After 5-6 hours of mediocre mid-air sleep, it’s pretty much impossible to walk off the plane looking anywhere near presentable. If you’re a champion upright sleeper, then well, overnight flights were made for you. But for the rest of us, the red-eye is synonymous with misery. And that's the problem. You most likely need to look presentable right off the plane.
We hope these tips can help you get through your next red-eye experience and arrive looking more well-rested and functional.
Get on the plane, well prepared
What does it mean to be well prepared for a flight? It differs from one passenger to another but in general, you should have a prep kit that includes -
Step away from fancy clothes
Comfort is key when you're running to gates and cramming yourself into tiny seats unless of course, you're in business or first class. No, we’re not suggesting a pyjama-clad walk of shame to catch your next flight, but choosing a flight outfit built around comfort can go far in helping you sleep once you’re onboard. Try some comfy jeans, a tee, and a hoodie.
Layering your clothes
Especially during long-haul flights, or flights from Singapore (because it's summer all year round), you'll most likely sweat buckets and freeze solid the moment you touch down. By layering pieces, you'll be able to take them on or off easily. And even better, you can mix and match pieces for a lot more outfits (say, if you're the kind that likes to dress up).
Minimize carry-on baggage
Struggling with a heavy luggage full of things you don't need? Not cute. Prepare a checklist and go through it - do you really need them? It's best to have a light-weight carry-on backpack or even better, check-in everything if that's an option.
Being cramped up in a tiny seat for hours is an absolute nightmare but what's worst is the after-effect like backaches or cramped legs. Make sure to move around to get the blood flowing. It's best to get the aisle seat if you're one who experiences muscle spasms often so that you do not have to bother your neighbour who's fast asleep.
