In terms of clothing and footwear, she recommended wearing loose, breathable clothes but also a few layers as it gets cold on the plane.
“My pilot uniform is made out of natural breathable fabric, it is loose so that I can perform my job in comfort and stay focused without any unnecessary clothing-related distractions,” she said.
Christine added: “I also wear flat, supportive shoes for safety purposes. I suggest that passengers wear comfortable shoes and clothes on the plane, they should avoid wearing high heels and wear layers as the air conditioning (which is permanently on) means that it can get cold in the cabin.”
Many passengers experience travel sickness on the plane but according to the commercial pilot, this can be avoided if travellers “don’t overeat before a flight and remember to take motion sickness tablets”.
