Can we all agree that a long haul flight is kind of the worst? We’re not talking about the luxurious, first-class suite where they serve endless amounts of caviar and Dom. We’re talking about back-of-the-plane, people snoring loudly, getting knocked with the drink cart, economy class.

Sure, most of us don’t mind this on short flights, but for a flight lasting longer than 8 hours? It definitely puts a damper on travel.

But today on the podcast, we’ve got you covered. We’re giving you all the details on how to survive a long haul flight including a great resource that we use for picking seats every time so that we get a good seat on the plane, how to create your own relaxing zone in your seat, how to deal with flight anxiety, and more!
