I had a two hour layover in MN twice this past week and after two and a half hours of flight time, twice in a day, I needed the lay over!
The airline seats have gotten so stinking small and uncomfortable, by the time I stood up my legs and hips were cramping big time
I spent my entire two hour layover walking and it felt great. I even bypassed the movable walkway (my name for it, I am not sure what it is really called).
I figured if I kept moving then my second flight would not feel so horrible and crampy. It did help a bit but still got a bit crampy.
The worse part is that the plane was small as it only had two seats on either side of the isle and the guy next to me was a very nice guy, but rather large, and took up about a fourth of my seat. I had to sit with my outside armrest upright and my knees facing on an angle into the walk way. I tried real hard not to act annoyed but I was a bit. There were literally NO other seat available. This made me even more glad that I walked off some calories and burned some energy!
Every little bit helps and walking for two hours will definitely help combat the five hours of flying time!
Have a great day!
