How can I avoid getting neck ache on long-haul flights?
One of the first things to remember when flying long-haul is the need to keep up your fluid intake. The very low humidity levels within the pressurised cabin have the effect of dehydrating the body. Water is the best option, as alcohol, tea and coffee have a diuretic effect that will lead to further dehydration. Keeping hydrated will benefit your circulation, and your muscle health.
Take time to make yourself comfortable from the start; use a travel pillow or neck cushion to support your head and neck. The Roamwild surround travel pillow is very good for this.
