A flight attendant has revealed what she needs for every flight – and it only costs £1.50.
The Virgin Atlantic cabin crew veteran will never board a plane without a little Vaseline.
Vicky Lewis, from Sonning in Berkshire, has worked for Richard Branson’s airline for 28 years and said: “Vaseline is a must to keep my lips from drying out. And I’ll even put it under my eyes on super long flights.
“Keeping liquids to a minimum requires ruthlessness, so a small can of petroleum jelly will cover a lot of bases. I also love all of the CeraVe products, including their moisturizers and cleansers.”
Speaking to Sun Travel aboard Virgin Atlantic’s newest route to Tampa, Fla., she confessed there are a few other key things the crew love to do to make life on board just that little bit easier.
She added: “Another thing I like to have is a hot water bottle if we’re lucky enough to have the crew rest in those secret bunk beds!
“My other must haves are a Tangle Teezer hairbrush to keep me looking groomed and I’ve found that a Heathrow Rewards card is a must as I go there so often and anything I buy at the airport means more points and instant rewards.”
Vicky, 47, welcomed passengers aboard Virgin’s maiden flight to Tampa – and was one of the first to crew her brand new Airbus A330neo plane.
The airline said it ordered 16 planes in 2019 and the first are now joining Virgin’s fleet – flying to Boston and Tampa.
The planes are among the most environmentally friendly in the sky, using 11 percent less fuel and causing fewer CO2 emissions.
And travelers can look forward to many upscale details. Economy class has the airline’s largest seatback screen at 13.3 inches – an intuitive touchscreen with Bluetooth so you can plug in your own headphones and use your phone as a controller.
Economy passengers also get AC or USB ports to power devices, as well as 31- to 34-inch seat pitch and a 17.9-inch wide seat.
In Premium Economy there is wireless charging in the seat, calf supports and more storage space.
And in Upper Class, high rollers can kick back on a 6ft 4in bed in their own suite with a privacy door.
There’s even a special retreat suite at the front of the plane – Virgin’s largest to date – featuring two exclusive suites with 6ft 7″ flat beds and 27″ touchscreen monitors.
Here’s another travel item that flight attendants swear by.
And another flight attendant revealed the two unusual things she always packs — and you can get them at hardware stores.
