Flying for the First Time? Here Are Some Obvious Things You Need to Know Before Getting on an Airplane
Flying for the first time could be exciting and nerve wrecking, sometimes we have to face our fears and just do it. We asked 5 real Reddit users who are frequent flyers for tips on how to deal with flying for the first time.
plus4dbu: I am very much an elitist when it comes to air travel. I fly internationally frequently and get all the perks when it comes with that. This is harsh but let me save you some embarrassment: calm the fuck down and go have a seat when you get to your gate. Even when they start the boarding process that’s still not time for you to get up yet. The boarding process goes like this (for most airlines):
TalkTeddyToMe: Don’t wear jeans. As simple as this sounds, tight clothes restrict the bloodflow in an already cramped space. Just wear something loose fitting and comfortable, you aren’t there to impress anyone.
Also, wear layers. It’s cold as fuck in that pressurized cabin and you want to be able to stay warm. If you find yourself too warm, you can always take off some layers. Comfort is everything when you are stuck in a 3 hour fart cabin.
YourMoms_A_Throwaway:Stretch your arms before your flight. You don’t want to wear them out from all the flapping.
Aerron:Don’t feel like you have to talk to the person next to you. Smile, say hi, put in your earbuds and read something.
