My butt hurts bad during long overseas flights

Other than that closed in feeling of being in a cattle car, the thing that bothers me the most during a long flight is how much my butt hurts. Those economy class seats are so hard and uncomfortable and I am really hurting after a few hours. I wonder if there is anything I can do.

What do you do to protect your rear end from being so sore on those long international flights?

Grab a few extra blankets and pillows as you board, pad your seat.
How do you track your miles and trips? Here is a collection of FlyerTalker spreadsheets you can use.

In all seriousness to the subject the OP has raised, I too find that on long haul flight a begin to slouch or slide in my seat and but more pressure on my tail bone than I normally would, resulting in a sore backside.

As this topic was pretty much covered in this thread I am going to close this one.
