When you’re about to board an evening flight to cross an ocean for the first time, and the flight is delayed an hour or so, partake of the adult beverages. Once you’re in the air, partake of more adult beverages … and water, lots of water.
Seat selection is key!
Window or aisle seats are preferable. If available, choose early and spend the extra money for the double seats. I never want to be in the middle seat again. On the way there wasn’t so bad because one of the two unsold seats was next to me! I wasn’t so lucky on the way home. I had an arm rest hogger next to me.
That’s it! The planning was over. The doing was about to begin!
