Traveling in a plane, let alone going abroad, can be a little taxing. There are quite a few regulations to follow and just making sure you have everything before it’s too late, *queue haunting music,* is exhausting. Here are some tips that may be useful for many of you traveling abroad in a plane!
1. Check the airline website.
There are a bunch of details to know, especially regarding luggage, since that varies from airline to airline. Also, make sure you’re aware of all of the policies listed on the site so that the airline doesn’t trick you for their own convenience! Stay informed and use the info on their website against them if they try to make you pay extra fees.
2. Keep your boarding pass, passport, and any other important documents on you at all times.
We don’t want you to freak out and break down if one is suddenly missing or out of reach. It’s best to have them handy!
3. Be polite to the Air Attendants.
They are literally serving around 200 people, with all sorts of demands and requests, which can sometimes be pretty annoying. So be polite and patient, you’ll be attended to as soon as possible.
4. Plan for time differences.
Keep in mind the upcoming time difference and plan your sleeping pattern accordingly. This is a good way to minimize jet lag!
5. Carry a couple of clothes in your carry on.
It’s good to have a pair or two on you, in case there are emergencies. Imagine if your flight was delayed or canceled at your layover airport, or your luggage didn’t end up arriving with you! That’s the worst part about traveling abroad in a plane.
