Want to arrive at your far-away destination completely relaxed? No problem – even after a long-haul flight! Today we’ve got some tips on the perfect travel outfit for you, a million miles away from the unfashionable jogging suit. Comfortable and chic: that’s what works!
The perfect outfit for a long-haul flight
Let’s start with your feet! They want to be comfortable, and above all warm, during a long flight too! So get hold of some comfortable, and above all flat, shoes you can slip in and out of now and again. At some security checks around the world, you have to take off your shoes every time you go through the scan. For this reason, you shouldn’t go without socks – or have a pair close to hand in your luggage, at least.
There are trousers and there are trousers… Some of these undoubtedly fall into the category of tight and uncomfortable – you should do without these on long-haul flights. But you don’t have to be wearing the complete opposite either – the jogging bottoms – to travel by air just as comfortably as if you were sitting at home on the sofa. So if you’re expecting a flight time of several hours, it’s better to choose chinos, jeggings and cloth trousers.
The onion look! In between your trip out to the airport, check-in, boarding, the flight, picking up your luggage and actually arriving at your long-awaited destination, you may be looking not just at many hours of travel, but also a variety of climate zones, ranging from damp-hot through to very cold. That’s why you can help yourselves with the ‘onion look’, in the shape of a comfortable, longer T-shirt, a cardigan over it, and another jumper in your hand luggage in case of emergencies. On top of all that, we recommend you pack a large scarf as well, which will not only keep your neck warm, but can also be used as a blanket. Whatever you do, leave anything at home that pinches or is too tight!
What else should you have in your hand luggage?
Travelling can be also stressful, yes – but if you pack well, you’ll arrive refreshed. That’s why an outfit to change into should definitely be part of your hand luggage. If you want to be particularly economical with space in achieving this, you should simply roll up the items of clothing. As well as this, take another small container – no larger than 100 ml, remember – and fill it with refreshing and moisturising facial spray, which can be refilled regularly during your trip.
For entertainment above the clouds, we recommend you immerse yourselves in the world of music. Still looking for the right playlist? Then read our Community article about your favourite songs above the clouds. Noise Cancelling Headphones ensure an extra portion of relaxation and are available to travellers in the new Premium Economy Class and our Business Class.
When packing, of course, it’s also important to how heavy (and large) your luggage is allowed to be: for Economy Class and Premium Economy Class, you can take a suitcase, rucksack or bag weighing a maximum of 8 kg on board with you. In Business Class, you can even take two! These pieces of luggage must not exceed 55 x 40 x 23 cm in size, however. For more detailed information and exceptions, click here. Enough space for the second outfit!
