Best travel tips to make a long flight bearable

Long distance traveling is in trend now – more and more travelers tend to explore the world overseas, which makes their flights longer and more challenging.

So we gathered all our experience to make the list of the best travel hacks you can keep in mind when you go for a long flight.

Give your preference to morning flights

Give yourself a chance not to make your long flight even longer. All the delays throughout the day tend to build up by the evening, so it is highly advised to travel in the morning.

Get to the airport early...

...unless you checked-in online 24 hours prior to your flight. But if you didn’t, being late to the airport will be not only stressful, but also you may get the least comfortable seat. In this case your long flight will be just unbearable.

Don’t forget a portable charger

In most cases long flights are pretty entertaining with movies, etc. However, if you are using your own gadgets, you better be prepared. It is actually even recommended to bring your own entertainment in case if your plane cannot offer you any.

Stay hydrated

Long flights are not a good impact on our bodies. Water is the best option oppose to tea or coffee. Other than that, bring your own reusable water bottle, which you can refill at the airport.

Make sure you won’t get turned around on the border

That will definitely make your long flight the worst experience of your life! Check the visa situation for your destination country! ETA, visas on arrival, or even powerful passports in their pockets can make some travelers too self-confident that they are all set for the landing. We do encourage all travelers to check if they need a travel visato reach their desired destination.

Cathay Pacific is ending the daily flight route Vancouver – New York City

One of the most popular flights between North America’s two coasts will be discontinued. No more daily flights from YVR to JFK by Cathay Pacific starting from April 2020.

After 23 years of operation, the flight from the Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) to JFK service (with a stop at YVR) will no longer exist. According to official reports, this decision has been made since this route has been unprofitable for Cathay Pacific for years because of increased competition from non-stop flights from Hong Kong to New York City.

If you are willing to travel to New York City from Vancouver and try one of the most enjoyable flights, you still have almost eight months to do so. If you have a Canadian Permanent Residency or staying in Vancouver on any temporary visa, check if you need a visa to travel to the USA and use your chance to explore a little bit more.
