travel necessities for a ten hour flight...

... my iPod, this book and one dozen 3 ounce travel size plastic shampoo bottles to fill with liquor.

earplugs (even if you don't end up needing them, they don't take up much room, and if you end up sitting next to a snorer or a screaming kid, you'll be glad you have them,) thick comfy socks, and a rosary in case you have engine trouble!

Oh, and do the pre-check in 24 hours before your flight!! You can choose your seat then and not wait in the excruciatingly long line at the airport.

I despise air travel. It's often unavoidable. But if I had any choice in the matter I'd rather take the extra couple of days and go by boat at least one way.

You know, you could always just try the duty free shop after you get through the security check point. You're going to look awfully funny sucking down bottles of shampoo.

Breviary. Rosary.

Fluffy socks and earplugs will almost certainly be provided on a long-haul flight.

Check with the airline, but (a) you probably won't be allowed to take the liquor on with you, and (b) they probably provide it on a long-haul anyway. You're not usually allowed to open Duty Free stuff in flight, though.

John (AO);
quite so; but I imagine that Kat doesn't want to spend her entire vacation period on a boat - unless Mgr Georg is vacationing on it, of course !
