Sydney Airport to New Orleans, LA (MSY-Louis Armstrong New Orleans Intl.) Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • Don't forget to keep yourself hydrated during a long-haul flight. The humidity in the cabin is low and makes moisture evaporate quickly from your body, which can lead to dehydration. Try to drink as much as you can.
  • The right seat choice can make all the difference on a long flight. Often, it's one part luck and two parts clever planning. For your best chance at peace and quiet, take a seat toward the back of the aircraft near a window. If you want to move around a bit, choose an aisle or emergency exit seat so you can get in and out without disturbing your neighbours.
  • If you're a bit choosy about what you eat, consider bringing some nutritious snacks for the plane ride. Just make sure they're not of the smelly sort.
  • This is the perfect time to get that addictive new game app you've always wanted to try. It's A-OK to kill those long hours in the sky swept up in a world of mindless amusement.
  • Whether you can sleep or not often depends on how comfortable you can make yourself. A good neck pillow, noise-cancelling headphones and a cosy jumper or blanket will go a long way in helping you rack up a decent amount of Zs.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • There's little point in trying to dress to impress on a long-haul flight. Leave your designer outfits and high heels in your checked luggage and instead dress in layered clothing that's comfy to wear all day and night. You'll also want to pull on a pair of sneakers. Sure, you won't win any fashion awards, but you'll be glad you put comfort over style.
  • Even fit, young and healthy travellers can develop DVT (deep vein thrombosis). Don’t turn a blind eye to the dangers and do what you can to prevent this condition during your flight. Wander up and down the aisles as much as you can, keep stretching your feet and legs in your seat and and think about wearing compression socks or tights.
Can you take food on international flights:
  • Yes, you can. Keeping a hoard of delicious snacks helps make a long journey more enjoyable. Just remember the liquid rule applies to foods in gel-form also.
