I know I didnt feel too good(maybe a slight sz) after flying from Orlando to Charlotte. It was at the end of a very busy vacation tho, and maybe I was just too tired.
If a person is flying from Europe to say North America, it is smart to get up and walk every hour or so to keep the blood flowing in the limbs. Long flights the doctors like us to walk around (what little walking we can do) so there isn't any circulation issues that can develop from sitting cramped.

Example, flying from Los Angeles to Sydney is one of those flights where you will get cramps if you don't get up and move around. People can have circulation issues if they don't get up and walk every now and then.

If you don't stay on the same clock for taking your meds that can also throw you off. Stay on your "home clock" for medication time unless your body is forgiving in adjustments. My secondary clock (on my watch) is London/UTC. Pilots use it as universal time coordinated. I know how many hours off I am from UTC so that helps me.

Well I live in Ireland and fly to spain quite a lot which is only 2 hours and I still feel horrible after it. Maybe its travel sickness and nothing got to do with epilepsy but if I am flying more than 4 hours or so i seem to get a sz :(
