    Look around the cabin and the first person to meet eyes with me gets challenged to a staring contest. I will not look away for hours, even if they do.

    I take a 10mg Valium and sleep on the fold down tray

      I read books. I prefer real volumes made out of paper, but I also have a lot of literature on my phone I can read in a pinch. Might watch a film depending on what’s available. Might or might not try to sleep, depending on route and time of day. I theoretically believe in the “don’t sleep en route unless it’s a time of day when it would be normal to sleep at your destination” principle, which demonstrably reduces any jet lag symptoms, but it’s not always realistic if it’s an overnight flight or something.

      I don’t drink alcohol or take sedatives anymore, but I have done in the past—washing down some diphenhydramine with a few glasses of wine used to be pretty much guaranteed to make me pass out for a small amount of very-low quality sleep, from which I would wake up poorly rested with a hangover worse than its terrestrial analogue would have been. And I used Valium on overnight bus rides a number of times, optionally potentiated with a beer (although alcohol and benzos can be legitimately dangerous in combination). I have learned with age and drying out that these are worse than going without, but I understand why people do it and can’t pretend I didn’t enjoy it.

      Wise words. I get a docs prescription for 1mg Xanax and I pass out for the entire flight. I always wake up with a stiff neck though.

    Since I never pay for the wifi I spend that time on my text editor thinking of thread topics and replies for the boards I browse on SighSee. I'll usually develop at least 10 to 20 threads and a few replies for each just for maximum (you)s.

    I usually sit and space out. I day dream. Sleep. Stay with myself. Usually not even on the phone. It’s detox.

      WHAT A LIFE

    I routinely fly between the U.S. and India. I normally stay awake for the first hour of the flight, until meal service. Once the flight attendants start serving food, I'll take a combination of melatonin and diphenhydramine. This normally knocks me out for at lest 7-8 hours. If I wake up more than 2-3 hours before landing, I'll watch a movie or two, sleep, and repeat.

    Sometimes I'll also catch up on work or read a book. Long flights are never very fun--unless you're in business and can lay down to catch some proper sleep--which is why I always try to sleep through them as much as possible.

    Recently flew from Delhi to Chicago, which is a 15.5-hour flight. I was living in India until earlier this year, and the pharmacy beneath my apartment gave me some Xanax. I don't mess around with that shit--had a few bad experiences after using it as a regular sleep aide for about 1.5 months--but I took some for the flight along with melatonin, and I may as well have fricking teleported from India to America.

    In business class I enjoy the food and beverages and sleep. In coach I drink as much as I can so I perhaps could get an one hour nap and wake up feeling like I was beaten. Such is life.

    I always turn-off the screen, which gets me a few looks from morons. I hate having a screen so close to my eyes (i close my eyes 90% of the flight but don't sleep).
    AIso, i skip the lunch as i hate plane food.

    Then i listen to my own music or audiobooks with my noise-cancelling headphones.
