Get Comfortable on Your Next Plane Ride with These 3 Tips

Everyone loves to travel. No, that may not be necessarily accurate. Perhaps what we enjoy is arriving at new places, discover new cultures, and the sense of adventure that comes with traveling. The process of traveling, on the other hand, may not be as enjoyable especially when you have to be confined to a single space for hours on end. Flying is no different - the dry air, the cramped seats, the fluctuating temperatures etc. We can’t wait until they figure out teleportation, but in the meantime, flying is the most advanced means of transportation we have. Our New York transportation service has dealt with air travelers for several years now, and along the way, we have picked up a few tips on how to make your flight experiences a little more pleasant.

First, you may want to consider employing the services of our LaGuardia airport shuttle for all your airport transportation needs. One of the most stressful parts of air travel is the risk of missing a flight or being delayed in traffic while your flight departure time draws closer. With our professional chauffeurs at your service, however, you never have to worry about this; our professionally trained personnel will transfer you promptly and safely to and from the airport, ensuring that you arrive well ahead of time on your way to the airport and that someone is there waiting to transfer you back home when you get back.


Before purchasing your ticket, check online and book a seat that you are most comfortable with. Some people prefer the window seat so they can peek outside and lean their head on the wall as they sleep; others prefer the aisle seat so that they can walk around and stretch their legs every now and again. Whatever you prefer, make sure that your preferred seat is available before purchasing a ticket. In case your preferred seat is not available you can always book the next flight; it’s a small sacrifice for a better air travel experience.


When it comes to air travel, one of the most important things to do is to stay hydrated. Additionally, stay away from alcohol and caffeinated drinks, which both impair your ability to sleep and dehydrate your body. Therefore, grab a large bottle of water before you board the plane and keep sipping on it for the duration of your flight. Furthermore, drinking water will increase your bathroom trips, which will give you an opportunity to stretch your legs and keep your body from cramping up as is the case when you are seated in the same position of too long.


Let’s be honest, sleeping in a seated position in a cramped plane is not exactly easy. When you don’t get enough rest on your flight, there is a high chance that you will experience the effects of jetlag once you get to your destination. If you have trouble falling asleep on planes, we recommend that you go the pharmaceutical way and take a few sleeping pills to aid you in the process.
