Surviving Long-Haul Flights in Economy

Every sugar relationship is truly unique. Although flying on a first-class ticket should be on every Sugar Baby’s bucket list, not all Sugar Daddies have the means to constantly splurge for your many travel adventures. While my Sugar Daddy is very well-off, most of my flights are booked with points. This is an excellent way for Daddy to add even more generosity to your arrangement without any extra monetary cost to him. He needs to use those points for something! After thousands of kilometers of flying experience, I have learned five essentials that will help you master long-haul flights in economy. Follow these simple strategies and relax high above the clouds!


This is KEY. As soon as my flight is booked, I immediately upgrade to a preferred seat. These are not expensive and are well-worth your Sugar Daddy’s hard-earned cash! These seats are in the first row behind the premium economy section and in the exit rows. The benefit of these seats is the generous amount of extra leg room. No one will have to get out of their seat every time you need to go to the washroom, so you can get up and down freely. Yes, there is that much room! Book a window seat and you will be treated to some breathtaking views. I always take a large, structured handbag with me to use as an optional footrest when it’s time to sleep. This is much better than trying to sleep sitting up with your legs folded underneath you. Keep in mind there is no under-the-seat storage in front of you, so your handbag will need to be stowed in the overhead bin during take-off and landing. Remember to pull out any items you may want during these times (cell phone, earbuds, book, etc.). There are a few exit rows of preferred seats throughout the plane, but sitting as close as possible to the front allows for a faster exit upon arrival.


Even if you don’t have any dietary concerns, I highly recommend pre-ordering your meal. Not only are the special meal options generally healthier than the limited options they serve, but you will get your meal before everyone else! This goes for the snacks that are served as well. If you want to indulge in that extra glass of red wine or would like another club soda or orange juice, remember these items are unlimited and free of charge on international flights. They aren’t constantly offered to you like they are in first class, so you need to ask for them. Push the “Call Attendant” button at any time during your flight and they will be happy to assist you.


Cabin air can be very drying, and nothing feels worse than disembarking with dehydrated skin. Lip balm, facial moisturizer, eye drops, nasal spray and hand cream should be kept at the top of your toiletry case. Get up regularly to go to the washroom to freshen up. I always walk to the washroom that is furthest away from my seat so I can stretch my legs. Although they are basic at best, a pillow and blanket are provided on international flights, but not an amenity kit. Pack your own sleep mask, earplugs, socks, and most importantly, toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss. If you wear contact lenses, consider taking them out when you go to sleep so your eyes don’t feel dry and scratchy when you wake up.


When I first started sugaring, I was completely clueless about the types of aircraft. I was just so excited to board the plane and start the luxurious vacation that I didn’t give any thought or attention to the physical makeup or layout. I came to realize this is actually an important aspect of flying and is something Sugar Daddies are acutely aware of. Take the time to do some research on the fleet of your Sugar Daddy’s preferred airline. There is one aircraft that is above the rest and is hands-down the best for long-haul flights – Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner. The primary benefit of these aircraft is that they pressurize at approximately 6,000 feet – 2,000 feet lower than what is standard for flights. This results in less-dry eyes, no more headaches and far less fatigue upon arrival. Boeing calls this “The Dreamliner Effect”, which I thought was bogus until I flew on one. Over 70 airlines have now incorporated this aircraft into their fleet, including Air Canada, American Airlines, and British Airways.


If possible, try and pick a flight time that corresponds with the time zones you’ll be flying across. For example, if you have a nine-hour flight from Vancouver to London, departing Vancouver at 5:50 pm will get you into London at 11:05 am the next day without a lot of change from your regular sleep schedule. Since you’ll be able to stretch out in your preferred seat, and you will have eaten your meal before everyone else has even been served, you can clock in a good night’s sleep on an overnight flight and arrive at your destination refreshed and ready for an amazing time with Daddy!

Bon, voyage!
