Getting a Good Night's Sleep While Flying Is Finally Possible for Everyone

If you are planning the trip of a lifetime which includes a long trip by plane, you are probably trying to figure out how you can manage the long flight and still land feeling awake, refreshed and ready for your new adventures. However, as we all know, taking long flights is draining and exhausting as we rarely are able to get a good night's sleep while sitting virtually completely upright, crammed between two other people and being jostled awake by people coughing, babies crying and people brushing past you in the aisles. It is a wonder we can don't just pass-out for a day as soon as we get to our hotel rooms.

But did you know that now we have a very good alternative with airlines that are offering completely horizontal beds that let you sleep soundly while laying fully flat? Now when I say fully flat and horizontal, I am not talking about a steep recline combined with a footrest, what I am talking about is a bed that is as flat as your bed with a nice comfy pillow and blanket. Put on your face mask and put in your earplugs and you will be having sweet dreams while flying through the clouds and wake refreshed and ready to go as soon as you hit the ground. Getting good and quality sleep on your flight can make your trip be even that much more productive and fun which will make it well worth the extra effort.

Yet I know you must be wondering about how expensive these options are and are they only available for those able to afford First Class. Unfortunately, the majority of them are only available in First Class, however, that does not mean you cannot afford it. One thought may be that it could be worth stretching your budget to include the sleeper seats to help make sure you get the most of your trip by being energized by a sound sleep. But, another option is to use those points you have been saving up on your preferred airline or credit card. For First Class sleeper options, there are more and more airlines offering fully horizontal beds such as Delta, American and Korean Air, and they all range in price and availability.

However, for those of us who do not have the budget or the points to make First Class an option, there is finally a new great solution. Finally, flat beds are available in the economy section through an innovative design by Air New Zeland and hopefully others airlines will follow their lead. Called the "Skycouch," Air New Zeland has a row of three seats that have been specially designed to create a fully flat space all the way to the seat-back in front. This provides a place for kids to play or a flat surface for adults to relax and sleep.

So how much does the "Skycouch" option cost? For two adults traveling, the Skycouch cost will be based on buying two seats at standard prices with the third seat at approximately half price. The service will be launched on Air New Zealand's services between Aukland and Los Angeles, and will be available on the carrier's Los Angeles-London services from April 2011. So while you might have thought that traveling in a sleeper bed was an option if you wanted economy travel, as you can see, now it finally could be.

I have had had the amazing opportunity of being raised with my father being in the airline industry. As a result, I have traveled to over 21 countries and done every kind of vacation from the 5-star luxury immersion to the rough and tough backpacking through the jungles. It wasn't always easy and it wasn't always fun as sometimes I got pick-pocketed, no running or hot water and lots and lots of bugs, but through it all, I have learned through trials and tribulations how to get the most out of any kind of vacation.

With travel as a passion, I have created two great resources to help you get the most from your trip. The first is a resource to find economy travel tips and resources at Economy Travel Guide. Secondly, I created a vacation forum for travelers to share their experiences at DreamVacation123 allowing you to give and get the most up-to-date advice and recommendations helping future vacationers benefit from their experiences.
