Sydney Airport to London Airport (LGW-Gatwick) Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • Pretend you're a camel about to venture out on a long, dry journey into the desert and drink lots of water. Staying well hydrated helps keep post-flight exhaustion at bay.
  • A smart seat choice can make an enormous difference on a long flight. Often, it's one part luck and two parts smart planning. For maximum peace and quiet, take a seat toward the back of the plane near a window. If you think you'll want to wander around a lot, pick an aisle or emergency exit seat so you can get in and out without disturbing your neighbours.
  • If airline food doesn't tickle your fancy, bring some food of your own. Properly sealed protein bars, wraps or sushi are great options.
  • Prepare a plan of attack for after you touch down. Having a carefully thought-out travel itinerary can really help you make the most of your holiday experience.
  • Maybe one of the most essential items to bring on a long flight is a comfortable neck pillow. There are heaps of awesome versions to purchase, so pick something that suits your sleeping/sitting style.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • There's no point in wearing your best outfit on a long-haul flight. Leave your favourite little black dress and high heels in your suitcase and instead opt for layered clothing that's comfy to wear while you nap. You'll also want to pull on a pair of sensible walking shoes. You mightn't look like a runway model, but you'll be happy you put comfort over style.
  • Check online for a good pair of compression socks. Not only will you feel more comfy while on board, these little beauties can also save you from the potentially life-threatening condition known as DVT (deep vein thrombosis).

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • You are allowed to bring foodstuffs on the plane, however, you'll need to purchase drinks after you've been through the security checkpoint due to liquid restrictions. Seal your food very well as it will also go through the X-ray machine.
