“How To Survive A 14-hour Plane Ride”—Ask Larry


My wife and I recently returned from a trip to Australia—a 7,416 mile long haul one way. Some things we learned:

  • Calm your mind and chill out. Prepare yourself mentally and remind yourself not to “stress out” during the long haul.
  • Bring a book, magazines, iPod, laptop—whatever—to kill some time.
  • Wear comfortable clothing. Bring a sweater. Kick off your shoes and put on heavy socks.
  • Get up, stretch and move around the cabin. Leg blood clots can happen to older travelers.
  • Get an aisle seat. Avoid the middle seat. Some people like my wife prefer the window seat but harder to get up and about.
  • Bring your own water bottle and snacks. Drink lots of water and don’t overeat eat or drink alcohol.
  • Take the late night flight from SFO so you’ll arrive in Sydney in the morning—Aussie time. Stay awake all day and take a long outdoors walk. Go to bed Aussie time.
  • On long haul trips—the destination is the journey.
