If you’re snatching some last-minute summer in September, or if you fly frequently for work, then one of your concerns may well be how to get from one end of the flight to another without catching a cold. Airborne germs on aeroplanes tend to circulate around the cabin and the problem is even graver if it’s a long haul flight. It’s tiring enough just enduring the flight, but when there’s one of those human mucus machines sitting near you, someone who coughs up a lung-full of germs every fifteen seconds, sniffling, sneezing and snorting as if no one but them mattered, then your spirits really start to sink because you know there’s a bigger chance than usual that you could catch whatever revolting lurgy they’ve got. How different it all seemed, days before your holiday, when you were enjoying gay massage, relaxing and savouring the heady anticipation of a wonderful trip.

Studies on who is going to get sick and who is not!

There’s no getting round it. When you’re in close proximity to scores of people for hours at a time, you get exposed to a far greater number of germs than would normally be the case. Studies show that those sitting in the rows directly in front of or behind the sick passenger are the ones most likely to catch the bug. Then there’s the fact that an aeroplane’s environment exacerbates the problem. Cabins have an arid atmosphere which quickly dries out people’s nasal and throat passages, diminishing the body’s natural defences, such as the mucus which helps inhibit germs. The very last thing you want is to arrive for a holiday and have to take to your bed instead of having fun. If you’re travelling for business, then similarly, you want to be bright, sharp and clear-headed, not sluggish, temperature-ridden and weary. Male massage London can certainly get you into as good and relaxed a state as possible prior to your flight, but the good news is there are additional steps you can take to protect yourself.

How to keep yourself well

1.Hand sanitiser. Keep it close and use it before and after everything – before and after you touch that paper cup, before and after you have lunch, before and after you touch any surface. Be thorough, including the backs of the hands and under the fingernails. If you’ve got disinfectant wipes, then give the folding tray table that comes down from the back of the seat in front of you a good clean because those surfaces are often the worst offenders when it comes to the harbouring of germs, and quite often they are not cleaned in between flights.

2.Be rested. Getting a proper night’s sleep before your flight means your body will fight invading illnesses more powerfully. If you get on to a flight in a state of run-down exhaustion, you’re much more vulnerable to all the nasties being coughed up by other passengers.

3.Cancel. If you’re the one who’s sick, whether with cold or flu, then don’t fly. That’s the advice from many organisations involved in disease control. Not only can flying make your illness worse, you’re causing harm to other people by having such a cavalier attitude to their wellbeing.
