It's a couple of years since I've flown Qantas international economy - do they still supply ear plugs and eye masks to help with our sleepy-byes?

The family and I will be travelling MEL-LAX and I want the kiddies to sleep their heads off. Every little bit helps...

(I note from another thread that J class get PJ's and possibly lullabies on some flights!! I suspect that doesn't extend down the back...)

This link isnt incredibly useful (the pack looks very small) But the Flash version say you get eyeshades but no ear plugs.

Nah, you can generally buy them from Chemists before you go. Prices vary; but should cost no more than $1-$2 per pair.

Otherwise you can try the work clothes/safety shops, they generally sell earplugs in pairs, plus they tend to have a larger range of styles than the chemist

Just get a set of Shure or Etymotic in-ear earphones. Then you have both sound isolation (ear plug function) and quality audio concurrently.

On the other hand, I might do my usual thing and drift off to sleep listening to a heavy metal CD on my walkman - that will kill without mercy any other sounds!!
