6 Tips for Surviving a Long Flight


Do you ever dread going on long flights because you wonder just how will you survive all those hours?! Long flights can either be really miserable or really fun. But we want your long flights to ALWAYS be really fun, so make sure to bring these six essential items with you. We can ensure you surviving a long flight will be a piece of cake from here on out!

Surviving a Long Flight Requires Anti-Bacterial Wipes

Anti- Bacterial wipes are great for wiping down any type of surface. You never know the amount of germs that are lingering around you, so it doesn’t hurt to do a fast wipe down of the area around you. It’s also great to freshen up under your armpits and give yourself a quick wipe bath. These wipes will help you stay fresh and hygienic all flight long!

Bring An Insulated Water Bottle

An insulated water bottle will be a life-saver surviving a long flight. You can take it straight  through TSA, but make sure it is empty first. Then once you are through TSA, find somewhere to fill up your water bottle. You just saved a lot of money by not having to pay for over-priced water at the airport or on the plane, and your water will stay cold all flight long!

Sleep to Survive a Long Flight

We all know trying to get some sleep on an airplane is very hard. But if you can try to get some shut eye, it will make the time of your flight go by way faster. Make sure to pack these items in your carry-on bag so you can be comfy and relaxed all flight long. A neck pillow is a great cushion for you since we can’t all be blessed with the window seat. An eye mask and ear plugs are perfect to block out all the surrounding noises. And, a nice blanket and fuzzy socks to keep you warm and snuggled all flight long.

Bring Entertainment to Survive a Long Flight

When you are stuck awake and can’t sleep anymore, make sure to bring a variety of entertainment with you. Download all your favorite movies off of Amazon Prime or Netflix. Bring a pair of Bluetooth headphones to tune into your shows. Even bring some books or magazines and catch up on all the latest gossip going on in the world.

Bring Eye Drops for Dryness

Eye drops are great to have during your long flight because your eyes may get dry or blood shot after flying for so long. Put just a few drops in each eye and instantly feel the redness in your eyes start to disappear. Now you can see a lot clearer 😉

Pack Dryer Sheets for Static

Lastly, make sure to have a few dryer sheets in your carry-on bag because our hair has the tendency to get static from flying and being next to other people. All you have to do is run the dryer sheet through your hair a few times and say goodbye to static!
