Don’t panic, of course she will! Stephanie returns this morning [Monday 7/28] into Kansas City about 8:00am after the overnight long-haul from Seattle and her wedding photographer workshop. If you are at the airport, wave!
Now, if you have ever flown these all night flights, you have felt the pain the next day. (“COFFEE! COFFEE! COFFEE!”) But, really, they don’t have to be a killer. Follow CNN’s 3 simple steps to survive the red-eye flight.
1) Choose the right seat
Window seats are best for catching some sleep, as there is something to lean against. You also don’t risk being woken by a neighbor clambering past to get to the toilet.
Seats at the front of the plane are the quietest and you are the quickest off. (ask for the bulkhead, more legroom for spreading out and getting comfortable if you have long legs like me).
The worst seats are on the back row, as often they don’t recline. (Nevermind, you always get stuck behind the annoying businessman who tried to get his two suitcases worth of trade show ‘goodies’ crammed into his carry-on and now can’t get it out of the overhead without the jaws of life so all of us are held hostage… – yes, I feel better now.)
2) Bag it
Travel pillows may be awkward to carry, but they are proven at improving sleep by supporting the head.
3) Perfect timing
Try to resist the urge to nap beforehand. The idea is to acclimatize to the new time zone as quickly as possible. So if you arrive in the morning, try to push through to bed time. (Believe me, it will help the next day)
Skip coffee in the airport and especially when the trolley comes round during the flight.
That’s it, I’m off to pick up Stephanie! We all can’t wait until she gets back. She’s a trooper, a good nap and she will be good to go.
