    While we'd all like to jet about in business class, many companies insist that business travellers fly in economy -- even on international flights from, say, Australia to Asia or the US.
    With a flying time of 8-12 hours on each leg -- and more if you've got a connecting flight -- it pays to try to get extra legroom, along with taking a few steps to survive a red-eye night flight.
    But there's one extra measure you can take when planning your schedule to make that flight more bearable (other than whipping out the credit card and upgrading yourself). The secret? Pick a plane that's 'economy-friendly'.

    That's a great explanation for newbies! And it's probably a good reference for anyone who is overwhelmed with comparing the different airlines to/from Australia.
