Tullamarine Airport to LAX Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • The magic answer is simply water. Drink lots of it. Early and often. Cabin pressure, as well as caffeine and alcohol, can dehydrate your body, and jet lag can become an unwelcome travel companion.
  • Choose the seat you prefer. If you think you'll be stretching your legs a fair bit, take an aisle seat. To avoid any noisy little tackers, try to book a seat toward the rear of the cabin — special provisions for babies are often at the front of the plane on international flights.
  • There's something about flying that makes chocolate bars, lollies and chips seem perfectly OK to gorge yourself on. If the food on board doesn't whet your appetite, take control and pack some snacks you know you'll eat. Calories don't count when you're flying, right?
  • This is the perfect time to watch the entire latest popular TV series. Upload it to your laptop before you leave and sit back and watch in uninterrupted happiness.
  • Kicking off your getaway with a kinked neck isn't a good idea. Go online and check out the abundance of odd-looking but comfortable travel pillows on offer.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • Unless you're worried about being filmed by the paparazzi around the airport, skip the runway look and wear comfortable layered clothing with enclosed, flat shoes. It can get quite chilly on board too, so bring a warm sweater and a decent pair of socks.
  • Search online for a top pair of compression socks. Not only will you feel more comfy during your flight, these little beauties can also reduce your risk of the dangerous condition known as DVT (deep vein thrombosis).

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • Having a continuous flow of delicious snacks on hand is a novel way to help the time pass. Remember to include only foodstuffs which are properly packed and meet liquid and gel restriction rules.
