    So, an upcoming flight to Germany has me thinking about this question: What are the items in your travel bag/carry-on that are staples of said bag and help you bide the time on long flights. I know, personally for me, I've always got a book and a couple of magazines, some nuts (cashews, almonds, soy nuts, etc.) to snack on and my iPod.

    For my flights to China, I like to bring 3-4 novels, a laptop, a few boxes of ramen noodles in case the food is unusually sub par (I one found what resembled hay in my fish in my United business class), a Nintendo DS, and my iPod Touch.

    I should get one of those things I see in Skymall, the charger adapters that plug into the headphone slot, but I honestly think power sockets in planes are the wave of the future so it is relatively unnecessary.

    everything people have posted, + a change of clothes (shirt / socks / UW) and deodorant, because all that running around the airport can make one sweaty. i'll often change in the plane, or wherever i have a change of planes.

    Audiotechina ath m50 headphones
    iphone
    iphone recharger thingy
    valerian root and benadryl to sleep
    whatever mens magazines look readable in the terminal, usually details/esquire/gq...I stay far away from those "style" sections though =/
    extra undershirt and underwear to change into before landing...new underwear can change your mood for the better no matter what. I prefer Uniqlo.
    pretty much the headphones take up the entire bag.

    half a girlfriend (travel bag you know...). Sometimes it's tough deciding if I should bring the top of the bottom. Bottom usually wins.
