These rules are referring to round the world trips and long term travel from the folks at Airtreks, which is where I purchased my RTW ticket.
What caught my eye was the study that showed that not eating before a flight may lessen the effects of jet lag. Now going without food for 16 hours to lessen the effects of jet lag may not be an option for you. I know it would NOT be an option for me.

Sunrise is revered all around the world and to see it in different locations on the planet would be an exhilarating experience. You’ve got to do it at least once, even if you’re at home in your robe and slippers.
Getting around the checked luggage and carry-on rules by checking at the gate before you board, not at the curb or check-in.
I know that I like to be at the head of the line at the boarding gate just to make sure I can get my carry-on in the overhead bin above or near my seat. You hate to be the person who has to put your stuff all the way back in Row 24 when you’re in Row 9. You’ve got to wait until everyone gets off the plane or worse risk your stuff being stolen.
I recently ordered the Berlitz Earworms Japanese Volume 1. These language lessons are set to music which is suppose to aid the retention of the words.

Speaking of passports, many countries do not allow entry if your passport will expire within 6 months of your visit. I’ve got to get mine renewed. Hard to believe 10 years have passed since I first got it.
In some fun for ‘Lost’ fans, Kayak was selling flights on the ill-fated Oceanic Flight 815.
Go to Kayak and search for a one-way flight from Sydney, Australia to LAX for September 22, 2010.
