Oh, we all know the pain for long air flights, don’t we? They can be boring. They can also be very pressing on our general health and well-being. One of the common problems that most of us face during long air flights is frozen feet. One thing that causes a lot of problems is the cold temperature in the air flight; it can make anyone’s bones shiver, quite literally! Also, the cramped leg space, narrow seats, and lack of mobility – can further cause issues. But lucky for you, LatinOFare has some travel tips for frozen feet during long flights.

 Ask the airline for a blanket

If you feel the temperatures of the air flight are going lower than bearable, you should be proactive to ask the flight attendants for a blanket to help you stay warm. Wearing a blanket before you start feeling cold is the best to avoid getting those frozen feet. Some airlines do provide free blankets, while others may require you to pay a little extra. In the case of the latter, you should also call and inform the airline, at the time of booking the flight tickets. 

Bring flip mittens along

When traveling, do not depend on the blanket solely to provide you warmth. It is best to wear warm socks and also bring along flip mittens to stay comfortably warm during the air flight. Long air flights can turn the feet extremely cold and it is best to avoid it before you face the condition. Flip mittens are very handy to wear on the air flight and also are great for people who tend to have colder feet and hands than the rest of the body.

Take slip on socks

It might happen that during the initial few hours, you fairly survive the temperatures and feel normal. But that can change in no time, so it is best to keep a pair of slip-on socks handy to ensure you can wear them instantly when temperatures begin to drop too low for you. Woolen socks tend to be the best escape from cold feet.

Keep your feet elevated

Well, another trick that will work for you is – keeping the feet elevated a little. This will encourage good blood flow in the feet, which will keep you warmer. More so, try to flex your ankles frequently to keep the blood flowing smoothly.

Take a walk in the aisle

During long air flights, it is best to take a short walk in the aisle in every two-hour interval. This will keep your feet in motion and promote healthy blood and heat circulation, preventing them from turning too cold. But remember to not cause any disturbance to fellow passengers. Hence, ask for permission and take turns to visit the restroom.

Trust these useful tips and you can easily say goodbye to frozen feet during long flights. Also, to ensure you are protected always, take LatinOFare’s travel protection program, which will cover trip cancellation, trip delays, trip interruption, baggage delays, emergency medical expenses, etc. Moreover, you should consider travel assistance services from LatinOFare; this will provide you a host of post-ticketing benefits.
