Woman Dies of 'Economy Class Syndrome'?
Who doesn't move at least 3-4 minutes in an hour on any kind of a flight?? But then, I grew up travelling long distances on planes and cars and buses, so I'm used to it, I guess. This sounds a bit freak-accident-ish..
"A spokeswoman for Qantas was quoted as saying: "The safety of our
passengers is always of paramount importance and we refer to the possible
effects of flying in our in-flight magazine." It advises passengers to move their legs and feet for three or four minutes per hour to improve circulation."
When you're sitting down, the idea is to pump your feet up and down. Heel to toe and back again. If you have a small pillow, you can put it under there. Or a tip I got, cause I carry a little blow up neck pillow, is to put that under my feet while not using it, and pump and push against that. It's a minimal movement. I think this woman must have not moved at all.
