Expert Tips On Surviving Your First Red-Eye Flight


If you’ve been looking at flights recently, you might have noticed one thing: all of the ones that are at reasonable times through the day are a lot more expensive than those that take off in the middle of the night and land early in the morning. This can be quite annoying if you are traveling on a shoestring budget, as you might only be able to take these so-called red-eye flights. Flying through the night can be exhausting, especially if you have to deal with jet lag in your destination.

Not sure you will be able to survive a red-eye flight? You can! Here are some expert tips that can get you through your first ever one.

Arrange Transport From The Destination Airport In Advance

One of the worst things about taking a red-eye is that you will arrive at your destination very tired and exhausted. That isn’t a good mix for when you are trying to find your way to your hotel or Airbnb! So, rather than struggling to understand a metro or bus map upon arrival, it’s a good idea to book  Atl car service in advance. That way, there will be someone waiting at the airport to pick you up and take you to where you want to go. You might even be able to have a quick nap in the car on the way!

Dress Appropriately For The Flight

There’s no getting around the fact that flights aren’t exactly the most comfortable places. So, you will be better off ignoring all of the latest trends and fashions and wearing items of clothing that you will feel comfortable in. That usually means you will need to wear tracksuit bottoms and a very loose T-shirt and sweater. It doesn’t matter that you don’t look like a fashionista – the main thing is that you won’t have to deal with any discomfort on the plane!


Get Carry-On Items That Will Help You Sleep

Ideally, you need to try and get some shuteye on your red-eye! To try and make it easier to nod off, you will need to take some carry-on items that will help you sleep. For instance, an eye mask can help you sleep if it’s very bright inside the plane. Ear plugs can reduce any sounds or noises that might keep you awake. An inflatable pillow will also be useful and will ensure you don’t wake up with a sore neck!

Take Plenty Of Entertainment

Of course, it can be very difficult to get to sleep on a plane. Some of you will be able to get all your 40 winks, whereas others could really suffer. So, make sure you have some things like books, magazines, and card games in your carry-on luggage just in case you can’t sleep. All of this entertainment will help the flight go a lot quicker for you! If you’ve got some work to do, why not take your laptop so you can complete it on the plane?!

No more red eyes after a red-eye!
