How to better manage a long haul flight?


- It's a Long haul flight from BLR to Paris
- It takes around 10 hours.
- Flight departs at wee hours of the night or should I say morning? 2:30 AM to be precise and gets you to Paris at 8:30AM.

Lack of sleep can hit your experience of enjoying Paris as the day comes along. To make the best of your time in Paris and on flight; it's best to start managing your time on flight. While I speak of my experience as I travel to France, these hacks are applicable for any long haul flights:

  1. Seat selection is a critical first step; at least one of the important steps that define your in-flight experience.
  2. Eating right will help you settle in for a good sleep. So eat on flight before you sleep. 
  3. Catch up on some good sleep on flight.
  4. Warm yourself up well before sleeping as the temperature can get quite low as the travel progresses.
  5. Keep your body hydrated on flight by drinking a lot of water.
  6. Walk around / move around frequently while awake. 
  7. Make a plan to efficiently go through the arrival procedure. Most airlines offer visual information on the post arrival process.
