Nothing dampens your holiday spirit more than the dreaded airplane cold. You’ll wonder if it’s the food, water, or perhaps a consequence of the numerous cocktails you sunk by the pool. In fact, airplanes are industrious carriers of the common cold.
It’s hardly surprising when we consider the levels of intimacy afflicted upon us by modern airlines, with cramped seating arrangements and narrow thoroughfares a popular bugbear. And while we can’t do much about the lack of breathing space in most airplanes, we can prepare our immune systems for any cross country journeys we take before we even board.
