If you’re getting ready for a long-haul flight, you might not be looking forward to spending hours and hours in the same location, excusing the occasional loo break. To prevent cramps and numbness in your legs, you should consider stretching them periodically.
Stretch your feet several times on a long-haul journey
Aim to stretch your feet once an hour, if possible. Clench and widen your toes, lift your heels and move your ankles in a circular position a few times for each foot stretch. These exercises can still be performed with limited legroom, although it will certainly be easier to stretch your legs in first class accommodation.
Have you experienced a non-fault injury in the last three years?
If you’ve suffered slip or fall that was not your fault, you could be eligible to get compensation, just as victims making a car crash claim can seek car crash compensation. For example, some passengers can experience slips, falls or trips at an airport or on a flight, which could lead to injuries like fractures or bruises.
If you were not warned of turbulence on a flight, or experienced a slip or trip on a slippery surface without warning, you could also claim compensation. Other non-fault accidents could include spilt drinks on aisles, injury due to an obstruction, or being scalded after a member of staff has spilled a hot drink on you.
