Air Travel Tips - Making The Flight Fun

Feb 23, 2008
If you've flown a million times or it's your first time flying, you may find it hard to keep yourself entertained when you're in the air. Like a road trip, there are a million things to do but when it comes to thinking about these things, it's hard to make a list. Below are a few things you can bring on your next flight to make the trip a lot easier for yourself.

Bring ear plugs

Believe it or not, ear plugs are something that a lot of people tend to forget. If you haven't brought ear plugs on an airplane, you should try it the next time you fly. Ear plugs are generally found at any type of general merchandise store for as little as one dollar. If you haven't wore ear plugs before, they do a very good job at drowning out all of the sound around you.

Think of what you do at home

Before you go on your next flight, think of what you do at home in your spare time. If what you do involves electricity, it probably comes in a portable version. If you don't have the money to purchase this product, look into possibly renting a similar item or borrow one from a friend. If you like to play video games, you can look into getting a PSP or Game Boy. If you like to watch DVDs or TV, you may want to get a portable DVD player.

Before you do bring DVDs on board, check and see if your airline supplies TVs. Some airlines will supply in house movies for no charge. All you will need to bring are headphones. If you forget to bring your headphones, you can usually rent or buy them from the airlines for a few dollars.

Grab some snacks

Nothing makes time fly by like a little snacks. Most airlines allow you to bring small foods on the flight, so you won' t have to worry about it getting thrown away. If you forget food, most airlines will allow you purchase snack packs for a certain price. Some airlines have free snacks and drinks. Like I mentioned above, this all depends on the airline, they are all different from each other.

The easiest way to keep yourself entertained is to be prepared. A long book and magazine can take you a long way. A bad thing to do though when it comes to magazines is to purchase one magazine just because of the topic. You may find that the magazine is very dull and if this is the only source of entertainment you bring on board, you may find the flight to be even longer if you don't have any entertainment.

As mentioned above, the best thing to do is just to think of the things you do at home. Everything in today's world comes in a portable device. From laptops to DVD players, you'll be able to keep yourself entertained.
