When I recently heard a discussion about the longest flights in the world, it got me thinking of my own travel experiencese Tripsta and it reminded me of my first real long-haul flight to Sydney, Australia, at the 2000 Summer Olympics. I felt confident about six hours over 15 flying hours. I remember exactly that I thought, “Six hours less, nine missing, no sweat, I have”. Four hours later and boring, that was another story. You could have dumped me in a bucket. “There are still five hours, I do not have that.” But here I arrived. Unfortunately, it meant returning as well, a flight in which I made a tactical mistake that led to the misery and entertainment of my friends on the flight, which I will talk about later.
He has no better friend in the world on long hauls than his frequent flyer miles. On the flight from Tokyo to Newark, I was disappointed when he was done. I asked my travel agent to help me find flights where I could burn all my miles to improve my journey. This meant bringing Puddlers to my final destination in Japan (Gifu), but some extra flights were a low price for 27 hours of first-class legroom, sunbeds, and food entertainment and room to breathe.
- Do not carry too many things.
Registered registration fees encourage travelers to carry more and more things, but on long-haul flights this can cause burns. Everything under the seat in front of you means less leg space and less space for 15 or 16 hours. Do not bring so much that you fight for your own sleeping place.
- Get your gear to work
When it comes to survival flights, it’s not being a gear person. I cannot afford to wear pillows, eye masks, earplugs, earmuffs, etc., except on a long-haul flight. As mentioned above, your overall transport should be limited, but you should consider some of these relatively small tools for survival. Your body and brain will thank you for the comfort you can offer them. The inconvenience of packing and transporting them is ruined by the 15-hour misery of flying with crying children, announcements from pilots, engine noise and a big gust of wind.
- Relatively rested board
Do not trust a long-haul flight as a good place to catch up on sleep. This is not the case. As engaging and intuitive as it looks on an extremely tired long-haul flight, hoping to sleep all the time, you’ll find yourself in a world of pain when you can sleep for some reason. He’ll be on the plane long enough to spot blinks, even when he’s a little rested, and I advise him to take him on arrival; When your eyes start to fall, leave the cover of your eyes and earplugs and follow them. If he takes a nap in some layers of Angry Birds for two hours, he might get angry later.
