LAX to JFK Airport Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • It's no refreshing beer, we know, but fill up on water. It's the best way to stay hydrated and avoid nasty symptoms like sluggishness and nausea. If you can't say no to a whiskey from the drink cart, ask for a cup of water to counteract its effects.
  • Don't leave choosing your seat to the last minute. Book early and avoid being allocated to that awful middle seat or the ones near the toilets.
  • Keep your stomach satisfied. Healthy snacks like almonds, fruits and sliced veggies are nice to munch on in between meals.
  • Downloaded music, puzzles, audio books, your knitting ... It's wise to take some of your own entertainment on board. You'll be happy you did when you work out you’ve seen all the in-flight movies already.
  • A comfy neck pillow is a necessity. Along with getting some decent rest, you'll reduce your chances of experiencing back and neck pain. Search online for a style that suits your needs.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • It's always a good idea to layer up so you're ready for temperature variations. Go for clothes that are light and breathable such as cotton and linen, and put on closed-in, mostly flat shoes.
  • Long periods of sitting can result in deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Walk around the cabin regularly, shake out your legs and consider wearing a pair of compression socks or tights to improve your blood circulation.
