London Heathrow to Sydney Airport Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • You may feel thirsty during your long flight. This is due to the decreased humidity inside the cabin of the plane. Drink as much water as possible while you're in the sky to keep yourself properly hydrated.
  • Decide on what's important to you during your flight. To sleep through the whole thing or have the freedom to stretch your legs? Where you choose to sit for that lengthy flight can make or break your entire flight experience. Check out the advice available online about the most suitable place for you based on your type of aircraft.
  • If you have an enormous appetite, your tummy may not be too pleased with with the size of the portion you'll get on board. Take plenty of tasty snacks to fill the holes during your long-haul flight.
  • Eyes gone square from staring at your screen? Bring a variety of things to keep you entertained. Whatever tickles your fancy — a good book, travel-sized board games or your journal.
  • Starting your holiday with a strained neck isn't a good idea. Get online and check out the huge variety of unusual but comfy neck pillows on the market.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • The aisles of an aircraft are no place for a fashion parade. Kit yourself out in comfortable layers and bring a cardigan as the AC can get chilly on board. Flat, comfy shoes are also the best idea.
  • People from all walks of life, age groups and levels of health can experience DVT (deep vein thrombosis). To reduce your risks of developing this serious blood clot condition, move as much as possible by wandering around the cabin and don a pair of compression socks.
Q: Can you take food on international flights?
  • Bringing your own private picnic on your flight is a wonderful idea. Make sure you properly package your favourite foods so you don't end up with a mess through your carry-on or through security.
