Long-haul flights are the worst. You’re stuck in a tiny seat for hours, watching your fellow passengers bond with each other while you try to entertain yourself with the in-flight entertainment – but, unfortunately, watching one season of Friends will only take you so far.

Everybody complains about long-haul flights, and for good reason, but here are some handy tips for surviving a long-haul flight.

Get some sleep before you get on the plane

If you board the plane already tired, then you’ll be struggling after a short time in your seat.  Getting plenty of rest beforehand means that when you’re in the air, you can use that time for relaxing instead of forcing yourself to sleep in the uncomfortable seating position.

Bring a traveling pillow to make your flight more comfortable

Bring a traveling pillow or scarf to help you get some much-needed rest; this way, your neck won’t be sore after the flight. A traveling pillow helps you rest your neck if you want to take a short nap or watch your favorite movie.

Pack stuff that can keep you occupied for a few hours

You could bring a book, a magazine, or your tablet that’s easy to use while sitting on a plane for hours on end. Make sure to fully charge your portable gadgets, including your phone, tablet, laptop, and e-book reader. Although most planes have charging sockets, you don’t want to rely too much on them.

Take breaks and wear comfortable clothes

Wear comfortable clothes that can help you sleep well on the airplane. A cozy sweater with pants that won’t restrict your movement is a great choice for this! It’s best not to wear jeans or heavy clothing—you’ll just wear yourself out trying to get comfortable.


To remain active and avoid any back pain, it’s important to walk down the aisle every other hour and stretch your legs and back. It helps in blood circulation and keeps your mind and body active and fresh.
