Packing for In-Flight Comfort

If you want to pack for in-flight comfort while anticipating what you might need when you are on the plane, there are plenty of things to think about. Here are some suggestions to help make your flight fly by as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Prepare for Varying Temperatures
You will experience a wide range of temperatures because you will be going from the outdoors to the terminals, and then to the plane. Each location's temperature will vary. Therefore, don't just dress for the outside temperatures, also carry some extra layers with you to prepare for the colder/warmer temperatures in the terminal and on the plane. Layers can be added or removed based on your comfort level at any given time.

Dress Comfortably
You will be sitting in a confined space, generally, for a few hours or more. Therefore, it's important to dress in loose, comfortable clothing, as well as wearing comfortable shoes.

Prepare Your In-Flight Electronics
To help pass the time while on the plane, you will want to make sure you have the devices you will need for each of your family members. Make sure they are all pre-charged, all cords in hand, games/movies packed, enough headphones or earbuds for everyone, and anything else you might need.

In-Flight Tips for Traveling with Kids

One of the things parent and guardians find most challenging is keeping their kids comfortable, occupied, and exhibiting good behavior on the plane. Here are some excellent tips to help you do just that.

  • Discuss what will happen before, during, and after the flight so your kids will know exactly what to expect before it happens.
  • Take a favorite blanket or another comfort item with you on the plane to make your younger kids feel more secure.
  • Pack some coloring books, puzzles, or other simple games to keep your kids occupied during the flight.
  • Take some of your kids' favorite snacks on the plane. Eating is a great way to pass the time and keep kids happy and occupied.
  • Plan on the hour or half-hour surprises to keep your kids happy and engaged. Doing this will help make sure they remain well-behaved on the plane because they will spend their time anxiously awaiting their next surprise, which they will only get if they are "good."
