How To Avoid The Flu While Flying

Pick a Window Seat. A window seat reduces the amount of people you’re exposed to on the plane, which can be a decent line of defense against getting sick.

Wait To Board. Large, tightly packed together groups of people are not your friend right now.

Stay Hydrated. Your best line of defense against airborne diseases is the mucus membranes in your nose and mouth.

Turn On Your Overhead Vent. The idea being that the air vent improves air circulation and can move germs that come into your vicinity away from you.

Wipe Everything Down. The person who sat in your seat on the last flight could have used it to place everything from their child’s dirty diapers to their own snotty tissues and now you’re going to use it for peanuts.
