s nothing fabulous about sitting in a cramped seat for hours, counting down the minutes until the next round of beverage services. However, flying can get a little bit easier with a few travel hacks.
For all of your traveling needs (some additional necessities will be mentioned later on), a hefty carry-on that fits under the seat in front of you is the first step. Whether it’s for an extra sweater (I know people who even bring more comfortable shoes for the plane) or just for a couple extra books, a big bag is a must.
Whether it’s a ginger ale or a glass of wine, hydrating is a must. The biggest-sized water bottles you can find after security are often over-priced, but well-worth it in the dry plane cabins. Don’t drink it all at once, but do drink all of it- pacing yourself will help you hydrate and minimize mid-air bathroom visits. Alcoholic beverages are ideal, for me, on long red-eye flights when I need a little bit of help falling asleep. While you’re picking your beverage of choice, feel free to pick up a non-salty snack (dried fruit is always good). Throw those in your big carry-on.
That dry airplane environment that makes you thirsty does the same to your skin. Traveling with an easy hand cream or facial moisturizer are the easier routes to go, but true skincare fanatics shamelessly throw on a sheet mask and take a nap. Either work, but be sure you don’t leave your face unattended.
If you’re one of those who can fall asleep anywhere – including a narrow seat wedged between several unbelievably loud engines, flying 35,000 ft. in the air – congratulations. If sleeping in those conditions sounds harder than calculus, welcome to the club. There are a few tips & tricks to get around that, including a drink on the plane (see: Drink Up!), taking a red-eye flight, or even taking a Zzzquil. Before taking any medications, be sure to follow instructions, and definitely don’t take anything until your flight has taken off.
Believe me, de-planing for a flight delay after a chemically-induced bout of severe drowsiness is anything but fun.
