Many posters seem unable to sleep on flights, presumably anything above Economy is a different story, but that has never stopped me getting 40+ winks. I can sleep without fail on both long & short haul. Just a coat over my head and within 10 minutes Im asleep! My partner is like sleeping beauty. I used to accompany her on short haul from Leeds (Manx, as were) & Mter (Flybe) to the IOM and she could be asleep whilst we were still taxiing. Even turbulence fails to wake her. These days I sometimes take my noise cancelling headphones and an eye mask and can sleep from AMS to the west coast of CA, asking cabin crew to wake me up for the main meal. On the eastbound leg I skip food and sleep for a solid 8 hours, even without alcohol.
Is it just me?
