4 Travel Tips from Virgin Atlantic’s Flight Attendants

 

T+L dropped in on Virgin Atlantic’s flight-attendant training and gleaned four travel pointers you can use, too.

Foods to Avoid: Onions, cauliflower, cabbage, and carbonated beverages can make you feel bloated at high altitudes.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate: Drink three quarts of water: one before, one during, and one after your flight. Also bring a facial spray with essential oils (plain water is drying).

Healthy Hint: Polyphenol-rich fruit juices (cranberry; pomegranate) reduce the risk of blood clots. Ditto oily fish.

Don’t Forget: The night before you check out, place your shoes with your passport and wallet in the hotel’s safe. You’ll never forget anything in the safe again!
