But sometimes flying can get both boring and extremely painful when we are talking about long hours. How do you survive more than 10 hours in a plane? Honestly, I find it really difficult because being stuck in a box for lots of hours is not comfortable at all.
However, this doesn’t mean that we should see everything in black and white. There are lots of tips that can help passengers have a better flight experience even when they are flying internationally. Take a look at the following tips and see what I’m talking about!
7 Tips for Surviving Long Flights
1. Exit rows – make sure you choose a seat that is located on the exit rows. You might have to pay extra, but it is totally worth it when you will see how good your legs are feeling. Remember that you will be flying for a long time so make sure you choose a seat that will keep you comfortable.
Jet lag – two words that provoke horror among travelers.
No matter how much we love to travel there is always something that gets us thinking ‘I’m too old for this… stuff.’ Jet lag is a pretty serious example especially when you are not prepared for it or when you don’t know how to recover from the terrible symptoms that accompany this experience.
Being an optimistic person myself I often say that things will turn out great and in the end ‘how bad can it be?’ But until you don’t live a certain experience yourself you cannot know how bad or good it is. However you can search and read some information related to overcoming or avoiding jet lag.
Precious Tips on How to Overcome and Avoid Jet Lag
1. Adjust – before you venture into the world make sure you are ready for it. A few days before your flight try to change your sleeping and eating habits. Bring them closer to the ones you will have when you reach your destination. Once you’re there it will be easier to adjust to the local time and you won’t walk around half asleep.
2. Daylight – choose flights that will get you to your destination on daylight. This will make it easier for you to remain awake and to adapt to a new schedule.
As the travelers that we pretend to be, we do enjoy finding cheap flights to the destinations of our hearts. Now honestly, who would say ‘no thank you’ to a great offer? Not me that’s for sure!
But it truly is mighty hard to get a good deal on a flight taking into account that you also have to pay luggage taxes, seat taxes, breathing taxes, etc. Did you know that according to some statistics done by the US Bureau of Transportation, in 2011 the airlines made around $3.3 billion just from baggage fees? It almost makes you want to send your luggage back home by mail.
But leaving all frustration away, how do you find cheap flights that can guarantee you are left with enough money to party? Check out these simple but efficient tips!
6 Easy Tips on Finding Cheap Flights
1. Travel on a Wednesday – I know: it’s the middle of the week, you still have things to do. But, if you want to travel cheap you must sacrifice. According to FareCompare.com the domestic flights are the cheapest on Wednesday. This means that you will get more free seats, better supplies and cheaper prices.
2. Fly to secondary airports – it might not make you feel like an ‘important’ person but it will help you save money. These are normally the cheapest airports because they charge smaller landing fees. Thus, your flights will cost less. Have you noticed how instead of going to Amsterdam you can go to Eindhoven which is cheaper? Or that instead of LAX you can choose Long Beach when flying to LA?
3. Loyalty is repaid – if you have to fly often why not become an elite member of an airline? It is either this or using your credit card if it is linked to the airline. If you prove your loyalty you are repaid with travel gift cards or extra miles. It is worth a shot!
