This is how you should sleep on a plane to avoid a bad back, stiff neck or swollen legs

sleepingplane

You don,t have to leave a flight with a stiff neck and swollen feet. There are several ways to keep good posture on a plane. Most important things to know are where to put your head, how to keep your blood circulating and the best ways to support your back.

While it’s important to put smaller bags under the seat in front to save space in the overhead cabins. It’s also very important to keep a decent amount of leg room. Make sure to leave some room around your feet for stretching out and to keep the circulation flowing in your legs.

You have to keep your joints supple and circulation moving. A good way to keep your joints supple and circulation moving is to take a loo break. This short walk to and from the toilet will do wonders for your body.

Plane seats are tailored to support your back. Make use of the curves in the chair and allow it to support your lower back, instead of sitting forward.

Make use of inflatable pillow so you can get to sleep by using them differently to the traditional way. You can either use the inflatable pillow for back support at the bottom of the spine, or by putting the tray table down and placing the pillow on top, in order to rest your head. Put the pillow on the tray if you are planning on using a laptop, so you aren’t looking down at the screen

cathay

Cathay Pacific announced four additional non-stop flights between San Francisco and Hong Kong, using the new Airbus A350-900, featuring a refreshed Business Class cabin. This will be the airline’s first A350 deployed in the USA and second in North America. At the same time, flights to Los Angeles will be reduced from 28 to 21 per week. These changes come on top of previously announced additional services that will operate to Vancouver and Boston from late March.

Cathay Pacific Senior Vice President, Americas, Philippe Lacamp, said, “San Francisco is ready for a third daily Cathay Pacific flight to Hong Kong, and we are delighted to meet this growing customer demand. We are particularly pleased to be able to use this additional service to operate our new, state-of-the-art Airbus A350 aircraft, the first operated by Cathay Pacific in the USA. Since launching our first non-stop service from SFO to Hong Kong over 30 years ago, the San Francisco Bay Area has been a key market in our global network. San Francisco is an ideal market to debut our newest aircraft, the A350. Not only is it the quietest among the aircraft types in its class, but it is also 25% more fuel efficient with a corresponding reduction in emissions. The A350 has also provided an opportunity for Cathay Pacific to prove itself again as a leader in airline eco-innovation. The cabin carpets and passengers’ blankets are made from recycled plastic and nylon, including plastic bottles and salvaged fishing nets that are otherwise a hazard for marine life.”

Cathay Pacific’s new A350-900 have some really good features. Design of the cabin features has been carefully considered to give passengers the best sleeping experience, the best entertainment, and to offer them more control over how they want to use the space. Aircraft offers more space and comfort, a quiet cabin, panoramic windows and LED mood lighting, contributing to a more comfortable and relaxing journey in all cabin classes.

The A350-900 Business Class seats are build on the success of the airline’s award-winning long-haul Business Class product. On side of fully-flat bed, new features includes extra stowage space within easy reach and the personal service offered by a “Do Not Disturb” and “Wake-up Call” function in the entertainment system.

Start Date: from Winter 2017

9 Quick No’s During a Flight

 

What to wear? The rules of fashion are bit different in-flight than the ground. When flying up to 35,000 feet in the air in a metal fish (planes always remind me of big fish), choose comfort over the fashion.  Of course, you cannot look shabby. Dress well but make sure that you do not opt for clothing which might cause discomfort during the flight. Look like a traveler that you are rather than a fashion faux pas in distress.

These 9 No’s you certainly  should not want to wear during a flight;

Unbreathable Fabric :

Avoid fabric which do not let air pass through them. Like leather, nylon or rubber material. They do not let air circulate and keep sweat from evaporating.

You will certainly feel not too fashionable all hot and sweaty in your synthetic clothes now will you?

Sleek Stilettos and High Heels:

Air ports are busy places. People sprint rather than walk. Though this point is obvious still I see some women teetering in high heels. Comfy shoes make brisk walking easy at the airport.

Packing pointer – wearing your sneakers may save you up some packing space and weight as well.

Constricting Clothing:

Avoid tight clothing especially. Deep Vein Thrombosis causes dangerous blood clots in veins which is fatal. Long periods of sitting increase the risk of DVT as well as tight clothes. Be it your socks or undergarments even. Avoid them if they leave marks.

Lenses:

The plane air is dry. Occasionally, humidity is 1% even. Contacts can cause discomfort because of the dry cabin air. Your eyes can dry up so keep a pair of glasses to change into in such a case. Also don’t forget to bring moisturizing eye drops.

Dress Codes:

Airlines do have dress codes. Dress inappropriately always. If you cannot wear it to a family dinner you probably should not wear it on a flight where personal spaces get overlapped.

Tees splashed with obscenities or offensive message, too short or plunging dresses are a big no-no, some people have even been kicked out of the plane for that.

Sprays and Perfumes:

Strong smells are  also a big no. No matter how expensive or fancy your perfume is, other passengers can find it offensive. Some people can have immediate headaches caused by scents. Just avoid it all together and focus on hygiene. If you have good hygiene and have a bit of anti-perisperant you should be all set.

 

Complex Shoes:

I have travelled a lot and the variety of shoes I see always surprise me. Remember you need to be able to quickly take them off during security checking so stick to sneakers or sandals that you can slip on and off easily. You also want to be able to quickly take them of or on mid-flight in case you want to take a quick stroll up and down the aisle, use the bathroom, or if your feet get cold. Avoid shoes with too many straps, buckles, zips, laces, etc.

Ease Yourself:

Aircraft lavatories are tricky and tight places. So getting out of a bodysuit, wrap tops or dress is trouble. Avoid long pants and skirts too which may graze the washroom floor causing you to feel doubtful. Keep it simple and comfortable.

What Benefits Business Class Flights Have For Business Travelers

For business travelers, it is extremely important to be flexible and to have all the amenities they need and at the right price too. Economy class is cheaper, but it can’t provide the services, and conveniences business travelers need. You can’t take a lot of baggage, and you don’t earn good mileage bonuses. First-class tickets, on the other hand, can cost twice as much as a business-class ticket, but offer similar amenities and not a lot more mileage bonus. At Sunline Travels, we know how important cheap and discounted Business Class flights for business travelers and what amenities they need. That is why we have a great selection of flights that will fit the needs of even the most demanding business traveler, and at an unbeatable price.

Business Travelers Can Continue Their Work Even During a Flight

Above all else, Business Class lounges are carefully designed to allow business travelers perform their duties and continue their work even during their flight. Businesses often send their employees to distant countries and getting there could take quite a while. That is why it is important not to waste this precious time and ensure you will have a surrounding that boosts your productivity. Business Class lounges feature numerous amenities, such as additional spacious desks, USB ports and power supplies to facilitate the work of all business travelers. And in today’s fast-paced world these amenities are a necessity for every business traveler.

All the Amenities You Need

Although various airlines offer different amenities and services, almost all have a business class that shares many luxurious features offered by the first class, but at a much lower price. They usually come with a special flat bed seat, all the food, and beverages your employee might need, and plenty of other amenities. In addition, at Sunline Travels we have a great selection of cheap business class flights that will help business travelers get to their destination safely and comfortably, and at the same time will save them a lot of money.

A More Cost-Effective Way to Earn Mileage Bonuses

Another great advantage of business class flights is the amount of mileage bonuses travelers can earn. Usually, a first-class ticket would cost you almost twice as much as business class would. However, you only earn miles at a 150% rate, while business ticket earns you just 25% less mileage bonuses. In addition, the cheap business class tickets you can get at Sunline Travels make purchase of first class seat even less cost effective.
