Compression tights had been mentioned to me before but I hadn't take much notice so thanks for that Pritch
The other thing that was mentioned was aspirin!?
The flight is actually 7.5 hours from Newcastle, England to Dubai, then a further 22 hours to Christchurch, 'bouncing' in Sydney for some fuel. I'm a lousy sleeper anywhere but my own bed so the plan is a lot of reading/listening to music. There is in flight tv, but ho good it is I don't know. I'm flying with Fly Emirates who apparently have a good rep, and I've been told that the female flight attendants are not so bad either
dalai, I'd never thought about the food thing. Damn! Next time... it's a really good idea. Come to think of it, everyone seems to be coming up with good ideas. I feel like I haven't lived with all you frequent flyers around
Fuchs, you'll be seeing your chainring quite soon
