  • Apparently with a travel pillow, the best way to use it is in the opposite direction so that the “meat” of it is in front of you under your chin. This supports your neck a lot more and you are less likely to get woken up as your head tilts and falls forward.

    I’ve not tried this yet, but will be on my next flight!

  • Recently whilst on a holiday in the states I purchased a set of ClearArmor 141001 earmuffs, they were about $25USD. While packing I decided to put them in my carry on luggage, It was one of my smartest loves ever.

    Ear plugs are uncomfortable and don’t work nearly as well, but these earmuffs did an amazing job of blocking out most of the aircraft engine noise, I could sneak a set of ear buds under them and they were so comfortable.

    Neck pillow + ear muffs + sleeping mask/eye cover = aeroplane sensory deprivation sleeping paradise. Happy snoring.
