I always get changed into a tracksuit for the flight and then my clothes are fresh when I land

I fly long haul a lot, and wear a jersey tunic dress (although merino is nice too if you aren't going somewhere hot) and leggings. Comfy, practical, and non revealing as you twist about in your seat

Instead of spending 35 quid on cashmere slippers, I take a pair of comfy socks to wear on the plane.

To feel fresh at your destination, wear a panty liner, then you can pop into the loos when you land, use a facial wipe to clean your face and fanjo, ditch panty liner, then put on some face cream, brush hair and teeth, a spritz of perfume, and you'll feel great

OMG never jeans. You can feel really bloated on a long haul flight -- something about the air pressure, so an adjustable waistband is a must. Consider leg blood clot prevention also when choosing legwear; maybe leggings would do the trick here. Cozy socks that don't have a tight band at the top keep your feet comfy. A scarf is a lovely item to bring -- something light and cottony to keep your neck and shoulders from getting chilled by the draughty overhead air things and to roll up a little and give yourself a pillow cover for the inflatable pillow thing you'll be bringing. Plus you might consider a face mask for germs. I find that wearing sunglasses for long flights discourages annoying passengers who want to gab on and on and on about their whatever -- eye contact is all these bores need to get them going, so cover the eyes; they also keep the glare of early dawn, other passengers' overhead lights, etc. from waking you. Choose knockers that are not too tight around the legs -- a loose boyleg style won't cut off your circulation, but these are not the best for pantiliner use..

Yes I meant knickers... come to think of it, your knockers should never be too tight around the legs either.
