2017 VAST Catalog - 8

How Can I Make My
Air Travel More Enjoyable?
Virtuoso travel advisors offer tips for making
your next flight fly by.

TRAVEL ADVISOR

Abby Lagman, Las Vegas
"Bose QuietComfort noise-canceling headphones are a must.
I like the QC25 model
- great sound and
super-comfortable
ear cups. It uses a
AAA battery, so pack
some extras." $300, bose.com.
"I also love the Bluesmart One
smart suitcase. It connects
to your smartphone through
an app and lets you do some
cool things such as track your
luggage, check its weight, and
even charge your devices."
$449, bluesmart.com.

Delta's premium economy
cabin. Clockwise from top: The
Bluesmart One, Smith's Rosebud
Salve, and a Global Entry kiosk.

Limor Decter, New York City
"I've had the same list of flight
essentials for years: my travel
pillow, a thick pashmina scarf that doubles
as a blanket, an
eye mask, earplugs,
antibacterial wipes (for
the tray table and armrests),
and protein-rich snacks. I also
try to walk around and stretch
to avoid deep vein thrombosis.
And I won't fly without Smith's
Rosebud Salve, which combats
the effects of dry, recycled
cabin air." $6,
anthropologie.com.

TRAVEL ADVISOR

Tom Jackson, Santa Ana,
California
"I can't say enough about the
convenience of Global Entry,
which speeds admission into the U.S.
after international
flights and includes
TSA PreCheck for
domestic flights." Five-year
memberships, $100; apply
online at cbp.gov/travel.

TRAVEL ADVISOR

Michael Holtz, New York City
"All business-class seats are
not created equal! A connected travel advisor can
find that truly flat
seat. In economy,
Delta is launching a
dedicated premium
economy cabin on certain longhaul routes in 2017; American
Airlines did so recently. Those
seats are far better than ones in
standard economy."

TRAVEL ADVISOR

Janet Lavern, Ottawa, Canada
"Many airports now offer
private lounges, and you don't
need a first-class
air ticket to access
them. They provide
comfortable chairs
for naps, light meals
and snacks, luggage storage,
and free Wi-Fi. Perks may also
include showers, spa services,
and skipping to the front of
security and immigration lines
- all a godsend after a long
flight. Ask your travel advisor to
prebook a lounge for you - it's
well worth the average $30 to
$50 charge."
