How To Feel Comfortable On A Flight

As we all start to make plans for travel as a gift to ourselves as restrictions ease, we’re thinking about flights again. Flying in economy isn’t alway ideal, especially on smaller planes where legroom is tight. However, just because you’re trapped in your seat, it doesn’t mean that you have to be uncomfortable. Try some of these simple tips to help you feel more comfortable when you fly. 


Dress Strategically

Layers are the key to flying comfortably. Planes can move quickly between being too hot and too cold, so wear clothing that you can easily take off and put on. Soft, breathable items like sweatshirts and cotton tops will keep you comfortable. Blanket scarves can be used to keep you warm too. Get your hair out of your face with a hair tie bracelet. Stay away from tight-fitting clothes, or anything with scratchy tags. 

Wear The Right Shoes

Don’t wear heels or chunky shoes for a flight. You should wear shoes that are comfortable, but that you can also take on and off quickly so you can get through security withput any delays. Once you’re settled in your seat, take your shoes off. Your feet can swell during flights, so wear comfortable socks or change into slippers to allow your feet some room to breathe. 

Bring Earplugs

Block out the noise from around the cabin with some good quality earplugs. With the noise around you deadened, it will be easier to nap during the flight. 

Pack A Light Snack
A small, healthy snack will be a good energy lift when you fly. Good ideas for in-flight snacks include things like baby carrots, trail mix, fruit, or anything else that can be kept in a plastic baggy. Don’t eat greasy foods that will make you feel lethargic. Avoid upsetting your neighbors, and leave the smelly foods to eat at home. 

Check-In Early

Tick one stressful thing off your list and get checked-in early. If you check-in online before you go to the airport, you can save time in long lines, and may also be able to choose your seat. 

Choose The Right Seat

Everyone has their own preference on where they like to sit on a plane. Taller passengers will be comfortable in an aisle seat, as it’s easier to spread out. If you want to nap on the flight, choose a window seat, so you won’t be disrupted by other passengers climbing over you. All passengers will be more comfortable in a seat closer to the front of the plane. The back is often noisier due to the engine and might smell like the bathroom. 


Drink water, not coffee or soda. Caffeine and sugar can crash your energy, making you feel more tired and dehydrated than you did before. The air inside the cabin is dry, with humidity levels of around 10 to 20 percent, compared to the usual 30 to 65 percent. This will dry out your eyes and skin, making you feel uncomfortable. Ask the flight attendant for more water if you need it.
