Not all of us enjoy flying and this is the truth we face if we ever go on trip to another place or country.
It is more than just sleeping comfortably and using plastic cutlery. While others (particularly first time long-haul-flyers), they would find this very enjoyable and somewhat entertaining and we find this amazing because we would love to be like them. Things can go haywire if you’re seated in the middle of the plane and you’re seated right next to an old talkative lady – who seemed to be so engrossed in her talking that she doesn’t noticed you’re not interested (not to be impolite but sometimes this could wear out our patience).
So, how can you survive a long-haul flight and be ready for all possibilities from talkative nice old ladies to your on-demand meals?
1. Prepare early. Picking the right seat is the earliest preparation you can do for yourself. Of course, this is in exchange to a small fee but it is all worth it if you get to choose where you sit. In return, you get value for money because you get to sit in areas where you feel the most comfortable. This also means you need to book your flight ahead of time so you don’t need to be left with the available choices. By familiarizing yourself with the plane’s make-up ahead of time, you would know which seats have reclining capacity, power source, and extra room for leg and away from any inconveniences like the smell of toilet.
