- Flight preparations. Booking a flight is more convenient now, as compared to before, thanks to the Internet. Travelers can even choose their preferred seat according to its availability. For long flights, an aisle or exit row seat is great for more leg room.
- The early bird. It’s always best to arrive ahead of time to avoid being pressured at the check-in counter or when something unexpected—like delayed or cancelled flights—comes up.
- Bringing a good book. Travelers can make the most of the travel time by immersing themselves in a good piece of literature. For those who can’t read while in the plane due to motion sickness, audio books are considered great alternatives.

- Standing and walking. Long flights can be a pain, quite literally. To avoid back pain and the like, travelers are encouraged to walk or stand once in a while along the aisle or at the standing area used by the flight attendants.
- Sleeping well. Travelers are advised to get ample sleep, not only during the flight but before traveling, to avoid feeling exhausted during the trip especially if they find it hard to sleep in a semi-sitting position.
- Freshening up. Passengers may ask the flight attendants about their expected time of arrival so as to have time to freshen up— wash their face and brush their teeth in the lavatory.
