what-not-to-do-on-a-long-flight-title-pageAirline travel is one of the most famous ways of travelling today. It is the easiest way of travelling long distance. However not every air flight journey is easy. We are talking here about the long overseas journeys that take 16-20 hours in the airplane. With no internet, mobile phone or connectivity with the outer world, Trust me it’s difficult! So here is a short guide to what should be done and what not to get through long air flights. Commercial water filtration expert visited my office to install filtration equipment in there. We were having conversation about traveling because he was also a travel lover. He gave me some tips about what we shouldn’t do on a long flight which are as follows.

The most important thing that needs to be considered here is not missing on your sleep before flight. This is a mistake which is repeatedly made by long flight travelers. As per their perspective they keep themselves awake before flight assuming that they will sleep throughout the flight. However, one cannot have a good sleep in airplane considering the amount of disturbances like the other passengers, flight announcements, engine sound etc. Imagine what will keeping awake for a night before and the whole flight time will do to your health and body?

People carry a lot of entertainment stuff with them like laptops, Ipad, video games, books, etc in order to keep themselves entertained. However, if the carry along stuff will be more, it can become a problem for them as they might have to compromise on their sitting or leg space in order to keep their stuff. The same apply for the comfort stuff also. In order to enjoy comfort and luxuries on the airplane, people pack many things like neck cushions, blankets, warmers, extra jumpers, socks etc, ending up in using almost negligible amount of stuff.

Another thing that you need to be careful of on long distance journeys is your stuff and belongings. Because it is a long flight and you may doze off any time or several times it is advisable to keep your belongings like your wallet or mobile phone in some secret compartments or pockets of your attire. Stuff like laptop, iPad etc can be kept closer to your body so that it wakes you in case someone tries to get away with it.

One common mistake that most of us make on long flights on airplanes is eating everything which is being served. In other word we don’t want to miss on any food that is being served considering it to be a medium of entertainment on flight. This results in stuffing yourself with a lot of food and at the end getting sick on the flight. Would like to use your sick bag all the way back home?
