Red Eye Flight
Getting to sleep on a plane can sometimes be difficult. Here are some tips and items that you can bring on a red eye flight that will keep you well-rested upon arrival.
Leave the suit wear in your case. Feeling restricted in your clothes can really reduce your chances of getting off to sleep while flying. We suggest wearing loose clothing — a t-shirt or hoodie with sweatpants, jeans or even shorts. The key is to dress in whatever you most feel comfortable.
Invest in some in-flight accessories
Whether it's a sleep mask, earplugs, a warm blanket or a travel pillow, having the appropriate in-flight accessories can make all the difference in helping you rest on your red eye flight.
Pre-book your seat
Pre-booking your seat will give you the opportunity to choose a window seat and eliminate the risk of other passengers waking you up if they need to get past you. Window seats also give you control over the window-shutters, so you can make sure that you're not woken up by light coming into the plane upon sunrise. Additionally, some airlines offer seats with extra leg-room available to pre-book for an extra fee.
Top tip: Choose to sit near the emergency doors. These seats have more space than other seats on the aircraft and usually cost the same price!
