Jump to last reply

Its time again for the "things that you need for you summer overseas flights";
1)pen for filling out customs forms
2)sweater or jacket for night flight over when you get cold
3)liter of water per person to drink during the flight and at the airport-arrive hydrated and less jet-lagged
4)snacks for during the flight(between the dinner and breakfast/snack services)
5)make up your own amenity kit if you are sitting in economy-toothbrush/paste,slipper sox,eyeshades,chapstick,ponytail holder or clip,neck pillow
6)at least one travel book in your carryon along with printouts of your hotel's address and phone so you can show people the address in their language
7)extra diapers and changes of clothes for your babies and toddlers along with wrapped small toys to amuse them during the flight/cheerios/books.etc.
8)take an AIRBORNE tablet before you get on the flight and possibly before you land to stay healthy
9)buy a spray bottle of saline water(salt) to squirt into your nose periodically during the flight to keep your nasal tissues moist so you don't catch a cold or other "cooties" from you fellow passengers
10)manners and respect for your other travelers in the aluminum tube across the pond
Have fun and enjoy the journey!
