What should I keep in mind for my first air travel flight?

 What should I keep in mind for my first air travel flight?

Are you getting ready for your first domestic or international air travel.  You should be careful about a few things:

1. Relax, nothing to panic or be concerned of. You'll enjoy the flight.

2. Before leaving for the airport, ensure that you have the Must Have items. These include flight ticket (printed / digital), Govt ID proof (some airports don't accept PAN card as a valid ID), Money, other stuff critical for the purpose of your travel (documents, etc).
Everything else is Should Have, don't panic if you forgot to bring along the other items.

3. Travel light. Also distribute your luggage smartly across cabin and check-in bags. Consider the weight restriction put by the airline. You'll be charged for extra luggage weight.

4. Pack all Must Have stuff in your cabin bag so that they are always handy with you. Also stuff that makes you comfortable should be in the cabin bag - headphones, chargers, books, etc. Everything else goes in the check-in bag.

5. Reach the airport about 2 hours before the flight time. This being the first flight, you might need time to figure out process, explore the airport. Also, early check-in gives you the opportunity to select the desired seat.

6. Select the window seat, most preferred for most fliers.

7. Eat as usual, before leaving home, at the airport, during the flight - get your food or buy it - anytime. Don't remain empty tummy for a long time as this might spoil your experience. Also, keep drinking water. Cabin is kept at low humidity and your body loses water faster.

8. You might/might not experience pain in your ears due to air pressure change. That's normal. Ask for cotton or ear plugs if you feel like.

9. Feel free to call for assistance at the airport or during the flight. People are paid to help you so don't think that you should not.

10. Share your first flight experience here as comment and keep sharing your own experiences with others you might need it!

Happy journey!

Top 10 Cheapest Countries To Visit in 2019 - 2020

Every travel lover starts planning their trips for the vacation in this and next year. We know, the cheaper the destination, the longer you can afford to stay – or the better your travel lifestyle can be while visiting. In some countries, $50 / night barely affords you a hostel dorm bed, while in others that can pay for a luxury villa! This year we experienced the full scale of the travel-value index. We left Canggu, Bali in Indonesia, where we had a 2 bedroom private pool villa for $50 / night, and visited Japan where that same $50 barely afforded us a double bed on the floor of a small room. 2018 is sure to be an amazing year for travellers and if you’re already planning your travels for the new year, then this post is for you. Some of these countries are cheaper now than ever, largely due to drops in their local currency on the global market, or due to a recent lack of tourism. We would never write a post to revel in low prices at the cost of economic struggle, but by visiting the…

How to book a cheap flight ticket?

1. Keep your searches top secret You're not crazy for thinking that a flight price has changed after searching it a few times in your web browser. Based on the cookies in your browser, flight prices do increase when a particular route is repeatedly searched, as the site wants to scare you into booking the flight quickly before prices get even higher. Always search for flights in incognito or private browsing mode to see the lowest prices. In Google Chrome or Safari, incognito is enabled by hitting Command (or “Control” if using PC), Shift, “N”.
