Headache? It lays the ears?


If you often headache on the plane, more serious measures are needed. Contact your flight attendant to bring a “Cheburashka” (most of them will understand what is being said). You will be brought two cups with hot towels, which will need to be tightly pressed to the ears (hence the name). This method helps a lot.
