Hello there, travelers. I'm Marko. I'm Alex.
And we are the Vagabrothers.
And in this video we are going to share some tips
on how to survive a long flight.
These days there are direct flights half way around the world,
which is great, but it means flights are longer than ever.
So we're going to share with you guys 10 tips on how
to survive a flight, and maybe even enjoy it.
Number 1: Rest before you go.
One of the simplest ways to improve your travel
experience is to make sure you're well rested before you
take off. Even better, the night before you fly
adjust your watch to local time at your destination
to help your body get adjusted.
Number 2: Upgrade your seat.
Now most of us can't afford business class,
but a lot of airlines offer premium economy, which
you can upgrade to using cash or frequent flyer miles.
But it never hurts to go to the gate agent with a smile
and ask if there are any extra seats in the emergency row.
Thank you. Enjoy your flight. Bye.
Number 3: Once you're on board, get comfortable.
Take anything out of your back pack that you might
need, like headphones, water bottle, or a book,
and then store your bag in the overhead compartment,
not down below. Trust me, you'd want the extra leg room.
To get extra comfy, take your shoes off
because cabin pressure affects your circulation.
Number 4: Dress right.
Airplanes get really cold, and a lot of them don't
even give you a blanket.
They left me with no blanket!
So you need to dress warm and wear layers.
Jacket, scarves and wool socks are a great call,
but leave your skinny jeans at home unless you want a
ten hour wedgie. Ten hour wedgie?
No, thank you!
Number 5: Pack good gear.
Little things can make a big difference.
If you plan to sleep, eye shades, neck pillow and ear
plugs are crucial and easy to pack.
Noise cancelling headphones are great, as are Kindles
and tablets. Just make sure you charge everything and
download any videos, podcasts, or ebooks you want
before you fly.
Number 6: Pass the time.
Nowadays, most airlines offer free entertainment,
be it movies, music, or TV.
But sometimes you've got to pay.
Now on a long flight that might be worth it,
but you can always use the time for some
distraction-free reading.
Maybe get a little bit of work done?
Or you could always read that weird little magazine
they put in the seat back pocket.
Number 7: Eat and drink right.
Long flights usually have food included.
So choose carb-rich foods if possible. They're high
in insulin and will help you adjust to jet lag.
Stay hydrated by bringing your own water bottle.
You can get the flight attendants to fill this up
in the galley. Avoid caffeine and alcohol, if possible,
but if you do imbibe, you can use these kits
to turn a well drink into a craft cocktail.
Number 8: Befriend the flight crew.
Flight attendants have a tough job dealing with hundreds
of people, and they usually just get bitched at.
So a little bit of kindness can go a long way.
You can chat them up when you're waiting for the
bathroom and remember to always say please and
thank you because chances are they may have a spare
meal or a glass of wine that they'll give you
if you are nice. And if all else fails, you can always
bribe them with chocolate.
Number 9: Move around.
Flying is not natural. It impedes your circulation,
which can lead to deep vein thrombosis.
It doesn't sound fun.
Avoid this by taking a lap around the airplane
or doing some simple exercises.
Number 10: Arrive fresh.
Wash your face, brush your teeth, maybe even change
your shirt. Little things can go long way to helping you
hit the ground running.
Well those are our tips. What are yours?

1take off0:31
飛行機の「離陸」と「着陸」はどのように英語で言うか知っていますか?絶対にflyfall なんて言わないで下さいね…正しい言い方は take offland ですよ!フライトで知っておかなければならない単語ですよね。ということでこの動画の中での take off は「飛行機の離陸」という意味になります。面白いのはこの動画では、「ようこそ」や「任務完了」という意味にもなることです。覚えておきましょう♪ また、land は後ろに前置詞のat をおいて、都市や空港の名前を言います。つまり、 land at N. で到着する場所を表します。
The plane is about to take off, so you'd better fasten your seatbelt.

The boss decided to give her a bonus for her project really took off.

この単語のもともとの意味は「区間」です。基本的には空間的な意味が含まれ、 freezer compartment(冷蔵庫の空間)というように用いられます。 overhead compartment
I suggest you put that backpack in the overhead compartment, or else it's going to be very uncomfortable for the next few hours.

3jet lag2:28
jet この単語の意味は「ジェット機」もしくは「噴射」という意味があり、 lag は「のろのろと」や「送れる」という意味になります。しかしここでは「飛行機の遅延」という意味ではなく「時差」「時差ぼけ」という意味になります。
Due to jet lag, I have been waking up at 5 o'clock in the morning for the whole week.

他にも、飛行機に乗ると気分が悪くなるような症状がでたりもしますよね。例えば airsickness は「飛行機酔い」という意味ですね。同じように carsickness は「車酔い」となります。こういった交通手段の乗り物が速い速度で移動したり、上下に揺れたりする故に起こる「乗り物酔い」はまとめてmotion sickness といいます。 motion にはもともと「移動」という意味が含まれています。
Oh my gosh, I can't bear carsickness. I think I'm going to throw up.

bribe この単語は動詞にも名詞にもなります。動詞では「わいろを贈る」や「わいろを買収する」などの意味になります。名詞では take a bribe というフレーズをよく使います「わいろを受け取る」という意味ですね。もうひとつ関連する名詞で有名なのは: bribery です。こちらも「わいろ」という意味です。この動画では bribe them with chocolate ,というセリフがありますね「チョコレートを用いて彼らを買収する」(チョコレートの賄賂を渡そう)という意味になります。そうです、 bribe A with B で「AをBで買収する」の意味になります。
In order to persuade Tom to support my plan, I bribed him with a meal.
Tom の私の企画への支持を獲得するために彼をごちそうして支持を買収した。

これ以外にも、bribe はよく目にする「わいろ」の別の言い方です。また corruption は「汚職」「腐敗」「贈賄」といった意味で似た表現ですね。でも、corruption のほうが意味の範囲が広く, bribecorruption の一部分と考えれば分かりやすいです。
The news exposed the corruption of the mayor, which was a great shock for all the citizens.

5take a lap3:11
みなさん take a nap は「うたた寝をする」という意味だということは知っていると思いますが、ではtake a lap はどういった意味でしょうか? lap には「包む」「取り囲む」といった意味があり、この動画では「一周」「一往復」といった意味で使われます。
A: I think Michelle has a crush on me. Do you think she would invite me to her party?
B: Oh come on, go take a lap.
A: 僕が思うにミシェルは私に片思いをしているよ、僕は彼女のパーティーに呼ばれると思うかい?
B: まったくだ,目を覚まして!(一周してこい)

この動画を見終わった後、なんだかたくさん有益な情報が得られた気がするのは私だけでしょうか?!今度飛行機に乗る際は余った emergency row seat (一列目の座席)はあるかどうか聞いてみるとよいかもしれません。みなさんが快適な空の旅を送れるよう願っています。
