Traveling by flight may be quite a hassle. Making there early so that you can go through the security, delays, layovers, gate changes or cancellations. Not to mention the scary turbulence and airline food that may make you wonder why didn't you make a road trip instead. If you travel by airplane frequently, you get used to the stuff.
But you will be surprised to know that there are some secrets to a comfortable and pleasing airplane journey you are yet to discover.

Seems like a handy place to store your book or a packet of snacks, but it's the favorite spot for used tissues and is basically full of germs.
Even if the tray seems clean, it is full of germs like bacteria, so bring your own antibacterial wipes and give it a clean before you use them.
Just think of all those people who have put their grimy fingers on those pages.
The obvious stench. Other than that probably the people waiting to take a washroom selfie or use the washroom.
Nothing is safe on airplanes so better bring your antibacterial wipes or sanitizers with you.
Airlines often add extra salt in their meals because the altitude, pressure, and environment confuse your taste buds. Bring your own healthy snacks instead and eat when you are hungry.
Using airline pillows is so gross. They might be soaked in drool and dead skin cells of those who dosed on them before you.
Just keep your hands, hair, feet and things like that to yourself. This way you will keep your germs contained and also making things comfortable for your neighbors.
The onboard water available, used to make this kind of beverages is usually full of bacteria. It's better to spend some bucks of your own before boarding.
