* Take your shoes off after takeoff - your feet swell on the plane. Don't wear tight-fitting shoes on the plane or you might not be able to comfortably get back into them when you get close to the destination.
* Buy a neck cushion and inflate it 1/2 way so it supports you but your head touches the headrest.
* Take a good pair of headphones, noise cancelling if you can
* Get as much sleep as you can on the plane - makes the flight go faster if nothing else
-* Take a bottle of water.
+* Take a bottle of water.
* Try and get an exit row seat but make sure it's on the outside of the plane and an aisle seat. Check in early and ask. Make sure it's not by the toilet either. Whatever happens, the further up the front of the plane you are the better - behind the wings sucks.
IanMcDonald's thoughts on international travel.
-* Set your watch to the destination time zone as soon as you
on the plane and
live in that
time zone . If
it is night there rest (even if you don't sleep) and
if it is day then
try and stay awake (even if you are tired) . I have found this nearly always beats jet lag
-* Don't drink too much alcohol
it dehydrates you especially given the environment in the plane. The exception to this is
feel free to have a drink when
to sleep (see above point
) as it can help you go to sleep
