In brief: SURE!

But so can getting up and walking around the cabin when safe, and while sitting contracting your calf muscles and stretching your legs every 30-60 mins.

In brief: Can help anytime

Compression stockings can help alleviate tired legs and feet any time, whether you are on a long flight or not.
As dr. Villaplana said though, getting up and walking around and stretching while on the plane certainly helps too.
