The Way to Wing It
It is possible to get off a plane looking cool, calm and in control.

Hilary Alexander has a flight plan

Travelling may be stressful, tiring and time-consuming, but there is no need for it to turn into a fashion disaster, too. Although comfort should be the main priority, sometimes - if you are flying on business, for example - what you look like when you get off the plane is equally important.
So, understanding what works when flying and what does not can help to make the journey not only comfortable but stylish.

Do Not Disturb
Cabin crew on a Delta flight from Houston to Salt Lake City last week have admitted that they failed to notice a passenger had died en route.

“As long as the seat is upright and the tray table folded away for landing, we let people rest,” they explained. “We don’t like to disturb passengers.”

As the corpse was removed from the aircraft, a fellow passenger suggested that the policy had failed: “I’m pretty damned disturbed.”

Is it ok to fly?
We’re still flying even though we know it’s bad. Leo Hickman on whether we should be cutting back

Air traffic control
Perhaps the most immediate opportunity for saving fuel – and therefore cutting emissions – is by changing the way planes are flown and directed once airborne. Air traffic controllers in Europe believe that up to 12% of the global fleet’s current fuel burn could be saved simply by making planes fly more direct routes. For example, London-Bangkok routes fly around the Himalayas as well as make other diversions to avoid costly overflight charges that some countries demand. More “point-to-point” flights (A-B flights) and less “hub-and-spoke” routes (A-B, but via C) could minimise fuel wastage, too.

Effect of Hypobaric Hypoxia, Simulating Conditions During Long-Haul Air Travel,
Toff et al

Venous thromboembolism after long-haul air travel was first reported more than 50 years ago. Subsequent case reports and epidemiological studies have provided further evidence of an association but it remains unclear whether this is due to the effects of prolonged sitting, as in other modes of travel, or whether there is a causal relationship to some other specific factor in the airplane environment.
