LOTS of different little things that you can pull out every few minutes has been what's worked for us with DD on flights back and forth from Boston/Paris. Get a colorful zippered purse or a backpack at the thrift shop and fill it with finger puppets, crayons, stickers, small sheets of colorful paper, a couple tiny jars of Playdoh, a mini Magnadoodle, small books, snacks, a play scarf, etc. Don't forget a favorite stuffed animal or blankie.
Also, spend some time going through the stuff in the seat pocket---magazines, barf bags, and headphones can become ingredients in games when given the chance.
