Whether you’re traveling across the country for the holidays or flying across the world for a tropical getaway, there’s no denying long flights suck.
Sure, the excitement of your final destination dulls the dreadful time spent in security lines and stuck in an upright position. And if you’ve taken a flight recently, you know (unless of course you’re splashing cash to fly first class every time you board a plane) that seats can be unbearably uncomfortable, leg room is more cramped than ever, and there’s bound to be a barking dog or crying baby somewhere within earshot.
The truth is, there’s an endless combination of minor inconveniences that can exacerbate long flights and kick off any trip on a negative note―but only if you let them. Do yourself a favor and skip the headache by investing in these ingenious travel gadgets including noise-canceling headphones to comfortable travel duds. Each has been designed to make your next long-haul flight feel like a breeze. After one use, you’ll wonder how you ever flew without them.
Even if you’re laying low this holiday season and staying close to home, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared for future long flights. You never know when an unexpected work trip, spontaneous getaway, or even a destination wedding invitation will pop up.
