My sister flew from Montana to Sydney, Australia yesterday and said it was amazing. It sure gets rave reviews.

I always lose travel pillows. Usually just buy a cheap one before I leave and then lose it before the return flight.

Thanks for this thread. I've had that travel pillow bookmarked for a while, just haven't pushed the buy button yet. I thought at first it looked like it would be smaller than my regular travel pillow and would fit better in the suitcase but maybe not.

I've lost a few travel pillows too migb. My favorite decided to stay at CDG airport in Paris. I think it was last seen in a bathroom there. I don't blame it for wanting to live in France though. Lol.

I bought it. I found it again recently. Haven't used it yet. I wasn't impressed when I opened the package.
I bought my first u-shaped cushy pillow at an airport a couple of weeks ago for a cross-country flight. I liked that one. Will only take it for long flights. Maybe I find this one again and try it out. It seemed very "hard".

59.00 no way. I have bought so many and they end up lost on a plane or somewhere along the way. I did have a memory foam neck pillow but so hot.

Since we usually traveled in March, my travel pillow was my raincoat!

I had a smallish U-shaped one but lost it.

In winter, I tuck in an extra pillowcase and my coat becomes my pillow.

It's really amazing how quickly they disappear in the airport. I need a better way to carry them in the airport when they aren't packed in my carryons. Something I can secure to the handles, either a built in strap or a separate stuff bag.

Very smart, starrs!

mlgb, I had mine strapped to the outside of my rolling case. I think it got nabbed.

We're traveling over Thanksgiving, and I think I'm going to buy one and try it out.

I have the Kuhi travel pillow and really like it.
Amazon Amazon
I read a TON of reviews of various pillows before I bought it. I even take it on long car rides. I never liked the inflatable ones I had.

How do you hook up that footrest thing on a plane? I can't tell from the pics.

It hangs from the hinges of the tray table, but the tray table does not need to be down to use it. I wondered about whether it would impact/move the seat in front of you, but the reviews seem to say it doesn't.

Iíll only take an inflatable pillow, which narrows the field. If I were willing to deal with a carry-on pillow, the ones you guys have recommended look fine to me. But I donít think Iíd like something that wraps around me like a muffler. I get claustrophobic enough on planes.

I can't imagine that foot hammock wouldn't bother the person in the seat in front of you. One of the videos shows the person kind of swinging their legs in it. I think that would have some sort of impact of the seat in front.

Some years ago I bought a two-in-one down travel pillow from The Company Store. It was quite expensive but now seems to be on sale. It is a very small rectangle which comes in handy in various ways on the plane. When you get to your hotel or whatever, you unzip the pillow and remove the interior, which is a down filled pillowcase for a standard size pillow. It’s not particularly fluffy, but makes the board you’ve been given to sleep on a good deal more comfortable. It comes in several colors so you remember to take it with you. It has saved my life on numerous occasions.

shouldbewriting, I have the same pillow and agree with all you wrote. Someone posted on Fodors long ago and I bought it. I will check out the Company Store. I could use a new one!
