Sydney Airport to San Francisco Airport Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • Stay hydrated — this is a simple way to avoid feeling knackered after you touch down.
  • If you're keen on a quiet flight, don't choose a seat right near the galley or toilets. These parts of the aircraft are often far noisier and might impact your ability to get some decent shut-eye.
  • Food, glorious food. If you have a love affair with eating, your tummy may not be satisfied with the size of the meal portions you receive on board. Bring along a few snacks to keep you going through your long-haul flight.
  • Eyes gone square from staring at your phone? Bring along a variety of entertainment options. Whatever tickles your fancy — a good book, travel-sized Scrabble or your camera to snap those window views.
  • A proper nap is one of the most undervalued luxuries of our time. Search online for a comfy neck pillow so you can get some decent shut-eye while in the air.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • Unless you're travelling in first class, you'll quickly realise that long-haul flights are no place to get all glammed up. Kit yourself out comfortably in layers and shoes like joggers in case your feet and ankles swell.
  • Hunt around online for a good pair of compression socks or tights. Not only will you feel more comfortable in flight, these little beauties can also save you from the serious condition called DVT (deep vein thrombosis).

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • As long as the food adheres to gel and liquid restrictions, you can bring it on board. Be considerate of your fellow passengers and go easy on any potent-smelling food items. Dry snacks are a good choice.

                                      Lovely setting looking out over the bay. We loved the dining area amongst the stream and plants.

                                        for some reason they were removing all the plants during our stay resulting in a very prison like look to the hotel.
