I always take extra socks because I hate cold feet.  And I also usually pack extra plastic baggies if I’m going on a plane or trash bags (for dirty/wet clothes) if I’ll be  gone longer than a week.

bring your own pillow and maybe a small blanket. I used to fly alot to see family, and reading would really bore me sometime you may want to take something to do with your hands? word puzzles, a notebook, even a camera. a music player helps too!

I hate freezing my butt off on planes too!!  So annoying.

In addition to your list: iPod, glasses, extra contact lenses, contact case and solution.  I lost a contact lens at camp one summer and had no extras and no glasses with me.  Spending two days with one contact lens will teach you to ALWAYS carry glasses and spare contacts 🙂

Dramamine – I sometimes get motion sickness since I moved to the city and stopped riding in cars.

I-Pod – I get bored easily, and it shuts out screaming babies and annoying people around you.  Also, you can use the headphones for inflight entertainment since they charge you for them now.

Pashmina – a little more versatile than a sweatshirt and keeps me warm on the plane

Snacks – I’m lactose intolerant and lots of the junk they give you on the plane has cheese or milk in it.

I was going to say what everyone else has, but I wanted to add in eye spray, my eyes get really dry with the aircon on a plane, I find it really refreshes them.

Oh and some sweeties!!! 😉

My Kindle, hand gel, lotion, socks, and a great throw.  Snacks and a big bottle of water are a must too.

Ooh, forgot to mention we bought anti-bac wipes on the last trip and wiped down the arm rests and fold down table.  It looked a little anal but I felt 1000x better about sitting there for 10 hrs.

I have a small fleece blanket I got at Target for $10 that I always bring and my plane neck pillow. Always have a sweater, ear plugs and medicine in case. I get headaches sometimes. Definately sanitizer and eye drops (the air drafts make my contacts dry).

Those are my essentials. And if it’s a longer flight………snacks.
