The first thing to do is to plan. How long is the flight? How large is the airport the traveler is coming from and going to? Some things to keep in mind are food, use of bathrooms, and how to pass the time.

If the flight is short, the traveler might not need to worry about food. After all, many flights, even short ones, offer snacks. Here’s a tip: you can get more than one snack! All you have to do is ask. This is a great trick especially if you run out of food on long trips, or are extra hungry. The same goes for your beverage. Instead of being served a cup full of a drink, you can get the whole can if you ask.

Let’s talk about bathrooms. It’s my policy to go to the bathroom before a flight. It doesn’t matter if my flight is short or long. I always make it a point to go. The worst thing would be a call from nature while the seat belt sign is on and I can’t get up to go.

Passing the time has become easier on flights. Now, with technology, we have devices that play movies. Most airlines charge a fee for in-flight Internet. However, most airlines also have some form of free entertainment. It’s alright to be old-fashioned and bring a book or magazine. Audiobooks are great too! After a few flight, the traveler will become a pro at passing the time.
