Supposing you are planning to board a plane for a long flight, you can first take some precautionary steps to ensure that you have a pleasant trip. This will not only make the commute itself more enjoyable, but will have you feeling invigorated once you touch down at your destination. Make sure you book your preferred seat with the airline, arrive early for departure check-ins, and wear comfortable clothes. These steps will combine to provide you with a great inflight experience.

While you are booking your flights, be sure to put in requests for aisle or window seating, per your individual preference. Furthermore, be sure to call up the airline to confirm that your request has been processed and you have been assigned your choice of seating. Doing so will prevent you from being stuck in the uncomfortable middle seat position. Even though the middle seat may not be too bad for shorter flights, it becomes increasingly agonizing as the flight times increase.

The next thing you should make sure to do is to check in early for all your flights. For most airlines, doing so will allow you to enter the boarding queue earlier. In turn, this will allow you to enter the plane before the majority of passengers, and you will be able to stow your carry-on luggage in one of the coveted overhead bins. Of course, this will prevent you from having to put your baggage below your feet, which would decrease legroom and can become bothersome during an extremely long flight.

Finally, pick out a nice comfortable set of clothing for your flight, and focus on layering. This will allow you to take off, or put on, clothing items in order to properly regulate your body temperature. Due to different flight altitudes and other weather factors, cabin temperatures can fluctuate greatly, so make sure you are prepared for a wide range of conditions during your flight. Accordingly, even if your destination is in a tropical locale, it may not be a bad idea to pack a sweater, simply for use on the flight.

In conclusion, when traveling to your vacation destination, via plane, make sure you follow a few guidelines in order to have an enjoyable inflight experience. Be sure to coordinate your seat preference with your travel agent when booking, check in early to the attendants at your flight’s gate, and pick out a comfortable set of clothing. Following these steps will give you a great flight and set the stage for an amazing vacation.
