For some people, falling asleep during a plane journey might seem an impossible task. We understand that perfectly: there is constant rattling coming from the airplane, the flight can be extremely bumpy due to turbulence and adverse atmospheric conditions, and the seats are not the most comfortable thing to sleep on (you can’t even stretch your legs or get proper support to rest your head).

Staying awake during an entire long-haul flight can be exasperating. Between one or two small walks along the narrow corridor to restore circulation, a trip to the bathroom, and playing a few Candy Crush levels before you run out of lives, you might find yourself with nothing to do for hours.

However, when you have to travel by plane dozens of times a year, you might realize that there are a few things you can do to comfortably sleep on a plane – even if it is only during a small part of the trip. We have gathered7tips for sleeping on a plane from frequent flyers that will surely help you the next time you catch a flight.
