8. Create some space for your legs.
You may think that it’s more convenient to keep your belongings close to you during a flight. But, if you cram all your hand-luggage bags under the seat in front of you, you won’t have enough room for your legs.
To prevent deep vein thrombosis, it’s crucial to keep the space by your feet free. So next time, try to reduce the number of your onboard personal items to a minimum and store them in the overhead bin.
7. Pack some extra snacks.
Plane food is usually low in protein and high in carbohydrates. So if you care about your health or just want to stick to your own eating schedule, сonsider taking your own snacks on board. Take a baggy of almonds or dried apricots, carrot or cucumber sticks, apples, bananas, or protein bars — choose whatever you like and chew them when passing the time.
