1. Noise-Canceling Headphones Are A Must

Airplanes are notoriously noisy places to be in, but with the latest range of noise-canceling headphones, we can at least try and block out the sound of that child crying in the seat behind us! Philips Fidelio NC-1 headphones delivers the best noise-canceling performance of any headphones in the market.

By using no less than four microphones inside and outside the ear cans, these headphones cleverly negate any external sound, so that you gain a greater immersion experience when listening to music, watching a movie or playing a game. And with its great foldaway design, it won’t take up much space in your carryon luggage either!

2. Don’t Forget Your Trusty Smartphone

Smartphones are now considered an essential part of the traveling experience. And although Wi-Fi on flights can have a frustratingly slow rollout, many of our streaming services now allow you to download movies, music and games so that you can enjoy them once airborne.

Even if you’re in the middle of a lengthy airport layover, your smartphone can turn that dismal waiting lounge into a glamorous casino thanks to the wide range of slots games accessible via New Jersey Online Casinos. And with Delta’s awesome app that helps you find lost luggage, it’s clear that smartphones have become essential travel buddies!

3. Bring A USB Battery Pack

But what use is your smartphone unless it’s charged, right? Well, if you’ve got a long voyage ahead, be sure to bring a portable USB battery pack, which will extend your smartphone’s battery life when you need it the most.

There are a great variety of USB battery packs to choose from, from credit-card sized packs for a quick top-up, to ones that are the size of a book and can last a whole weekend. Either way, it’ll stop you from having to rely on the in-flight entertainment!

4. Always Bring A Travel pillow

Finally, no matter how entertaining those casino games may be, every long-distance voyage gives us the opportunity to get a little shut-eye. And no long-haul flight is complete without a decent travel pillow! Similar to shopping for battery packs, there are a great variety of travel pillows available in the market, from inflatable options to deeply luxurious memory foam models. And some travel pillows even include earplugs and eye-masks, so it’ll surely help make that long flight feel like a dream!
