Books and Gadgets
Flying long haul is a good time to catch up on that new album you’ve been wanting to listen to, or that book you’ve been trying to read for the last eight months. It’s also a great time to give the brain a bit of a workout with puzzles and games. Pro tip: If you’re flying Philippine Airlines, don’t forget to download the MyPAL Player app to get access to their movie, TV and music library using your phone or tablet — you even get 30 minutes of free WiFi.
A ‘Luxury’ Item
Be kind to yourself and bring a small thing that will make you happy — this could be a tiny bottle of sriracha for the bland plane food you’re going to eat, or a fidget spinner to calm your flight anxiety down, or even your very own cocktail kit.
