Book an early flight
Pick the first flight of the day if your schedule allows. It’s most likely to be on time, meaning you won’t end up with the stress of long delays. Plus, it is the most likely to have been freshly cleaned. Don’t make these annoying airport mistakes next time you fly.
Pick the right seat
You can only book the exit row seat once you’re at the airport, so arrive two hours early to request the seat change. In case the exit row is already taken, pick an aisle seat when you buy your tickets so you can get up as often as you want without bothering your neighbor. While waiting for your flight, use the extra time to power walk around the airport and get some exercise in. These little travel mistakes add extra stress to your vacation.
Boost your immune system before you leave
Sitting in stale air with hundreds of other passengers leaves your body notoriously vulnerable to the germs floating around. This is how traveling on a plane can affect your body.
