Sydney Airport to Wellington Airport (WLG-Wellington Intl.) Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • The level of humidity inside a plane's cabin is lower than in many deserts. That’s why it's not unusual to experience headaches on a long flight. The best way to counteract this is to stay hydrated by consuming at least 250ml of water for each hour you're in the sky.
  • If you're keen on a peaceful flight, don't choose a seat right near the toilets or galley. These parts of the cabin are often noisy and might affect how much sleep you get.
  • If you're usually so hungry you could eat a horse, your tummy may not be too pleased with with the size of the meal portions you receive on board. Pack plenty of snacks to keep you going through your lengthy flight.
  • Organise your "zone." Your seat will be your world for many hours to come, so make it as comfy as you can. Headphones, a good read, plenty of water and your tried-and-tested travel pillow should be within easy reach before settling in for the journey.
  • If you'd rather not start your holiday feeling knackered, treat yourself to the best travel pillow you can afford. Stepping off that plane feeling relaxed and rested is the best way to go.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • Lengthy plane rides are known for getting cold. Or, if it's your unlucky day, the air con can conk out and you'll be sweltering all the way to your holiday destination. That's why wearing comfortable layers is the best option while in the air.
  • Think about wearing a pair of compression socks during longer flights. These can make your time on board more comfy and can even save you from the dangerous condition known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
Q: Can you take food on international flights?
  • Yes, you can. Packing a supply of yummy snacks can really help make a long journey more enjoyable. Don't forget that the liquid rule applies to foodstuffs in gel-form as well.
