Travel experts reveal the 3 big mistakes passengers make on long-haul flights – and you've done at least one of them | The Sun

WHILE a holiday to somewhere hot and far away can be tempting, many may be put off by the long flight.

And travel experts have revealed some of the big mistakes you could be making on long-haul flights – and how to avoid them.

Wearing uncomfy clothes

Even if you want to look nice on the plane, you might want to opt for comfy clothes over stylish ones.

Phil Dengler, co-founder of The Vacationer told Yahoo: "Since you will be sitting in the same seat for six or more hours, it is essential to be as comfortable as possible.”

So things like jeans and coats are out, while stretchy and soft clothes are best, so jumpers and leggings.

And when it comes to shoes, opt for sandals or trainers you can loosen – just don't go barefoot.

Kayak's Paul Jacobs explained: "Sitting near the restroom may sound convenient, but it’s never fun to be in that row when a line forms outside the restroom.

Instead, he said the best thing to do is sit far away and use it as an excuse to walk around and stretch your legs.

Here is why it's important to keep moving on flights.

And there is nothing worse than being on a long flight with nothing else to eat.
