Travel Tip No. 21: "Noise is more tiring than inactivity. Icarry my own [Bose] noise reduction headphones for flights twohours and longer."
Seating tips: "A row of coach seats is more comfortable forsleeping than a two-class, first class seat. In first class,although I prefer the port-bulkhead window, the best domestic seatsto sleep and have privacy are 6F in the 757, 2A in the A300, 7F inthe 737, and 4J in the 767. For international, the farther to theback, the better."
Mother Nature: "When traveling to and from South America,make sure to sit on the starboard side once in a while. You get tosee the sunset and sunrise."
