A business/first class seat

You could see how much it is to buy up now? Day of they’ll probably give you an offer but you’re banking on their being seats available. Price will probably be lower (but if only 1 seat left could be astronomically higher) than what you see today but it’ll be a risk.

Wear sweatpants and a hoodie, you’ll want to be comfy and warm. Bring socks, kindle/book, headphones, snacks, neck pillow, travel blanket. Chug water like crazy as you’ll get very dehydrated flying that long. Also, your feet and legs will be swollen so try and get some compression socks. Would also bring lip balm, lotion, face wipes, toothbrush and toothpaste, empty water bottle and ask the attendant to refill, eye mask for sleeping.

Notebook/laptop to write down thoughts, make sure you have Spotify or music avail.

I’m not condoning drug use of any kind, but if you have a sleeping pill or Tylenol PM, I’d take it and pass out for 8hrs. Only if you have a rx. I’d avoid carbonated drinks in flight as they’ll make you super gassy due to the air pressure.

Most importantly, get up and walk around frequently, do some squats and stretch. It’s a big flight but you can make the best of it!

Upgrade to first class if you can

I would recommend neck pillow and noise cancelling headphones. That is a really long flight. Are you flying NYC to Singapore?

LAX to Singapore

Most airlines have complimentary toiletry kits, pillows, noise reduction headphones, etc for the mid tier and first class, or even main cabin economy on certain airlines. You should be fine.

I did SFO-SIN a few years ago in premium economy. Eye mask, noise cancelling headphones, compression socks were all helpful.

Break up your flight into 7 hour flights and stay overnight in each connection city. You can't prepare for a 20 hour flight, it will be pure torture.
