Duty-Free Shopping Must-Haves: In-Flight Comforts

September 17, 2012 at 1:42 PM | by | ()

If you're anything like us, you probably think that the in-flight duty-free shopping catalog can eat up a good chunk of time on long-haul international flights and provide a few giggles or unique gift ideas. This week, we'll dive into the pages of some favorite airline shopping magazines and highlight our picks for the just-can't-live-without items.

Today we bring you items that can be purchased on board to use while in-flight. Whether you're using them to make the travel experience a whole lot more comfy or to burn up a few hours before the initial decent into your destination, this is our short list of stuff to keep an eye out while thumbing the pages on your next flight:

· KLM eases nervous flyers nerves with a book devoted to those with a fear of flying. For just about 7 euros, the jittery flyers can get self-help book delivered to their seat. This might make air travel a whole lot more pleasurable for all on-board — remember Bridesmaids?

· Eva Air has your wellness in mind, and not just for DVT. For those that are worried about being in a confined space with viruses, airline crew will send you a box of vitamin C candies to boost immunity to the nasty germs that stowed away before departure.

· American Airlines and Delta want you feeling your best when walking through passport control. They both sell liquid oxygen drops to relieve jetlag, boost immunity, brighten skin and ease the pain of too many in-flight wines. While we aren't too sure of the accuracy of the claims, but it probably won't hurt to try it out for $23.

· Lufthansa has the solution for crazy after sleeping upright for 8 hours with a satin hair brush from Braun, a German company natürlich. For 39 euros, you can get static free hair so you can step off the plane looking like you flew first class.

· United Airlines relieves the puffy eyes of travel with Clinique's All About Eyes Serum. Loaded with a little caffeine, the depuffing eye roller eliminates the look of crossing multiple timezones. Hands down, it may have been the best $25 we've spent on a plane since it actually works!

These products are just the tip of the iceberg to the little gems you can find. Now you know that you shouldn't pass over the duty-free shopping mag in your seat back pocket since there are plenty of great finds. If you look forward to getting on a plane for a certain product, let us know what it is in the comments below; we'd love to hear about it.
