If you really want to sleep, then take a window seat. In an aisle seat, you may be disturbed by people passing in the aisle brushing against you, and by people in your row rousing you to allow them access the aisle. If you have the misfortune to be in a row with someone with a weak bladder, they can be up and down like a jack-in-the-box all through the flight.

It goes without saying that you should bring earplugs and eyemask (I always have a pair of each in my carryon). Sleep when your body tells you to.

On arrival in GLA, expose yourself to the daylight as much as possible, try not to go for a nap in the afternoon, but allow yourself an earlier night than you would normally take.
