I usually wear ctoton velour pants on an over night trip since they are so comfy, and flats are a must with any cover up for warmth for sleeping. Theblankets are too large, if they are still given to passengers. I also check all luggage except for a hand bag I can use as a pillow along with the one given. That way I can exit without the struggle to retrieve over head luggage. Yes, I keep a clock on the time of where I’m going and the previous night go to bed by that time, wake, eat and am ready for the air port terminal and the lengthy wait before boarding. All hints are appreciated.
