Sydney Airport to Johannesburg Airport Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • Experts say you need to drink a cup of water every hour you are in the air to stay hydrated. This can help you feel less sluggish when you eventually hit the tarmac.
  • If you reckon you'll be on the move a fair bit during the flight, book an aisle seat. Remember though — your seatmates will have to shuffle past you to do the same. Bear that in mind if you don't enjoy being disturbed.
  • There's something about flying that makes chocolate bars, lollies and chips seem perfectly normal to eat by the bucket load. If the food on board isn't your thing, take command and pack a picnic of your own. Calories don't count in the sky, right?
  • Put together a plan of attack for after you touch down. Having a well-planned itinerary can really help you make the most of your getaway.
  • The value of a good travel pillow shouldn't be underestimated. Shop online for a style which other worldly travellers hold in high regard.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • Lengthy flights are known for getting a little brisk. Or, if it's your unlucky day, the air con can conk out and you'll swelter all the way to your destination. That's why wearing comfortable layers is a wise choice while in the air.
  • Even young, fit and healthy travellers can develop deep vein thrombosis, or DVT. Don't disregard the risks and do what you can to avoid this serious blood clot condition during your flight. Move around the cabin as much as you can, stretch your legs and feet while seated and and think about wearing compression tights or socks.

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • If you'd love to bring something from home, you'll be pleased to hear the answer is yes. But be aware that it may have to go through extra screening and will most definitely have to be sent through the X-ray machine. For that reason, ensure that your food is properly wrapped.

                                        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 ...
