Nairobi Airport to Sydney Airport Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • Pretend you're a camel about to head off on a desert safari and drink lots of water. Staying well hydrated helps keep post-flight fatigue at arm's length.
  • For a little extra cash, you might be lucky enough to score yourself a seat with extra legroom. This can make a big difference if you're tall or you like to stretch out while you kip. Remember though — these seats are usually emergency exits and may be located near the galley or toilets, making them slightly busier.
  • Bring some wholesome snacks; if you're not keen on airline food, you'll be thanking yourself when you start to get hungry.
  • Get stuck into all those little things you've been wanting to do for ages but have been too busy. Stuff like cleaning out your inbox, reading a book from cover to cover or learning Spanish. You'll have heaps of time while on board.
  • The value of a comfortable neck pillow simply can't be underestimated. Look online for a product which other pro travellers rank highly.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • Unless you're travelling in first or business class, you'll quickly realise that plane flights are no place to parade the latest runway fashions. Kit yourself out comfortably in plenty of layers and flat, roomy shoes in case your feet and ankles swell.
  • People from all walks of life, age groups and health levels can experience DVT (deep vein thrombosis). To avoid developing this serious blood clot condition, move often by wandering around the aircraft and wear a pair of good quality compression socks.

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • Pretzels, chocolate bars, your nan’s muffins … Yep, you can bring them. There’s nothing like having a stockpile of goodies to help make that long flight zoom by. Just be mindful of liquid restrictions and leave the tuna sangers at home — it's poor etiquette to bring smelly food in the cabin.
