What are Red-Eye Flights?

Red eye flights, also referred to as overnight flights, are commercial flights that take off very late at night and land early in the morning of the next day. The 'red eye' term comes from when passengers get red eyes after feeling exhausted from travelling late at night or early in the morning. Red eye flights are frequently used by business travellers who don't want to miss a day of work or holiday-goers who wish to make the most of their trip and avoid doing any travelling during the day.

Red-Eye Flights Tips

No one wants to feel exhausted or restless after flying on a red eye flight. Here at Alternative Airlines, we've got a few tips and trips for you to follow so you can arrive at your destination feeling energetic and well-rested, ready to tackle the day!

Comfortable Clothing

If you're thinking about wearing your suit on your red eye flight, think again! Although you'll want to look smart for your business trip, it's best to keep the smart wear in the suitcase and instead wearing loose, comfortable clothing. This can include a t-shirt, hoodie, sweatpants, shorts and soft socks - you'll be asleep in no time!


To get to sleep even faster, we recommend bringing a few helpful accessories on board such as a sleep mask, travel pillow and a warm blanket. The cabin in the plane can sometimes get chilly so having a warm blanket should help you keep warm while you sleep. If the airline you're flying with doesn't provide in-flight entertainment, it's a good idea to have some of your favourite TV shows or movies with you on your mobile phone or tablet - this will help you get comfortable and relax easily.


No one likes having interrupted sleep! This is why it's crucial to book a window seat on your red eye flight instead of a middle or aisle seat. You'll reduce the chances of being woken up by other passengers in the same row as you if they need to get up and use the flight facilities. With a window seat, you'll even have control over the window shutters so you can stop the bright light from the sunrise from waking you up.

Eat Light

Having a light meal before your red eye flights means you won't be hungry before falling asleep - avoid eating a large meal or a meal that is fatty/oily as this will make it more difficult for your stomach to settle before you sleep. If the airline you're flying with doesn't offer a meal before the lights go out, you'll want to eat beforehand at the airport.


Finally, going for a walk around the cabin and stretching your legs will improve your blood circulation in your body - this will make going to sleep a lot easier!
