When placing your order for airplane tickets, consider requesting aisle seats. That way you can easily stand up and stretch your legs every now and then so you won't get stiff.
Make reservations early so you can request seats that are more comfortable to you. I suggest you request a seat on the exit row or just behind the bulkhead. These seats allow you more room to stretch.
If your arthritis is very bad, you might want to call the airport ahead of time and request that they have a wheelchair or motorized cart waiting for you when you get there. This will help you not have to walk a lot, since we all know how big airports are.
If you have trouble carrying your heavy luggage, ask a skycap to carry it for you, because that's what they are there for. They are there to help and serve you when needed.
Try to not book an airplane trip where you have to return in the same day. Allow an extra day in between to help you recover from jet lag and where you can get enough rest.
If at all possible try to book a non-stop flight, that way you don't have to worry about changing planes.
When going on an airplane it would be a safe idea to make sure you have all your medications in your carry on bag. This way you will have it in case you get delayed or if the rest of your luggage gets lost.
