    Default Travel(airplane) headrest?

    Hey guys for all of you who have had to do some long flights and travel, where do you recommend buying a headrest? I see people on planes that use them, but I've never tried. Usually my flights are very short just a couple of hours and I suck it up. But I have a couple long flights coming up in the very near future and I was wondering where I can get a good plane pillow or headrest so maybe/possibly I could try to sleep.

    You can buy them at the airport that are more expensive. I just buy mine from Wal mart actually, and they work great for international flights or longer flights I have been on. You can search around for some that massage and do all kinds of things. I recommend a good sleep mask also, that will make a long distance flight that much better.

    I travel a lot and never found a good headrest so I suck it up and upgrade to business or first where the seats go flat or close to it. (For domestic flights, use Virgin whenever you can. Their first class go close to flat) Its a bitch at first but build up your frequent flyer points by using one or two airlines and upgrades get a lot cheaper.

    Sorry I can't be much more help. Definitely recommend some noise canceling headphones, those have saved my sanity and helped me sleep on several flights.

    Never fly without it. Make sure you get a FIRM one. Mine is ployurethane foam. Also make sure its soft. Many of them are too fluffy and pillowy with ZERO support and your neck will hurt regardless.

    I prefer an inflatable one, as the full size take up lots of room in hand luggage.

    This one looks pretty good, I may get one myself.

    I would try amazon - I never liked these pillows too much though. I usually fly overseas once a year and being 6'4 I hate it - during the summer it's $1200 for coach so business is probably around 6K.
    Will never be able and willing to shell out that much money just for the flight.
    Definitely noise canceling headphones or at least some quality ear plugs are a must, xanax is a life saver for me as well.

    I actually knew what you meant, but figured I mess with you. Hope your busting your ass in the gym, to get ready for the next round.

    1. Find a petite girl to sit next to (more quad and shoulder room)
    2. Rest your sleepy head on her shoulder.
