Ear Blockage and PainEar pain is one of the most common problems people face while traveling in a plane. About one-third of people complain of ear blockage after a flight which occurs due to change in pressure during landing and take off. Traveling when you have cold could cause some serious damage to your ears. Therefore, you should avoid flights when you can't clear your ears.
In order to save your ears from the torture, you can try chewing gum or cover your ears with ear plugs. Swallowing to open the Eustachian tube that has been blocked or yawning also helps.
