Sleeping on airplanes (in cattle class)

Jump to last reply

I have a difficult time with jet lag, and continue to experiment with schedules, food/no food, light/no light, homeopathic remedies, etc. etc. to find what works best for me.

Meanwhile, I'm also trying to learn how to sleep on airplanes. This is especially relevant because I'm taking a red-eye from the midwest to central Europe in a couple of months. My biggest problem seems to be that I just can't sleep unless I'm almost horizontal. (The only time I've been able to sleep, even on an overnight flight, was when the back of the plane had an empty row and I could lie across 3 seats.)

I've tried Ambien and the like, but reacted badly. If anyone has any tips, tricks, or suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
