Ninoy Aquino Airport to Cairns, QLD Airport (CNS-Cairns Intl.) Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • Drinking enough water is critical to improving your flight experience. By staying properly hydrated, you'll feel more energetic and be ready to get cracking on your holiday the minute you hit the tarmac.
  • A good seat choice can make all the difference on a lengthy flight. Often, it's one part luck and two parts smart planning. For your best chance at peace and quiet, pick a seat at the back of the cabin near a window. If you think you'll want to wander around a bit, choose an aisle or emergency exit seat so you can get in and out without disturbing your seatmates.
  • Never bend your neck out of shape trying to see whether the beef or the chicken looks the most enticing again. Bring your own meal on board — sushi, hearty salad bowls or a stash of junk food are a few substitutes for airline food.
  • Prepare your "zone." Your seat will be your world for many long hours, so make it as comfortable as possible. Your phone, a good book, bottle of water and a proper neck pillow should be at your fingertips before buckling up.
  • A proper neck pillow will make all the difference to how much sleep you can rack up while on board. Look online now for a popular style so that you can begin your getaway feeling relaxed and refreshed.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • The smartest choice for your outfit is comfy layers. Thinks things like shirts, sweaters, jackets and scarves. But don't throw looking chic completely by the wayside. Dressing with a bit of style just might get you a free upgrade.
  • Being stuck in your seat for hours can leave you with sore, stiff legs. But in a worst-case scenario, it can cause harmful blood clots. Moving around the cabin and performing exercises in your seat as well as wearing a good quality pair of compression socks can help prevent deep vein thrombosis.

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • Taking food items on a plane won't be an issue. Be considerate of your fellow passengers by choosing items that don't have a strong smell. Dry, prepackaged snacks make good sense due to the restriction on liquids and gels. Be sure to check your destination's rules before you take any of your leftovers into the country.

                                          We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom unit with a king size bed. A little out dated but good for us .the grounds and gardens were amazing.
