Are you one of those who get on a plane asking for mercy? If for you it is a nightmare to fasten your belt and let yourself be carried around surfing the skies we have some tips to make the trip more bearable
1. Flying is safe, we promise
It´s the safest means of transportation in the world. In absolute terms, the comparison with others is ridiculous: according to statistics, the possibility of an aircraft having an accident is one of 2.5 million.
2. Do not think much about the trip until you are inside the plane
It does not make sense to torture yourself the days before. You may not have a better time during the flight, but at least you will not have a bad time before.
3. Find distractions
Books, movies (if it’s a short flight with no enternteinment once the belt signal is off you can take out your laptop or tablet), music or talking to your seatmate. Yes, even if you do not know him/her, you never know where you’ll find your next best friend.
4. Sit in the front
If there are turbulences, you´ll feel they´re less intense.
5. Ask for something to eat
Between the time you take to decide, order, delivery and the actual eating time, good part of the flight will have passed. If it usually helps you relax, ask for a glass of wine.
6. Think about why you travel and what you will do in your destination
If you are on an airplane, you travel to a place far enough to be worth the hustle. If you visit friends, family or just go on vacation, think about the things you will do when you arrive.
7. When you arrive, give yourself a whim
A local beer at arrival or an auto-gift, this will help to associate flying to a positive experience.
Dare to do it! The world is full of wonderful places and time to visit them flies by!
