Does your air travel include switching planes? Try to make the most out of your layover, depending on how long you have to spend between flights.
If you don’t have much time, look into the kind of services and entertainment the airport has to offer. If you have a few hours to spare, do your homework and check out attractions by the airport in the layover country and go exploring!
Active All Day Sleepy All Night
Flying the red-eye? To make absolutely sure you get to sleep after takeoff, plan the 24 hours prior to boarding the plane accordingly. This means you should try to wake up early and make sure to stay active all day.
Those who work hard during the day will be rewarded with sleeping hard during the night no matter what means of transportation they're on.
Manage Your Docs
Flying involves an immense amount of bureaucracy. Other than your passport, there are so many documents you need to keep track of, and demanding a single human brain to do that is just asking for trouble.
To make sure your papers are all in order, start a document checklist. It can be on your phone or in your favorite cloud account. Don't forget to tick items off when the tasks are done and to always keep a printed copy of everything somewhere accessible.
Going on a business trip? Your time at the destination must be ridden with meetings and appointments. If you have some control over your schedule, try to keep the errands f the first day to a minimum.
The first 24 hours after landing are crucial for adjusting to the new location; plus, you can never know if a flight will get delayed. Just give yourself some buffer time before diving into your important work business.
Never Take Toilet Paper for Granted
Going to the bathroom on an airplane is not always a very pleasant experience, but it is sometimes inevitable. While the cabin crew does whatever it can to make sure the passengers' needs are met, they can't predict everything. Like the time when the toilet paper runs out.
In order to keep yourself covered in that area, put a pack of tissues in your carry-on. You make are in charge of your own destiny.
