How To Sleep On A Plane

How To Sleep On A Plane

Preparation for the flight

Window seats next to the emergency exit is one of the best if you're in economy. You will rarely be disturbed, unless of course in the case of an emergency! You have the benefits of a window to lean on, a little leg room and an armrest. The worst situation to be in is the seat next to the bathrooms or the flight attendant station as this is a constantly busy spot.

Whatever you do, don’t forget the seat position rules of etiquette: the window seat has the window and some of the centre arm rest, aisle seat has an armrest and a little extra leg room, middle seat has two arm rests.

Time To Sleep

When on a long flight, dress appropriately. The comfier the clothes, the better.


Be armed with a pair of noise cancelling headphones, a great playlist, a face mask and a neck pillow. These cleverly shaped pillows allow you to rest you head back or to the side and drift off to sleep.

Avoid caffeine beforehand and hydrate your body with water, don't overdo it.

Buckle goes over your blanket to prevent it from slipping off. Keep a couple of snacks and water near you.
