Johannesburg Airport to Sydney Airport Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • Drinking plenty of water is critical to ensuring a good overall flight experience. By staying properly hydrated, you'll feel more energetic and be ready to get cracking on your holiday not long after you touch down.
  • If you're planning to pack in as much sleep as humanly possible while in the air, choose a seat by the window. Even though the front of a plane generally has less ambient noise, it's also where families with young kids are often located. In any case, be sure to bring a good set of earplugs.
  • We can't say why, but there's something about flying that makes lollies, chips and chocolate bars seem perfectly normal to eat by the bucket load. If airline food doesn't tickle your fancy, take control and pack some snacks you know you'll eat. Calories don't count in the sky, right?
  • Spend your time on board reading up about your destination. An unforgettable holiday starts with knowing the area's culture, history and traditions.
  • If there's one travel accessory you shouldn't skimp and save on before a long-haul flight, it's a proper neck pillow. Arrive at your destination feeling fresh as a daisy and you’ll be able to quickly get into adventurer mode.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • Lengthy plane trips are known for getting a little brisk. Or, if you're really unlucky, the AC can cark it and you'll be sweltering all the way to your holiday destination. That's why dressing in comfortable layers is the best option while in the air.
  • It's not just your dear old mum or the feeble-looking man three rows down who are at risk of getting blood clots on long-haul flights. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a very serious condition that can affect anyone. Think about wearing compression socks or tights and perform feet and leg exercises in your seat to ensure good blood circulation.

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • Get cracking on those Vegemite sangers because you're allowed to bring your own food on the plane. Give some thought to liquid restrictions and the comfort of other passengers before you decide what to pack. Also remember that some food items may be banned from your destination, so it's best to finish it all during the flight.
