Traveling on the Plane..

Plan to wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing on the plane. You can pack a small travel pillow to put around your neck or you can use the airline pillow to sleep on. Drink plenty of water, chew gum and moisturize your skin and lips throughout the flight.

Get up and walk around at least once every hour (except during sleeping hrs. that drives every one else nuts).

Sleep whenever you can on the flight. However, try to during the designated sleeping hours. If you feel cold during the night, ask the flight attendant for a blanket.

There will be a couple on-demand movie channels and several music (comedy, talk radio, kiddie songs, etc) channels on the plane for your enjoyment. So if you cannot sleep watch a couple of movies or three...I find it helpful to take a couple of Tylenol PM or Benedryl pills to help me get to sleep.

The food in our flight will be "free" (more like pre-paid) so please endulge. Airplane food is packed in European portions so if you are a big eater, bring a yummy favorite snack or two. Trail mix works for me!
