1.      According to one estimate, you can lose about two cups of water from your body for every hour you spend flying. While estimates of water loss during flight vary, it’s well-known that flying causes dehydration in passengers, which can lead to deep-vein thrombosis on long-haul flights. Drink water before, during, and after a long flight.
2.      A man once wore 70 items of clothing in a Chinese airport to avoid the baggage charge.
3.      Air travel is the second safest form or transportation. Only the elevator/escalator is safer, although it would take quite some time to travel 1,000 miles on an escalator.

5.      70% of aircraft in service today are over 70% more fuel-efficient per seat kilometre, than the first jets in the 1960s. Take that eco-warriors.
6.      The Wing-span of the A380 is longer than the aircraft itself. Wingspan: 80m, Length: 72.7m.
7.      Even though airlines carry medical kits and can quickly be in radio contact with doctors on the ground, about 100 people a year die while flying. So believe it or not, that’s one of the main reasons your wonderful cabin crew are onboard as we are all first aid trained and complete yearly exams to stay in check.
8.      The specific rules regarding flight attendants vary among airlines and between countries. But in the UK and US there must be at least one FA per 50 passengers.
9.      In 1940, it would cost one years wages to fly from London to New York. By todays average, it costs only Mondays and Tuesdays working wage.
