JFK Airport to Tullamarine Airport Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • The humidity level on a plane is lower than the Sahara Desert. That’s why it’s common to develop nausea or headaches during and after a long flight. Remember to stay hydrated by drinking a full cup of water for every hour you are in the air.
  • Choose your seat as soon as possible. The best seats are snapped up early, so don't leave your decision till the last minute.
  • If airline food isn't your cup of tea, bring along some snacks of your own. Prepackaged sandwiches, wraps or rolls make great alternatives.
  • Eyes gone square from staring at your screen? Take along a variety of entertainment options. Whatever floats your boat — a good book, travel-sized Scrabble or your camera to snap those window views.
  • The benefits of a super comfy travel pillow shouldn't be underestimated. Look online for a style that other veteran travellers rank highly.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • Your best course of action is to don several comfortable layers and flat, enclosed shoes for your plane trip. Don't forget to bring a cosy jumper as well, as it can get quite chilly on board.
  • Try to move around the plane as often as you can to minimise the risk of developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Wearing a quality pair of compression socks can also help prevent this condition, which is a blood clot that forms in a vein deep inside your body.

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • Bringing your own stash of snacks on your flight is a terrific idea. Be sure to properly package your favourite foods so you don't end up with a mess through your bag or through security.

            I've stayed here twice in last 3 months. Room layouts were completely different and the hotel layout is a bit of a maze. First room quite spacious, but second quite small. The beds were really comfortable. The furniture was minimal and fairly old fashioned but the bathrooms were modern and clean. ...
