The Pro's and Con's of a Really Long Flight
If you’re looking to travel far away for a beautiful dream vacation, more than likely you’ll find yourself on a really long flight. We’ve been on enough really long flights to be able to give you the lowdown on the pros and cons. In this post we’re breaking it all down for you.
1. Your going to get to your destination.
This one may seem like an obvious silver-lining but it’s true! If you want to get to that gorgeous place you’ve been dreaming about forever, you’ve got to get on the flight. The best part-the really long flight gets you to the place you’ve wanted to go to for a really long time.
2. Your not going to have the hassles of airport baggage recheck on the way out.
We all know what a headache airport baggage check can be. Thankfully with really long flights, you don’t have to endure that on your way out!
3. There is so much entertainment on board planes now.
Sometimes I wait to see new movies until I know I have a long flight coming up. Having the opportunity to watch something I’ve been wanting to see for a while or even just enjoying a good classic makes time go by easier.
1. Its exhausting and you can definitely have anxiety if you are not use to long flights.
This one always tends to take new long flight flyers by surprise no matter how much I warn them. The best advice I can give is to try to get as much sleep as you can while you’re on-especially since you’re more than likely going to be experiencing some jet lag once you reach your destination.
2. Sometimes your seat choice or the people you are traveling near can make the flight longer.
While you can’t control the people around you, you can do your best with a good paid of headphones and trying to rest when you can.
No matter what the cons are, we’ve always come to the conclusion that the long flight is so worth it once you step off and get to explore an incredible new place! If you have any other questions about long flights, be sure to leave them in the comments.
