Place all of your bags overhead
In case you’re destined to spend your flight in the not-so-pleasant middle seat, you should be aware of the fact that you’ll inevitably feel somehow cramped no matter what. Therefore, you need to free up as much space as you can at the level of your feet. It is highly recommended to put all the items you’ll be using on the flight (such as headphones) in a small tote bag so you can enjoy the most space.
Pack the right equipment
Sleeping is probably the most enjoyable way to survive the middle seat during a flight. So make sure to pack all the essentials (the right travel pillow, comfortable outfit, headphones, earplugs, and a soft eye mask) that will help you sleep in the most comfortable way possible. You’d want to choose the neck pillow carefully since it’s a key element in avoiding the awful stiff neck and other body aches.
