Flight is considered as the most convenient and safest transport in Vietnam; however, there is something you should focus on traveling by flight.
1. Wearing contact lenses
Contact lenses will make your eyes drier. Furthermore, combined with dry air inside the aircraft, the eyes become more uncomfortable. That is why you should wear glasses when going on long flights. You also need to bring eye drops to look.
Your ear becomes jammed when the airplane takes off and land due to a pressure differential. The first thing people do is to try to keep your ears from being covered by ear muffs, but this does not work. You can still reduce your chance of having tinnitus by chewing gum, occasionally opening your mouth, inhaling and then exhaling the nose to allow air to escape to the ear.
3. Get on a plane with a stuffy nose
A stuffy nose creates higher pressure for your ears and can lead to injury. Of course, nobody asks you to stay home for the flu and stuffy nose, but in case you’re still traveling by plane, bring nose drops to use before the plane takes off and landing. In addition, sinusitis and osteoarthritis are very dangerous when traveling. If you can not cancel your flight, see your doctor for more specific advice.
When flying, your circulation will be slower and be sitting without movement will increase your chances of developing platelet thrombosis. Therefore, you should follow these steps to avoid danger
- stand up and walk a short distance in the passenger compartment
- Get comfortable clothes to move, take off your shoes while flying and practice some exercise occasionally such as the toes and toes.
5. Carbonated drinks
Carbonated beverages are another factor that increases the pressure and makes you uncomfortable. Carbonated drinks stimulate this process so you should not eat or drink such items to avoid bloating, such as brown bread, beans, and apples.
6. Choose seat at the end when you are sick
When there are signs of illness, you should not sit in the back of the aircraft as well as other means of transportation. In order to avoid feeling uncomfortable, you should choose the front seat or near the wing. The day before the flight is also a sensitive time, you pay attention to the food should not be fried, too much fat and do not drink alcohol.
7. Touch the surrounding objects
Airplanes are a haven for many types of bacteria. Passengers may leave behind dirty things in the back of a chair or at the table. In fact, not after the flight, the plane is also sanitary so bacteria can “migrate” to your hands. Therefore, you do not touch anything unnecessarily; if possible bring cotton sheets with alcohol to wipe.
8. Using smartphone on flight
Do not try to post photos while on the plane. Signals from your device may interfere with the navigation system’s antenna, so pilots may not be able to receive information from air traffic controllers.
9. Using headphone of flight
The headphones you hear when flying are not new, although they are always wrapped in plastic bags. Between flights, the used earphones will be cleaned and repackaged. However, this cleaning does not completely clean the headphones so using them will not be safe for your ears, bring yourself a headset to use when flying.
Besides these things, before traveling by flight you should refer to necessary and useful things for having the good trip. Furthermore, if you need more information, you don’t forget to visit Trip Ideas
10. Abuse of alcohol
Passengers should not abuse alcoholic beverages for a variety of reasons. First, airplanes have very dry air, which increases the water loss in the body. Second, alcohol makes oxygen saturated in the blood weaker, leading to drowsiness and drowsiness. There is also the opinion that people drunken faster alcohol when drinking alcohol. It is better not to drink alcohol before and during flight or to drink at least.
