Long Haul Flight Carry-on Checklist

When travelling on a long-haul flight (over 5 hours), it’s important to be comfortable and make sure you have enough entertainment with you. This is the checklist I use when I fly between NY and London. A long haul flight carry-in checklist will help ensure you remember everything you need! I just carry one bag…or put my purse/handbag in my carry-on. Travelling is stressful as it is – make your life easier and travel with only one thing having off your body! Preferably one that you pull on wheels or is a backpack.
