1. Upgrade:

The best among the flight tips. One simple way to try for an upgrade: Check how full your flight is, which you can do directly on your airline’s website. Some really savvy travelers go further than that and specifically search for tickets on emptier flights to have a better chance at getting upgraded.

2. Keep your mind busy:

Whether you buy a magazine at the airport, grab the local newspaper, bring an e-reader or haul along a 2000 page novel–reading, this is a flight tip that will definitely help pass the time. Even if you’re not a regular reader, we promise you that if you open up a book on an airplane, you will suddenly be on page 56 without even realizing it. We would suggest a travel themed book to get yourself in the traveling spirit. it’s probably better to read a book with a plot to keep you captivated, but you could also bring along a guide book of your upcoming destination.

3. Stop thinking and play brain dead:

Sit upright, close your eyes, and concentrate all of your energy on visualizing a quiet, peaceful place. We recommend painting an image of a large waterfall in your head. With enough training, you’ll be able to forget everything but the waterfall, and this will rid your mind of any stress and unease. Breathe in and out slowly, taking deep breaths for 15 minutes in between 1 hour intervals.

4. Reflect on the learnings of wise men:

Recall, for example, the famous line “Wise men say only fools rush in. But I can’t help falling in love with you.” So then is he a fool or a wise man? But then why does this saying go “Wise men learn more from fools than fools from the wise.”? So what’s a fool and who’s wise and is there really a fool?Lucky you! You still have hours to riddle this.

5. Move onto the wisdom of other great men:

Ponder the meaning of life. And why that if you are but dust, have to suffer the long hours being suspended thousands of feet from the ground going through this misery only to reach a destination you wanted to go to.

6. Go easy on yourself and this too shall pass:

It might take some time, but you’ll surely get there.
