8 Travel Tips for Long Haul Flights

Water is Key

One person said that keeping the entire body fresh and moisturized was the best way to stay comfy on a long flight. They said: “My tip is to keep every part of my body moisturized. Water, of course. But eye drops, lip balm, lotion, and even Aquaphor for the inside of my nose! It's not so miserable when you don't feel like your eyeballs are getting sucked out of your head.”

Bring Your Own Snacks

One user said that bringing your food and drink onto the plane from the airport can be a godsend. They said: “I bring snacks and a bottle of water because I don't like being at the mercy of the flight attendants' schedule, and I don't like bothering them outside of the schedule.

Take a Pitstop 

One user said their mishap came on the return journey home when they realized on the flight home that they’d left their keys at the hotel. They said: “I forgot to pack my house keys – I’d left them in a drawer in a hotel room. Thankfully I was living with a flatmate who could let me in, and I had to get the hotel to return my keys to me.”
