Tullamarine Airport to Johannesburg Airport Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • According to clever people in lab coats, you should drink at least a full cup of water every hour you are in the air in order to stay hydrated. This can help you feel less exhausted when you finally arrive at your destination.
  • Have a look at your aircraft type online and book in your seat location sooner rather than later. Everyone has different priorities while flying — be it snoozing away, catching up on work or enjoying hours of uninterrupted screen time. It's well worth taking a minute to work out where your ideal seat is.
  • Food, glorious food. If you're usually so hungry you could eat a horse, your tummy may not be too pleased with with the portion size you get on board. Bring a few snacks to fill the holes during your lengthy flight.
  • Here's your opportunity to do a little digital housekeeping. Delete (or read!) those emails which have been piling up in your inbox for ages. There's nothing like finally getting a grip on those annoying red notifications.
  • Seasoned travellers know that a good neck pillow is one of the most important things to squeeze into your carry-on. Bring a pair of earplugs and a warm sweater and spend most of the flight catching up on sleep.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • There's no point in wearing your best outfit on a long-haul flight. Leave your expensive outfits and high heels in your checked bags and instead choose layers which are comfortable to wear all day and night. You'll also want to pull on some flat, enclosed shoes. You mightn't look like a runway model, but you'll be happy you put comfort over style.
  • Scour online for a highly rated pair of compression socks or tights. Not only will you feel more comfy in flight, these little beauties can also save you from the dangerous condition known as DVT (deep vein thrombosis).

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • Bringing your own private picnic on board is a terrific idea. Be sure to properly package your favourite foods so they don't make a mess through your bag or through security.

                                        Felt that this was truly value for the price. Airport transfers, breakfast and comfortable bed were all great!

                                          How any hotel does not check to see if the curtains close properly to keep out the light astonishes me. Wrong fittings. Request for a fix didn’t work. Africa for you. My wife didn’t like the glass wall to bathroom as no privacy. Breakfast coffee not to our liking. Wonderful location for travelers ...
