Not to scare you, but bedbug infestations on an airplane are super real. However, there are ways to protect yourself. See Ways to avoid bedbugs on planes:
1. Educate yourself: How can you avoid bedbugs if you don’t know what they look like? The truth is that they are wingless, light brown and are small in size.
2. Try a seat cover: Even bedbugs can live on dresses, they also bite through most fabrics, so a disposable seat might be needed.
3. Choose the right airline: Planes with vinyl seats will help you avoid bedbugs.
4. Be careful off the plane too: Sadly, it is not only planes you need to be worried about, cabs, subways, buses, can accommodate bedbugs too.
