Last updated on May 12, 2020

A long-haul flight could be kind of a nightmare! You need to be prepared and fully equipped to deal with it. Here below a few tips and advices about what to bring on board a long-haul flight.

  • The headphones
  • A pair of extra socks
  • Ear plugs
  • Eye mask
  • Snacks
  • A book
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste

The headphones

Remember to bring on board your own headphones. They are probably going to give you the airlines’ one but after two or three hours it starts hurting your ears. In order to avoid any bothers make sure to bring on board a comfortable set of headphones.

A pair of extra socks

Whenever on board a long-haul flight the first thing you need to do is to take your shoes off. It helps the flow of blood. For this reason it is vital to have a pair of extra socks. It could get cold in the cabin and you can wear them when taking a walk along the aisle.

Ear plugs

You never know who is going to sit right next to you. It could be the winner of the snoring contest. So make sure to bring on board a pair of ear plugs. If you want to take a nap it is vital not to hear anything ( or anyone…).

Eye mask

The cabin crew usually turns the lights off after a couple of hours but if you really want to enjoy some good sleep I believe it will be the case to have an eye mask in your carry on bag.


We all know that airline’s food is kind of disgusting, especially if you are travelling in economy class. If you do not like those trays full of what seems to be food, make sure to have a couple of your favorite snacks with you. Ten hours without eating could be a problem!

A book

The most of the airlines feature a wide range of inflight entertainment opportunities: movies, TV shows, music and games. Flying in economy class on a long-haul flight is actually more pleasant than it used to be just a few years ago. Nonetheless having a book , your favorite one, might be a good idea. Just fall into your chair and read. It might induce sleep…

Toothbrush and toothpaste

When you are about to arrive you just feel that you need to freshen up a little! So having some toiletries with you will be a good idea!
