|Subject: Re: Sleeping on Overnight Flights|
I am also one of the fortunate few who can sleep anytime and
anyplace. What I find most irritating is not being able to
raise my legs in the limited space available on airplanes,
so I stash a small bag under the seat in front of me and put
my feet on it for a bit of elevation. After the meal (with a
glass of wine), blow up the portable neck pillow, use the
airline pillow and blanket for more comfort, dial into the
classical music channel on the flight audio and it's "Good
night Irene" for me.
Of course those sleepers in Business Class are really the way to go and my experience of these has been great, except when the hostess insists on waking you up for more food. I'd rather skip the food for the sleep.
On a flight from Vancouver to Hong Kong, I missed my sleep because the movies were so good (!) and the scenery over the Russian peninsula so spectacular. Felt really awful the first day in HK, so I wouldn't do that again.
