On the 14hr or so nite flt from LAX to SYD after the 5 and a half hour JFK-LAX sector, the last thing I'm going to be paying attention to during the course of the flight is the service. All I want to do is put my head down and try and sleep away those long hours...

I'm not sure what you mean. Service isn't important to you because you're so tired? I agree that sleep is more important of the two, though good service often leads me to sleep longer :D .

Therein lies my problem with "cradle" seats. If I sleep on my back, I snore - and believe me, you don't want to be in the same cabin as me if that is the case...

Have you seen those "anti snoring" rings advertised in various inflight magazines. Haven't tried them, but they are like a little wedding ring you put on your pinky or something. The advertising blurb says the contours in the ring places pressure on whatever point to stop you snoring :eek: .

Let's put it this way, at the time of nite the flight gets away from LAX, the last thing I want to be worrying about is the brand of champagne or red wine being served, whether there's one or 50 inflight movies being shown or even if the female flight attendants were working topless..I just want a glass of iced water, tell the FA to not disturb me and then put my head down and go off to sleep.

Mind you, I think if you are travelling during the daytime on a long-haul flight, you tend to be more aware (and critical) of the inflight service that is going on around you. Anyway, that's my personal take...of course everyone is different and is entitled to their own opinion of what their expectations are. As they say, "you can't please everyone all the time".

At home I have an anti-snoring device. Its is Mrs NM's elbow. The moment I start, her elbow reacts - and I am sure it is not a conscious action and happens in her deepest sleep. After I receive the jab I roll onto my side, snoring stops immediately and we both sleep well.

But even without the snoring, I still can't sleep on my back. Always on my side. So I don't sleep at all in economy and sleep very little in business without a flat seat/bed. I can dose, but not sleep.

Hubby has snoring problems as well. Sometimes I think lucky that the plane engine is loud that no one hears him!

I have tried wearing noise cancelling headphones, but Mrs NM says she can still hear me snoring. They just don't seem to stop me snoring :roll: .
