This is what goes into my carry on luggage for a long haul flight (usually London to Melbourne). I use a Samsonite carry on suitcase. For which I have a personalised travel tag which I love, thanks to The Daily Edited. My laptop and phone which has a personalised cover. I always pack a usb phone charger as well because most planes now will have a port for you to charge your phone in. My camera, if you sit in a window seat you could fly over amazing views and take off and landing can provide a site of a city from above, also I don’t like to put valuables or breakables in my checked luggage. My Kiki K passport holder and my glasses ( I have to be able to see the signs).
I am a law student so I pack study books and pen. I also always pack a book to read, in flight entertainment gets blanked when the pilot or flight attendants want your attention and if you are flying on a long haul flight you have potentially heard the safety instructions once or twice already and sometimes its just nice to read instead of watch TV.
Toiletries I like to pack deodorant a mini moisturiser from The Body Shop as my skin gets dry when I fly, a lip balm, a hair brush, my favourite BB cream in case I have to see someone I know and a roll on perfume, because everyone wants to smell nice.
On the plane I wear my super comfy nike trainers, a jumper, and a pair of crepe pants. The one in the picture are by Gorman, I also have another pair by witchery which are black and have an elastic waist so are even more comfortable. The trousers are a tapered fit so even though they are comfortable they are also somewhat stylish. Finally my Uniqlo puffer vest which is great for a multitude of reasons.
1. If you are on a long haul flight you are potentially going from summer to winter or vice versa and so will need something that can be small and keep you warm.
2. the hood is great for covering your face when you fly and are trying to sleep or using it as a pillow. Also why I pack an eye mask.
3. It is great to have an extra layer for the plane in case you get cold.
I also carry my Longchamp handbag as I like to put my passport wallet and drink bottle and anything extra I might buy in it so I can have easy access to it. At the other end it is easily folded up and stowed until I need it again.
