For all the times I’ve sworn “I’m never taking a red-eye again!” while leaving the airport bleary-eyed and exhausted after a trip, I still find myself taking a few every year. Hey, those prices just can’t be beat, and sometimes, they’re the only flights available for your destination.
It’s a little silly to complain about the legit miracle of human flight, but we all know sleeping on a plane isn’t great. Luckily, there are several products out there that can make catching an hour or two of sleep on your red-eye actually possible. Even if you don’t actually fall asleep, at least you’ll be as comfortable as possible while you watch the sky map on your in-flight entertainment screen, feeling every second of your journey as it passes by!
It may seem like a long list, but between your carry-on and personal item, you can easily carry these small items. How do I know? Because I own some version of every item on this list and bring them on all my red-eye flights. Get ready to be the most moisturized, snuggled up, sound-proofed passenger on your next airplane ride!
