Sydney Airport to JFK Airport Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • Remember to keep hydrated during lengthy flights. The humidity inside the aircraft is low and makes moisture evaporate from your body quickly, which can lead to dehydration. Be sure to drink as much as possible.
  • If you have a tight connecting flight (or you simply can't wait to get your holiday started), pick a seat near the front of the cabin. Be warned though, this area is usually kitted out for young families, and there's a chance you might get seated right beside little Johnny and his Rock-A-Bye-Baby-singing parents. Don't forget your noise-cancelling headphones.
  • Consider packing a few nutritious snacks in your carry-on luggage. If nothing on that food tray looks especially appetising, at least your crackers will keep you going.
  • Get stuck into all the things you've been meaning to get around to but have never had time. Things like starting a journal, reading an entire book or learning Spanish. You’ll have plenty of time on board.
  • A good travel pillow can make a huge difference to the amount of sleep you get in the air. Browse the net for a popular style so you can start your trip feeling rested.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • The best option for your outfit is layers. Think items like shirts, pullovers, coats and wraps. But don't throw looking dapper totally down the drain. Dressing stylishly might even get you a free upgrade.
  • Even healthy, young and fit travellers can develop DVT (deep vein thrombosis). Don’t turn a blind eye to the dangers and do what you can to prevent this serious blood clot condition during your flight. Wander around the cabin often, perform leg, ankle and feet exercises in your seat and and think about wearing compression tights or socks.

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • As long as the food adheres to gel and liquid restrictions, you're allowed to bring it on board with you. Be respectful of your seatmates and skip any offensive-smelling food items. Dry snacks are ideal.

          Fine for a short overnight stay if needing to be close to JFK airport. Room was comfy and bathroom had been recently renovated. The free breakfast was appreciated. If you need a good meal upon arrival look elsewhere as no dining options. There is a free shuttle but only leaves on the hour.
