The best advice is to avoid being totally static throughout your flight this includes night flights.
The steps below may help to reduce your risk:
- Drink plenty of water during the flight and avoid alcohol and caffeine during the flight (and before)
- Take only short periods of sleep & do not take sleeping pills
- Try not to cross your legs whilst seated
- Walk around the cabin whenever you can
- Carry out the simple in-flight exercises provided by your airline
- Wear loose fitting comfortable clothes and shoes when travelling
