On a good day, you’ll get to the airport, breeze through security, get on your plane, and take off and land on time. Most of us know how often that actually happens, however, and have come to expect delays of some kind. While you can’t make the trip go any faster, you can put together a kit so you don’t get bored, hungry, or too uncomfortable when your plane gets grounded.
Let’s be honest: this is a first-world “emergency” kit. Most of us can imagine far worse scenarios than getting stuck on an airplane for an extra few hours. That said, discomfort is not required just because it’s the default option. With the right considerations and a small amount of preparation, you can make sure you’re good to go on most flights—both good and bad. Let’s take a look at each problem you can encounter and how a small change in what you pack can solve the issue.
