Here's a few things I try on long trips:

1. Arrive real early and request an exit seat, either the main exit doors or Emergency exit doors for the extra leg room.

2. If that doesn't work, what I would do on those long flights from Hawaii to the mainland would be to get out of my seat and hang out by the aft lavatories until the FA's give you dirty looks.

3. Sleep if you can.

1) Drink a few Hi- Balls before in the airport lounge
2) Bring along 5-6 Maxim magazines
3) Bring a mp3 player or discman
4) Pig out on food before you board the aircraft
5) Drink as much as you can so u can go to the washroom and kill more time off the flight
6) Flirt with some of the good lookin female flight attendents
7) pass out in your seat and wait for the F/A's to carry you off the plane...lol..

Give the cabin a thorough once over just before the doors are closed.
If you spot a suspected al-Qaida or Taliban member, use your cell phone to call the airport police and inform them that you overheard this individual on your flight saying that; "He had a bomb."
This works every time.

I make at least 2 flts to Hong Kong a year and I have made a couple of long a$$ runs to India, and the best way to get through that I have found is to take a 750mg Alprazolam and wash it down with a little of this.....101 proof none of that weak a$$ 80 sh*t!!

That's enough Alprazolam to put down an entire armored cavalry regiment, man.

My best tip to survive the longer flights: fly business class!

I usually get a pretty good poker game going with the flight attendants at the aft galley. Strip poker if it is a Virgin Atlantic flight.

You can also spend hours looking at every item in the duty free cart, or my favorite is racking up some more mile high club points!
