Many travelers complain about long flights but for me it is part of the experience. The link below reviews several travel accessories to make the long flight more enjoyable or bearable. My best advice is being mentally prepared for the long flight and again make it part of the travel experience. When I go to China on the 12 hour flight there is no way around it, I am on a 12 hour flight so now I am much more patience and enjoy the experience. For me, one of the most enjoyable phases of my trip is getting my seat on the airplane with my carry-on space in the overhead bins and clicking the seat belt on. The reason is that I enjoy the planning part of the trip so when I am in my seat then I know my work is done for 12 hours. I travel in economy class and 6ft 2in body frame and I make the most of it. The only travel accessory I purchase is the neck pillow for the long flights and drink lots of water and water.
Travel smart and safe.
