With a couple of six-plus hour trips coming up in the next few months, I’ve been taking notes on how to survive long flights.

When it comes to surviving a long flight and the ensuing jet lag, we've suggested downloading some podcasts (or TV shows/movies), bringing a book and remembering to get up and move every now and then.
