What is a Red Eye Flight

A red eye flight, also referred to as late-night flight, is an overnight flight. The flight time is spent in the night, which disrupts the sleep and passengers may develop reddening in eyes. Such flights usually have their departure times after 9 pm in the evening and arrival times at the destination airport in the wee hours or early morning. Sometimes, change in time zones, is also possible during the flight. The aviation industry uses red-eye flights as an opportunity to attract travelers with cheap flight deals.

Benefits of Traveling with a Red Eye Flight

1. Save money as red eye flights are comparatively cheaper than regular fights
2. No productivity loss as you complete all important tasks of the day
3. Skip expensive hotel/service apartment rental for a day
4. Make the most of your next day business hours
5. Safe flight experience as atmosphere remains quieter at night
6. Low probability of delays in arrival or departure
7. Avoid peak hour on-road traffic congestion while commuting to the departure airport and getting around the destination city from the arrival airport

Challenges of Traveling with a Red-Eye Flight

Our body is tuned to work by day and sleep by night thanks to the Earth’s rotation leading to day and night without fail. The built-in self-sustained biological processes of the body including metabolism continue at its pace in a timely manner, which biologists call as Biological Clock.

Late night or early morning travel and/or change in the time zone often deprives travelers of a sound sleep. It also alters the biological clock leading to Circadian Rhythm Disruption (CRD) with common symptoms as follows:
1. Fatigue
2. Increased reaction time (e.g. delayed response to a stimulus, against a sting or obstacles while driving)
3. Decreased attention
4. Impaired memory
5. Distraction (lack of attention)
6. Irritability (anger or frustration)
7. Indifference or lack of interest

Tips to Minimize the Impact of Red-Eye Flight Challenges

1. Sleep well at home. How much sleep is enough? Any normal sleep duration that you would spend sleeping while at home.
2. If your daytime working hours don’t permit you to sleep, take some naps whenever possible. Remember, something is better than nothing.
3. Manage to take a 30-minute nap prior to a transmeridian flight or long flight
4. Use caffeine, listen to your favorite track, or watch movies (only if passengers sitting next to you is not disturbed) strategically during the flight to counteract circadian rhythm-induced sleepiness
5. Once you reach your destination, exposing yourself to bright daylight is a great way to reset circadian rhythms. It triggers the serotonin levels in the brain, improving well-being and promoting a positive mood.
6. To adapt quickly to a new time zone, adopt the sleep and eating patterns of that timezone: wake up in the morning, take breakfast and get out and exercise in the daylight.
7. Avoid sleeping in the day-light even if you are feeling tired as it sets the circadian rhythms back to the original timezone.

Popular Global Red Eye Flight Routes and Destinations

On all flight routes with flight time exceeding 4 to 5 hours important carriers operate red-eye flights. Take a look at the important international flight routes and destinations. You can see direct as well as connecting flights operating over there.

How Time Difference Affects a Red Eye Flight

Time-difference between zones plays an important role in defining the time lost or gained by passengers while traveling with a red-eye flight. The US has been broadly divided into six time zones as follows in descending order (region listed above is ahead of the region coming below by one hour):

  1. Eastern Standard Time (EST)
  2. Central Standard Time (CST)
  3. Mountain Standard Time (MST)
  4. Pacific Standard Time (PST)
  5. Alaska Standard Time (AST)
  6. Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST)

Therefore 5 hour time difference exists between HST and EST.

 Impact of timezone changes on Red Eye Flights

Passengers traveling from the cities located in a time zone of Hawaii, Alaska or Pacific to cities in Eastern Coast like New York City, Philadelphia or Miami lose their time while those traveling opposite to it gain time as they travel to a time zone which is late.

Let’s understand this with an illustration.

“Lisa asks her secretary to book a round-trip flight ticket on her behalf on a Sunday from HNL Airport of Hawaii to JFK Airport of New York (From Hawaii to Eastern Time Zone). The purpose of the visit is to attend a corporate meeting on the upcoming Monday scheduled between 11 am and 1 pm. What flight departure and arrival timings will suit Lisa the most on her forward and backward travel?”

Note: NYC is 6 hours ahead of Hawaii and flight time is 9 to 10 hours approximately.

From West to East of Lisa’s Journey (Forward)

Her secretary found 3 flight departures – 9 pm, 7 pm, and 5 pm on Sunday.

Applying time difference on flights from HNL to JFK let’s see the most suitable option

Actual Departure Time  @ HNL Departure Time as per Eastern Time Zone (@JFK) Expected Arrival Time @ JFK Actual Arrival Time @ JFK
9 pm (Sunday) 3 am (Monday) 6 am to 7 am (Monday) 12 noon to 1 pm (Monday)
7 pm (Sunday) 1 am (Monday) 4 am to 5 am (Monday) 10 am to 11 am  (Monday)
5 pm (Sunday) 11 pm (Sunday) 2 am to 3 am (Monday) 8 am to 9 am (Monday)

Obviously, of the 3 choices, the 3rd option would be most ideal that will give Lisa enough time space to reach the meeting venue. In no circumstances, she can take a flight departing later than 9 pm. Though she will have her night in the air, the boarding time is much earlier than what we defined (9 pm or later) for a redeye flight.

Conclusion: A domestic flight from West to East with a flight duration greater than 4 to 5 hour does not fit in the criteria of red-eye flight. Flights connecting Hawaii with Easter Time zones will always exceed this flight time. Flights from Hawaii to Mountain or from Pacific to Eastern Time may be redeye flights.

From East to West of Lisa’s Journey (Return)

Lisa’s secretary found 3 flight departures again – 9 pm, 10 pm, and 11 pm on Monday.

Applying the time difference factor on flights from JFK to HNL

Actual Departure Time  @ JFK Departure Time as per Hawaii Time Zone (@  HNL) Expected Arrival Time @ HNL Actual Arrival Time @ HNL
9 pm (Monday) 3 pm (Monday) 6 am to 7 am (Tuesday) 12 mid-night to 1 am (Tuesday)
10 pm (Monday) 4 pm (Monday) 7 am to 8 am (Tuesday) 1 pm to 2 am  (Tuesday)
11 pm (Monday) 5 pm (Monday) 8 am to 9 am (Tuesday) 2 am to 3 am (Tuesday)

Though after finishing the meeting Lisa can take a flight anytime. All three options fit well in the definition of red-eye flight (departing late night and arriving early morning), and will make her resume her office on the next Tuesday.

Conclusion: From east to west, the flight duration has to be at least 6 hours or more to be called as redeye flights. So flights from Eastern to Pacific Time zones may not be a redeye flight.

“So flight direction, time difference and flight time all has to be taken together in defining a redeye flight.”
