BEAUTY TRAVEL MUST HAVES
Packing is difficult enough without having to worry about which beauty products you might need when you are away. The secret is to travel light and pack multi-tasking products which will save precious space in your suitcase. I asked some of the most experienced globe trotters in the beauty business, who know exactly how to avoid excess baggage, for their top travel must-haves.

Passengers record drama at 29,000ft as hole is blown in Qantas 747 fuselage
After the belly of their jumbo jet was ripped off in mid-air, passengers could do little except strap on their oxygen masks and record their 20,000ft (6,000m) plunge. Footage from mobile phones showed the Qantas flight from London to Melbourne experiencing an “explosive decompression” when a 10ft hole appeared in its fuselage.

Tight solutions for jet-lag
Long-haul air travellers are waking up to the fact they can tackle jet lag - by wearing hi-tech tights.
Because there is up to 25% less oxygen in aircraft cabins than our bodies are used to, oxygen starvation is a key factor in jet lag - together with the impact of long-haul on our internal "clock".
Now the Aviation Health Institute - the world\'s first independent non-profit body dealing with aviation health issues - has recommended travellers wear the tights to combat jet lag as the tights increase the flow of oxygenated blood back to the heart by up to 30% by putting pressure on specific muscles.

By Jaya Narain
Last updated at 11:34 PM on 27th July 2008Two women could face a year in jail and a £20,000 bill after a drunken rampage aboard a plane in which one of them tried to open the cabin door at 30,000ft.
The pilot was forced to make an emergency landing in Germany after the pair, aged 26 and 27, lashed out at stewards who refused to serve them more alcohol.
Terrified passengers watched as the women, who had been drinking heavily and smoking in the cabin toilet, shouted abuse at cabin crew.

AIRLINES could install spy in the cabin systems on their aircraft in a £29m prog
By Nicola Smith and Richard Woods

The EU is keen to pursue a project for in-flight monitoring of passengers with tiny cameras and microphones in aircraft cabins. Computers would constantly analyse facial expressions and conversations for suspicious behaviour, triggering alarms if certain traits were identified.

Travellers tummy may be cured by E. Coli patch
By Jeremy Laurance

For sufferers of holiday tummy, relief may be at hand. Scientists have developed a vaccine patch that can cut the incidence of traveller\'s diarrhoea by 75 per cent.

Traveller\'s diarrhoea lasts on average between four and five days, involves 18 trips to the loo and leaves sufferers hydrated and debilitated.

The patch, worn on the upper arm, delivers a tiny dose of toxin produced by E.Coli bacteria, the most common cause of diarrhoea, which stimulates the body\'s immune response. It is applied for a six-hour period three weeks before travel. A "booster" dose is delivered through a second patch applied one week before travel.

A trial using 170 volunteers in America found it significantly reduced the incidence and severity of diarrhoea. Researchers from the IOMAI Corporation in Gaithersburg, Maryland, found 21 per cent of those given a place-bo had a moderate to severe attack of diarrhoea, compared with 5 per cent of those who received the vaccine. The results are published in the journal, The Lancet.
