Im a fan of the single sleeping pill routine! Usually one after dinner on LAX-LHR and no alcohol and i keep my litre water bottle filled and keep drinking whenever im awake. Helps too if you do a little "bedtime routine"- pad down to the bathroom, brush teeth, etc. Also, I actually used the eye shades and ear plugs for the first time on my last long night flight and hot damn if that didnt work! At least it tunes out most things, and puts you in your own little world. Also, dont sit too close to the aisle if you can help it, because of people brushing past. Or near a lav or a galley- ESPECIALLY a galley- the light from there will keep you up all night long.
