Forget the halfway for a minute.
From the point she fell asleep, she slept twice as long as the rest of the flight after waking. Does that smell like 2/3 + 1/3 to you?
Back to the halfway bit...
She slept 2/3 of the second half of the flight.
She slept 2/3 of half of the flight.
She slept 2/3 * 1/2 of the flight.
