I know a lot of people that just manage to sleep all the way through long haul flights. Sadly, I'm not one of those lucky people! I can occasionally get a couple of hours sleep, but I just don't have the ability to sleep sitting up most of the time! I try and get a magazine or two at the airport, and I'll usually bring my kindle too with a few books loaded on to it. I used to bring paper books, but realistically these days it's too heavy lugging them around! That's why e-books are a travellers dream! I even sometimes bring things like crossword puzzle books or Sudoku to occupy some time. Also, music/movies loaded onto an electronic device are also good - or the in flight entertainment. A couple of movies are fun to relax with and kill a decent chunk of time! What about you?
