How to sleep easily on a plane? People who can easily fall asleep on a plane are among the lucky few because most of us aren’t able to doze off in a cramped space, sitting in such an uncomfortable position and surrounded by total strangers.
What if we told you there are some simple tricks that can help you catch some Z’s on board? Who knew that flying on a Tuesday or keeping your seat belt fastened could actually make a difference?

TIMESTAMPS
Night is the best time for a flight 0:34
The best days to fly are Tuesdays and Wednesdays 1:27
The perfect seat is by the window 2:16
Tilt your seat back to the max 3:17
Clothes should be warm and comfortable 3:58
Fasten your seat belt over your clothes 4:43
Get yourself some sleeping accessories 5:25
Control the scents around you 6:05
Put your gadgets away 6:59
Food and drinks 7:34

SUMMARY
– It’s great if you can pick a flight for the time you usually sleep at. Wake up 2-3 hours earlier on the day of your flight to help you fall asleep faster on board later on.
– If you want fewer passengers and more space, pick the most unpopular days for booking flights: Tuesdays and Wednesdays, as a rule. You might even get up to 3 seats to yourself!
– Always try to pick a window seat to rest your head on the wall and not be bothered by your neighbor wanting to get up to go to the bathroom. If you normally sleep on your left side, aim for seat A. If your right side is your preferred sleeping position, pick the window seat on the opposite side of the plane.
– If you want good quality sleep in the cabin, adjust your seat as far back as it’ll go. Just make sure the person behind you doesn’t mind.
– To have a sound nap onboard, you should wear loose clothes made of natural materials that don’t constrict your movements. If your airline doesn’t provide blankets, take a jacket and warm socks too.
– A seat belt fastened over your clothes or blanket won’t make your sleep more comfortable, but it will prevent flight attendants from waking you up if the plane experiences turbulence.
– Light and noise are the main culprits that keep you from getting needed shuteye. So this answer might be obvious: use a sleeping mask and earplugs!
– You can control the scents in your immediate surrounding. Just sprinkle the head rest or your travel pillow with some lavender oil or any other essential oil you like.
– Don’t watch movies on your phone, tablet, or laptop because the blue light of the screen wakes your brain up. Most sleep experts say you should put away all your electronics at least half an hour, or, better yet, an hour before you plan on dozing off.
– If you want to be fast asleep, don’t overeat onboard. The food should be light and healthy, while the best drink option is tea (the herbal variety is perfect) or just plain water.

    Tilting your seat back to the Max is just annoying & uncomfortable for the person behind you, who will feel squished🤔plus please no perfume/aftershave/b.o. All 3 are terrible smells in close confinement 🤗🌷

    From personal experience, I tend to get an incredibly dry throat and mouth during long flights that is a constant source of discomfort during the flight and after landing.
    And it always wakes me up 🙁
    Recently, I’ve gotten into the habit of wearing a surgical mask when I’m not feeling well, something I started doing as an exchange student in Japan. I’d recommend a surgical mask as well as some gum to ward off the stale breath after any food. It might seem uncomfortable but if you can get used to it you can say bye bye to airplane dryness :)))))

    Most airlines have a no-scent policy. I get a horrible reaction from scents, so please do not spray anything on yourself or a pillow as suggested in the video.

    I have a tip listen to the same song/white noise on repeat from your phone as you sleep for the 2 weeks before your flight and when ever you try to sleep on a plane or any awkward place you should be falling a sleep faster because your brain is used to the sounds.

    What ever you do, don’t spray fragranced oils, deodorant etc, because you never know if anyone’s has allergies or asthma and it might affect people sitting near you

    This is impossible on the new planes with smaller seats, less leg room unless you, the people around you and the person behind you is less than 5'7" and weight less than 125 lbs.

    #1 for me is taking LIQUID (NOT pills) VALERIAN ROOT!! Knocks me right out usually.  You'll have to test your body but I suggest starting off with an eye dropper full & if it doesn't knock you out – try more.

    Plus a sleeping mask (I just use a thick headband & earplugs. 

    I also prefer Red Eyes as I'm not going to get any/much sleep the night before a flight so I pull an all-nighter.

    I also wear a mask on flights (#1 – to help me NOT get sick from all the people around you) & then I put a little Lavender Essential Oil inside it. Being inside the mask means I'm not intruding on other people's space & offending them – & I get the relaxing sleep!

    Peeps – PLEASE NO NO NO scent what-so-ever!!! Just because you don't feel comfortable in your own skin/with your own scent doesn't mean you have to subject others to scents – essential oils or perfume!! Quit being SOOOO self absorbed. This is not just an in an airplane hint – this is a LIFE hint!! The scent you choose could make others sick on numerous levels

    Don't drink tea aboard an airplane; the water tanks are never cleaned and contain algae, and the water boils at 90C instead of 100C (lower pressure up there) so the bacteria are never 100% killed.

    They actually have plenty, and the cabin can't finish all the trays.

    My checklist for international long flights
    1. Pick a good airline. Cheapest is not always best. Paying 50-100 more for better airline is worth it.
    2. Pick a good transit airport. Airports like Changi, Incheon have real good options for transit passengers including free city tours.
    3. Carry essentials you will need at destination with you in carry on. Luggage not arriving is common and some things like electronics are not covered by the money airlines pay on lost luggage.
    4. Pre-select seats. If your travel site doesnt show an option. Check with airline website with confirm number.
    5. Order speciality meal , you get served earlier than others. Plus you know what meal they will serve you.
