    Travelling London -> NYC and back next month. Sadly I don't have enough miles to upgrade my flight so I'm travelling at the back of the plane.

    I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for travel pillows? There seems to be loads of different designs to choose from but I'd like to get some first hand experiences rather than rely on the manufacturers' own product descriptions if possible.

    Thanks!

    Hi Ben,

    Unfortunately, not something I've ever purchased (not because I don't fly Economy to the US - I think it's actually the best way to/from East Coast! Biz/First is generally a lot of miles/cash for what ends up being maybe 2 hours of actual sleep).

    Hopefully someone else can offer more specific advice on the pillow, but I think I'd probably opt for whatever is cheap but still has good reviews as a starting point - you'll probably find it#s fine and don't need to spend more.

    Nice - yeah I usually end up leaning forward on my arms (and then not being able to feel my hands for about 30 mins after!), so should probably invest in that second one myself....

    I won't lie, I would feel a bit embarrassed bringing that onto my seat. But who cares, at the end of the day, the comfort is worth it.

    Haha, I reckon any embarrassment probably fades completely by about the 3rd hour of a red eye in Economy. I'd happily look a lot sillier for comfort!
