To take the pressure of the straps off your ears grab a packet of flexible ear savers. They work quite good, but haven't tried them on a long haul flight yet.

As someone who regularly spends 10 hour shifts in an N95 mask the disposable blue surgical ones feel like slippers by comparison 😂
These are the ones I wear on flights, no issues whatsoever.
I’ll be reserving my 3M Aura ones for upcoming trips on the Tube in rush hour.

Indeed. DIL as GP has now reverted to the N95 masks at work. Still off to UK for Christmas? DIL is getting very stressed by it all.

Did mask the whole way on the flight to Singapore from Melbourne. Wasn't an issue for me even though after long hours and glasses they are extremely uncomfortable. Didn't bother taking it off while sleeping, I figured if the couple in front of me could wear a full hazmat suit/mask/face shield get up I would be ok with just the mask ha ha ha.
