Tips For a Good Air Travel Planning

If you have ever traveled by air you would know that how tough it is to be in good state after the flight and that is especially if you have long haul flight you better be prepared for some harsh realities.  

With that said, I would always vouch for the fact that it is better to be prepared than be sorry. There are a few things that you should keep in mind while traveling by air.  

Airports nowadays are a mess with additional security measures and checks. So make sure that your reach the airport well in time and that means at least three hours before the international flight departure or at least two hours before if you are taking a domestic flight.  

Then if you are carrying a laptop make sure that it is out of the carry on bag as it has to be separately scanned through the security camera. Also make sure that you have no knife or anything pointed in the carry on luggage.  

Then comes the seat assignment nowadays all the airlines offer the online check in at least 24 hours before the flight. Take advantage of this facility as this will help you get the best of the best of the seats and you can have the journey in comfort. If you have an infant then make sure that you request for bulkhead seats in advance and also have the bassinet request put in. These are usually done on first come first served basis.  

Next comes the meal requirement and that is especially true for people who want to have purely vegetarian or raw diet. You need to put in the request very early. For special dietary requirements you need to put in special request and it depends on the airline whether they will be able to accommodate the request.  

In order to take proper rest during the flight make sure that you have a change of clothes and change into something lighter and comfortable as opposed to a business suit. So travel in easy clothes and then change back into formal wear just before the plane lands or after the plane lands. Make sure that to carry an IPod or a something which you can plug into ear. You can tune into airplane radio or TV also but usually they are very boring so it is better to have your own music device.  

Hope these simple yet important tips will make your flight less stressful if not enjoyable.
