I’m a pretty decent flyer. I am not particularly scared out of my mind about traveling thousands of miles above the ground in a metal tube piloted and built and maintained by fallible human beings at hundreds of miles per hour. Turbulence always makes me a bit nervous, of course, but I try to sleep through most flights.
Here are the five things I absolutely must have any time I find myself in an airplane:
- denim jeans
- backup USB battery pack
- a detective novel
