Get an aisle seat
If I can’t get a seat in the emergency row, I always opt for an aisle seat. Even though I’m only 5’1’’, the extra room allows me to stretch my legs diagonally. So what if the food cart chops off a foot or two. I’ll only be an inch shorter. The only drawback about sitting in the aisle seat is if you’re seatmate has an abnormally small bladder.
Go vegan or vegetarian
Do you turn into The Hulk when you’re hungry? Inform your airline that you’re a vegan or vegetarian. Those who request vegan/vegetarian meals are usually the first to be served on a flight. While everyone is enviously eying your plate of food, remember to politely inhale your meal. Just be warned, the vegan meals don’t come with dessert.
Support your lower back
I never understood why the back seats on airplanes always concave in. The lack of back support can sometimes be unbearable, especially if I have a long flight. To remedy this, place an unopened water bottle between your lower back and the back of your seat. It will help give the support your need for a much more pleasant flight.
Conquer motion sickness
Lemon does the trick! When you start feeling that queasiness in your belly, take out your sliced lemons and suck on it. The acidity in the citric acid will help settle your stomach.
