Break up the time in weird but better-sounding increments. An eight-hour flight is still under 10 hours. It's 2 x 4 hours, and 4 hours are ok to pass. The first and last hour don't count because taking off / descending is entertaining (well, almost) and everything sub 1 hour is ok anyway. Cross out another hour for eating (including longingly staring at the trolleys, come on, serve me already!) So we're down to a much shorter time if I succeed in fooling myself :)

I'd say look out the window however on every flight I've been on that had a window seat every one around me choose the ever popular sleep method.

If however you are on a more modern plane then you can look at the flight information/map screen. Once you get bored of that or if you don't have one you can sit in silence and contemplate the oddities of life.
