Sleeping on an airplane is difficult. If you are in the aisle seat, you have to worry about getting hit with the drink cart. If you're in the window seat, you can lean against the window, but you'll always get that kink in your neck. Just forget about getting comfortable in the middle seat, it is pretty much impossible.
