Choosing the Right Seat
A comfortable seat is a key factor of comfort during a flight. It is always better to choose an aisle seat. If you are flying in an airplane with three rows of seats, it is best to occupy the aisle seats in the center row. They have several advantages: instant access to the aisle and a toilet – for you, and two ways to get to the aisle and toilet – for a passenger sitting in the center. This way, the chances that someone would try and step over you are automatically reduced by 50%.
While you are sitting for hours, it is very important to maintain normal blood flow. Some airlines show passengers good exercises for long-distance flights along with the videos about the safety measures. Do not miss the opportunity to stretch your muscles when visiting the restroom: after that, you can walk for a few minutes in the tail of the aircraft or walk up and down the salon. Moving is extremely important.
Several days before the flight, it is better not to consume heavy and fatty foods and eat light and healthy products. Some people advise not to eat on board to level the jet lag.
