  • Don’t let her sleep before the flight and home she will then sleep for most of it. Be prepared for lots of ‘looks’ from people when she plays up. People on planes seems to have low tolerance for kids

  • Take as many hand held games as possible. Books, colouring in books with pencils and textas. Sometimes the stewardess’ are nice and will take the kids off your hands for a little while, maybe to visit the pilot in the cockpit.

  • Lots of snacks, lots of games, movies, cartoons, favourite toy/blanket.
