Look for: a neutral color to hide any unwanted stains while traveling.
Noise canceling headphones
Constant humming of jumbo engines is not commonly characterized as a soothing sound. Easily drown out the constant, sometimes throbbing, engine sound with noise cancelling headphones. The canceling headphones will also eliminate unwanted sounds from obnoxious passengers, crying babies and other annoyances causing disruption to much desired sleep. The distress is removed while delivering your choice of soothing sounds.
Look for: a compact size with a retractable cord to maximize space.
Head and Neck support
Few will argue that airplane seats are comfortable after a long haul flight. The body part that takes the brunt of discomfort is the neck. Sleep deprived after a long haul flight with a sore and stiff neck is not a desirable way to arrive at a final destination. Head and neck support is important while sleeping on airplanes although very difficult to manage since many pillows support the neck while leaving the head rolling around for hours while sleeping on a long flight.
Look for: a small, one size fits all head and neck support to reduce soreness and stiffness for not only long haul flights but short flights as well.
