How to Stay Comfortable and Entertained During a Long Flight

What is the one thing you dread about travel? The flight! It can be long, boring, and uncomfortable. You may not be able to control how much time your flight takes or where it goes, but there are things you can do to make the experience more enjoyable. This post shares travel tips for staying entertained and comfortable during a long flight.

Pack your favorite snacks 

Whether you prefer salty or sweet, pack something that will keep hunger at bay during the flight. This can help you avoid notoriously bad airline food, and also help you save money.

Bring a travel pillow and blanket

Airlines may provide these items, but they often run out or are uncomfortable. Bringing your own will ensure that you have something to help you sleep during the flight. There are so many great options for packing-friendly pillows and blankets that won’t take up too much space in your luggage.

Watch movies or listen to music 

This is probably the most popular way to pass the time on a long flight. Bring your favorite movies or music to help you relax and fall asleep. Most apps nowadays have the option to download shows, movies, or music so that airplane mode won’t get in the way of your entertainment. Just be sure to download them before you lose service! 

Bring a secondary form of entertainment 

Make sure to pack a book, magazine, crosswords, or something else that will keep you occupied in case your electronic device stops working. If you’re traveling with others, consider packing travel-sized games or puzzles that everyone can participate in. 

Stay hydrated 

It’s easy to forget to drink water when you’re on a plane, but it’s important to stay hydrated. You’ll likely be offered drinks and snacks during the flight, so take advantage of those and drink plenty of fluids and pack some of your own as a backup.

Stretch your legs

Get up and move around every few hours to keep your body from getting stiff. If you can’t stretch your legs in the cramped airplane cabin, go to the bathroom or take a quick walk down the aisle.

Wear comfortable clothes

Tight clothing can be uncomfortable on long flights. Wear something loose and breathable, like cotton. You’ll breathe better and be comfortable even if you have to spend hours sitting still.
