Years ago someone taught us to always pack a cashmere (or pseudo-cashmere) wrap in our carry-on bag. It's one of our favorite tips -- we've used it as a blanket, a pillow (who needs Jet Blue's
, anyway?) and even to protect our laptop. We always take a couple of other things along, too...
A good paperback book. A pen and notepad. A protein bar. And warm socks. (We were also advised years ago to always carry a flashlight, which we did when we were flying every other week, but we actually forgot about it until now.)
