Auckland Airport (AKL-Auckland Intl.) to Mackay, QLD Airport (MKY) Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • The humidity in aircraft cabins is low, which can lead your body to become dehydrated very quickly during long flights. Remember to regularly drink water both before and during your flight.
  • If you have a tight connecting flight (or you're simply itching to get your holiday started), choose a seat close to the front of the cabin. Remember though, this area is usually kitted out for young families, and there's a chance you may get seated close to a screaming, seat-kicking toddler. Bring earplugs.
  • Consider packing a few tasty snacks on board. If nothing on that food tray looks especially appetising, at least your fave Vegemite sandwiches will keep you going.
  • There is no better time to watch the entire latest hit TV drama. Download it before you leave home and kick back and watch in undisturbed contentment.
  • Perhaps one of the most indispensable things to bring on a long journey is a comfortable neck pillow. There are heaps of weird and wonderful versions to purchase, so grab something that matches your sitting/sleeping style.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • When it comes to your choice of outfit, try to live by the motto: "Be prepared." Dress in layers so you can remove some if the temperature heats up or wrap up if the cabin gets cool.
  • Have a look online for a good pair of compression socks. Not only will you feel more comfortable in flight, these little beauties can also reduce your risk of the dangerous condition known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • In short, yes. Packing a hoard of tasty snacks can really help make the journey more enjoyable. Don't forget that the liquid rule applies to foods in gel-form also.
