How to avoid getting sick on a flight:
1. Air vents are your friends!
2. Wear layers.
3. Water water everywhere…
4. Take antibacterial wipes and gel.
5. Get outta there!
We’re not suggesting anything to do with parachutes, before you jump to conclusions.
Seriously though, if you think that someone who you are sat next to (or near to) is sick, you can ask to move seats! You might feel a bit awkward about it, but you are within your rights to remove yourself from the germ firing line! 2 seats distance in any direction should be sufficient, and the airplane staff should try to accommodate your request.
