In brief: Talk to your doctor
Like many other conditions, long qt (lqt) has many forms of expressing itself.
Your doctor knows you best and can make specific recommendations. Keep in mind stress can aggrivate fainting with lqt, and travel in general can be stressful. Most airplanes only have oxygen on board in case of an emergency. Additionally, be sure to review your medications with your doctor as many affect lqt.
