Everyone knows Boeing and Airbus, some can also list Concordes. Yes, these companies are the biggest players in the industry.

Many people fear turbulences and grab their seats firmly with a slightest shake during the flight. But it’s nothing to be afraid of! Turbulences are absolutely normal and they occur because of the sudden shifts of winds, usually near specific types of clouds. The pilots know about them but it’s physically impossible to avoid it. Well, when you are driving a car you don’t panic for every pot-hole you encounter in the road, don’t you? The same goes with turbulence, these are just the aircraft pot-holes in the air corridor. And they will not make the plane fall, seriously! Even bigger turbulence is not an issue. When the pilot asks you to seat down and fasten your seatbelts, it’s for your own protection. The worse thing that can happen to you is hurting your head if you fell over walking down the aisle.
Travelling is so popular and common nowadays that there are even companies manufacturing only travel buddies stuff and equipment that would help you go through few hours of flight smoothly. If you like to catch some sleep during your flight, a blindfold is the best solution – it keeps the light away from your eyes, so it’s easier for you to fall asleep and the sleep itself is much more refreshing. There are many pillows and such items, making the journey more comfortable. But there is one thing that comes really handy today – powerbank. Remember to charge it and your phone or e-reader will be on as long as the flight continues.
Of course, we’re talking about comfortable and convenient way of packing, not a “the one and only” type. If you keep your electronic stuff easy to grab, it would be easier for you to go through the security check or “fish” for your stuff during your flight. Documents should be stored in similar way but you should be especially sure that they are safe and out of reach of other people. Remember that there is a fluid limit for hand luggage, usually 100ml bottles maximum.
