                                          How to survive a long flight:

                                          • Dehydration is sometimes one of the most irritating side effects of spending hours in a giant metal tube. Kick that to the curb by sipping on water to counteract the dry cabin air.
                                          • Whether you prefer a window, an aisle or an exit seat, selecting the right spot will have a huge impact on your flight experience. Think about what's important to you, like staring out the window or having the freedom to move around.
                                          • Get your snack on. But say no to your favourite potato chips as they can result in extra fluid retention. Some wholesome nibbles to take on board with you are fresh fruits, almonds and grain crackers.
                                          • Take your own entertainment like a good book. If you've watched all of the in-flight shows, you'll have some other options to last you through the trip.
                                          • Invest in a well-designed neck pillow. You'll be pleased you did when your noggin is sliding onto your seatmate's shoulder as you're nodding off.

                                          What to wear on a long flight:

                                          • Light and natural materials are ideal to wear on board. Bring your favourite jumper and opt for some enclosed shoes. That way, you'll be warm and cosy during your flight.
                                          • Sitting for extended periods of time in a confined airplane seat can affect your circulation and increase your risk of blood clots in the legs, or deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Do exercises such as leg stretches or wander about the cabin and wear a pair of compression socks to encourage circulation.
