? When booking your ticket, ask for a seat that is over the wing. The seats over the wing normally offer the most stable ride and will help you protect against the motion that causes air sickness
? Get adequate sleep the previous night
? Never travel with an empty stomach or full stomach. Eat light and healthy
? Avoid eating oily and greasy food as it normally aggravates the motion
? Wear comfortable clothes when traveling as the clothes that are tight around your waist can worsen the feeling of nausea
? Avoid alcohol and cigarettes, as they help aggravate motion sickness
? Do not read when you are on the aircraft
? Have some cold drinks, preferable which has citric or tea with lemon/ginger flavored.
? Make sure that when you are seated, the air blows directly on your face
? Relax and look at distant objects but avoid excess concentration
? You can recline your seats and close your eyes. Or a better option would be to sleep till you reach your destination.
