    Get really drunk?

    Personally I can almost never sleep on planes and I've done two 12 hour flights before. Sleeping in a sitting position doesn't seem possible for me. The noise isn't so much of a problem because the engines are a regular droning noise so it's fairly soothing provided you're not right behind them.

    Adjust your headrest thing so it's at the same height as your head, that way it's not pushing your head forward. If there are spare seats in the plane, move to a row that has more empty seats if possible.

    Bringing your own eye mask and earplugs would be helpful on short haul flights. It's difficult to sleep, I know. The 4-7-8 technique or 487, can't remember, may also be worth looking into.

    Hi I travel frequently and unfortunately in economy so often have to deal with sleeping in an uncomfortable chair. My top tips would be to bring an extra small pillow it can make all the difference if you either use it for back support or to actually sleep on instead of the sometimes itchy airline pillows. Another tip would be choosing your seat if you have the chance to - if you are quite tall or have lomger legs definitely go for an aisle seat as when they turn down the lights feel free to stretch your legs out into the aisle, of course not all the way but they are unlikely to use trollies at this time so you can put your foot out slightly. However, if your more interested in heap support go for a window seat. Also try to avoid sitting in the front row where you may be seated next to a baby who may unfortuantely cry. Another tip is to take a very small dose of a natural sleeping pill or dream water which will help you sleep on longer flights but may cause you to feel drowsy when you wake up.
    Sorry for the long reply but hope this helps!
