Unless you’ve got the cash to travel business class, it’s a well-known fact that no one really sleeps on planes. This pillow won’t make it easy, but then again nothing will. What it will do is support your neck on all sides, front included, without pushing your whole head off the seat cushion thanks to its flat back. Plus it’ll squish down to a surprisingly compact size once you’re done dozing in and out for five hours. Fitting headphones on at the same time is definitely possible, though not super comfortable, but the flip side is that this is the one of the very few options that will actually cradle your head. Sometimes in life you have to make trade-offs, and travel pillows are one of them.
