What to wear on a flight:

  • The aisles of your plane are no place for a fashion parade. Layer yourself up with comfortable clothes and take a sweater as it can get quite cool in the cabin. Enclosed, flat shoes are also a sensible choice.
  • Most travelers are aware of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clotting condition caused by long periods of sitting. There are numerous ways to minimize your risk. Wear compression socks or tights, stay hydrated and keep your legs and feet moving. Do a few laps of the cabin or try out some exercises in your seat.

  • All your electronic gadgets, including your phone and tablet, are also required to be scanned.
  • Any gels or liquids, such as hair oil or hand cream, that you want to take on board must be no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). Also, everything must fit inside a quart-size (one liter), zip-lock bag.
