LAX to Sydney Airport Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • Drinking lots of water is one part of the puzzle to having a pleasant overall travel experience. By staying well hydrated, your whole body will feel fresher and be ready to jump right into your holiday not long after you land.
  • The right seat choice can make a huge difference on a long-haul journey. Often, it's one part luck and two parts planning. For maximum peace and quiet, take a seat at the back of the plane near a window. If you plan to move around a lot, pick an aisle or emergency exit seat so you can get in and out without disturbing your neighbours.
  • If airline food doesn't tickle your taste buds, take some food of your own. Well wrapped protein bars, wraps or sushi make great options.
  • Browse through your destination guide and craft a plan of attack for your first few days. Some forethought can help make your getaway much more fulfilling.
  • The deeper you get to sleep on board, the more strength you'll have to enjoy your destination. A comfy travel pillow can really impact how many Zs you catch during your flight.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • Your best course of action is to don comfortable layers and flat, enclosed shoes during your flight. Remember to bring a warm sweater as well, as it can get nippy in the cabin.
  • Even young, fit and healthy travellers can develop deep vein thrombosis, or DVT. Don't disregard the dangers and do what you can to prevent this serious condition during your flight. Walk around the cabin as often as you can, keep stretching your feet and legs while seated and and consider wearing compression socks or tights.

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • Keeping a continuous flow of enticing snacks on hand is a novel way to help the time pass. Remember to include only items which are well packed and meet liquid and gel restrictions.
