Ever since October 2018, Singapore Airlines has operated the longest flight in the world with its 19-hour service from Singapore to Newark (New York).

This flight dethroned the Qantas service from Perth, Australia, to Heathrow, London, that now takes about 17 hours.

If you’ve ever been on a long-haul flight, you’ll know that it can be challenging to keep yourself rested and occupied for that many hours, especially if you’re not flying first-class.

If you’re not careful, you might step off the flight looking like you’ve just wrestled a bear.

While some people revel in the thought that they have all those uninterrupted hours to catch up on sleep, work, a book or movies, others dread the idea of being cooped up for so long.

If you’re the latter, check out these 5 tips on how to make your flight more bearable.

Since you’ll be in those clothes for over 24 hours - from the time you leave your home till you reach your destination - you’ll want to make sure that you’re wearing a comfortable outfit.

The goal is comfortably casual chic with loose-fitting tops and bottoms, and have a jacket with you in case it gets cold.

Loose-fitting clothes aren’t only for your comfort, they also don’t restrict blood flow, which could be an issue when you’re sitting for so long.
