Flying around the world has blessed me with a strong sense of what to pack for a flight and especially a long haul flight. If it’s just an hour, your bag isn’t that different than a daily commute, but when it comes to long-haul flights, your bag makes or breaks your flight comforts (let’s assume you’re not flying business or first class). So here’s my long-haul flight pack list, I’ll regularly update this list, did I miss anything? Let me know!
Long-haul pack checklist
Magazines + book
Fuji Instax + films
Moleskine notebook + Stabilo pens
(Empty) Water Bottle
Glasses / travel kit contact lenses
Passport + passport wallet
Travel tooth brush (kit)
My Maybelline lipstick (or make-up bag)
Backpack… as I’m often lazy and just want everything fit in a bag, I just bring a hiking backpack with me. Of course, on a city trip I’d pack a feminine handbag, but for long haul I like a backpack.
