LAX to Tullamarine Airport Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • The humidity level inside a plane's cabin is even lower than it is in many deserts. That’s why it's not unusual to develop headaches during and after a long flight. The best way to counteract this is to keep hydrated by consuming 250ml of water for every hour you are in the air.
  • Make a decision about what your priorities are for your flight. To sleep through the whole thing or move around a lot? Where you choose to sit can make or break your entire flight experience. Check out the advice available online about the most suitable place for you according to your type of aircraft.
  • If airline food doesn't tickle your fancy, bring along a few of your own snacks. Pre-packed health bars, sandwiches or wraps make good options.
  • Prepare a plan for your arrival. Having a detailed travel itinerary can help you get the most out of your adventures.
  • You'll be full of regrets if you forget to bring along an effective travel pillow. The difference a few solid hours of slumber makes to the beginning of your holiday can be significant.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • When it comes to what to wear on board, you'll want to live by the motto: "Be prepared." Dress in layers so you can whip off a few if it gets warm or wrap up if it becomes a bit chilly.
  • It's not just old people or the feeble-looking man squeezed in beside you who are at risk of developing blood clots on long-haul flights. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a very serious condition that can affect anyone. Consider wearing compression socks or tights and perform feet and leg exercises while seated to keep that blood circulating.

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • Make those Vegemite sangers because you're allowed to bring your own food on the plane. Think about liquid restrictions and the comfort of other passengers before you make your choice. Also remember that some foodstuffs may be banned from your arrival country, so it's best to gobble it all up while you're on board.
