Sleeping on airplanes sucks. You’re surrounded by noisy strangers, in a seat that won’t recline far enough, trying to position your head so that you’re not blinded by the guy in front of you watching The Croods on his little back-of-seat screen. It’s no surprise, then, that so many of us stumble off of an overnight flight jet-lagged and bleary-eyed, with only the briefest of in-flight naps under our belts.
Comedian Demetri Martin, posting on Tastefully Offensive, has some suggestions for airplane sleep positions that might help you eke out a little more airborne shuteye. The pictures, drawn in the same minimalist illustration style you might remember from Martin’s stand-up or his Comedy Central series Important Things, offer a variety of position options, catering to people with various needs for personal space, spinal flexibility, and desire to not die in a plane crash.
