On almost all my longhaul fligts , where Ihave been able to catch somekind of sleep, my eyes have always been dry and somethimes red when I wake up. You also feel kindof dry alover when you wake up. I know this is due to dry air, and since you are exposed fro this air much more on longhaul, I was wondring what the crew dues to avoid what i will call "dryness" Is it something that I as a normal pax can do?
And are the air in the cockpit different from the one in the maincabin?
Is the solution to fly the 717, which i have haerd has very nice and "fresh" air
