yes if you have a long flight make sure to get up and walk around/stretch. I flew cross country and stood in the back by bathrooms and did stretches and walked up and down the aisles. I always make sure to get an aisle seat too so i don't have to squeeze by anyone and can get up for potty breaks ect. as i please
