Inflatable Travel Pillows
You know that I spend a fair bit of time in planes, and I've seen these inflatable pillows on sale for years and years now in in-flight magazines, or occasionally mentioned in newspaper travel articles - but I've NEVER seen one being used on a plane.
It's no surprise that sleeping in Economy class on long haul flights isn't fun and it isn't easy, and I'm not entirely sure that this would help. What happens if you're in the aisle seat and someone needs to clamber past/over you to get out to the toilet? Not a chance if there's that giant pillow blocking the way. Do you have to deflate it for mealtimes? Good grief, then you'd have to blow it up again!
I think that by the time I'd actually blown one up, I'd be so exhausted that I'd pass out. Maybe that's the idea? You don't sleep, you just collapse from oxygen depletion? Has anyone got one of these? Do you know if they work? If you want to give it a try, you can buy one HERE.
