4 Hacks To Take The Hassle Out Of Flying

Wednesday, June 13, 2018
There’s nothing more amazing than travelling to a new country and discovering everything that it has to offer. It’s just a shame that you’ve got to deal with the hassle of flying to get there. Airports are an absolute nightmare, arriving at a ridiculous time in the morning and then spending hours waiting in queues at security only to be stuck on a plane for ages. Sometimes, it’s enough to put you off completely, especially when it comes to long haul flights. But you shouldn’t let the hassle of the flight put you off visiting the places you’ve always dreamed of going, just use these simple tips to make it a lot easier. 

Get Your Own Jet

This is a pretty drastic move but it’s the easiest way to take the hassle out of flying completely. If you’re wondering, what is the fastest jet in the world? It’s the Cessna Citation X. Faster than any commercial flight you can get and a whole lot easier as well. You won’t have to wait around at the airport at all, you can just turn up when you want to go and set off. You can also go whenever you like, you don’t have to work around the airline’s schedule. It’s going to cost you a lot of money but if you can afford it and you hate flying, buying a share in your own private jet is the easiest way to make flying stress free. Just make sure to keep up with maintenance, as this will be your responsibility. You'll need everything from ACF-50 to vibration meters, but you can hire an engineer and a mechanic to do each task for you. Unless you're an expert yourself, it's best left to the pros.

Download The Airline App

If you can’t afford to shell out for a private jet of your own, you’ll have to make do with a commercial flight and do what you can to make it more bearable. It seems like there’s an app for everything these days and flying is no exception. Most airlines, even the budget ones, have an app that you should download before you travel. You’ll be able to get your boarding passes etc. on there and you’ll also be able to get up to date information on the flight and whether it’s delayed etc. It saves you having to dig around in your bags to find boarding passes and you won’t have to struggle to hear announcements about delays over the intercom.

Request A Special Meal

Airplane food is always going to be a big disappointment but if you’re on a long haul flight, you need to eat something. If you’re going to be eating tasteless food, you might as well get it while it’s still hot and avoid waiting in line. The easiest way to do it is order a specialist meal like kosher or vegetarian, even if those aren’t your dietary requirements. The majority of airlines put those meals out before they start doing the rest of them so you’ll always be first in line.

Ask For An Upgrade

Buying first class tickets is often too expensive but sometimes airlines will upgrade people if there are seats free. But the only people that are likely to get those upgrades are the ones that ask for it. It’s a bit of a longshot but if you ask, you never know.

These simple tricks can help you make flying an absolute breeze, you’ll never dread traveling again.
