I still suggest getting 2-4 hours of sleep a night for two or three months before the flight. That should do it. Plus, think of all the stuff you'll get done!

Yes, this sounds like a great idea... Going around sleep-deprived for several months just so I can sleep for one night on an airplane for a few hours? Thanks! (Besides, I'm already a chronic insomniac and it has never affected my ability to sleep on an airplane!)

I can only manage short naps when I am on airplane but never a real good deep sleep.

I am one of the lucky few that gets a good deep sleep on a plane. As soon as I sit down I start feeking tired right away and just zonk out.

I manage to sleep (I'm talking red eyes long haul flights in cattle class here), but the quality of my light slumber is abysmal , crooked with my 6ft 2 in in seats made for lilliputians with a miserable pitch. So there is no way for me not to feel exhausted with muscles aching after a 8 or 10 hour flight.

Today as nearly every flight, I missed take-off, snacks, and just woke up when landing...

Rip Van Winkle on the 12 - 18 hr legs to Asia monthly.

I NEVER could sleep at night or on a plane... Then one day (~age 22); SNAP I was gone.
I had a major life event and had become a caregiver at age 18 for a disabled parent. By age 22 I was TOTALLY exhausted (& for next 32 yrs). Now I have a theory about worry and about sleep... An airplane ride is such a perfect time to sleep !

My spouse has to use 'sea bands' but can still sleep when tired enough. I usually work through the night before a flight anyway, so its good to get a time to rest.


When you arrive at destination. IMMEDIATELY get into the local time zone schedule
