20 tips you can use on your next airplane trip to have a better inflight experience. First, dress right: bring long sleeves, a jacket or a hoodie. I like pants and shirts with lots of pockets. Bamboo shirts are great for the “no-smell” experience.” Merino wool socks will keep your feet warm and dry. Wear shoes that are easy to take off and slip on.

2 – Bring Noise Canceling Headphones or Earplugs
Have ear pressure? EarPlanes Ear Plugs
Or chew gum

3 – Bring an eye-mask

4 – Bring luggage that fits
Sideways, front ways
Always make sure the bin closes

5 – You can put your luggage in any overhead bin

6 – Seating
Use seatguru or seatexpert
2 aisle seats across
2 window seats back to back
At the back of a section
Short connection, sit up front
Middle of the plane best for motion sickness
Seats by the windows are colder
Exit seats are the “cold feet” seats

7 – Recheck your seats at check-in time
People get upgraded so better seats may open

8 – Treat the flight attendants nice

9 – Always carry snacks
Nuts, Fruit, Trail Mix, Energy Bars (Clif Bar), Chocolate
Dont ever put your food on the table… they are gross
Traveling in first class? Use your hot towel to wipe the towel

10 – Have a credit card handy if buying food

11 – Want to eat first? Order a special meal

12 – Drink plenty
Its dry on the plane
But maybe not too much alcohol

13 – Bring lotion

14 – Bring a toothbrush

15 – Don’t take your sleeping pill until take off

16 – Entertainment
Tablet, Kindle, Laptop
Make sure you have the latest airline “app” if streaming
Make sure batteries are charged before
Power adapter handy if on a long flight
Power strip handy

17 – Bring a pen
Always forms to fill out internationally

20 – Relax!
Don’t stress out about your connection, getting to gate late, slow opening the doors… it doesn’t matter, you can’t do anything about it anyway. Just chill and go with the flow.
