Your first mistake was flying a budget airline. That $95 round trip flight roped you in like a siren luring a sailor to his death. Your second mistake was traveling without the Trtl Travel Pillow Plus.
When you are packed like a sardine and have the misfortune of a middle seat, Trtl can help you fall asleep. Designed for sleep on the road, it also works great on long train rides or lunch break naps. Pair it with a silk eye mask and noise-canceling headphones for the ultimate travel experience.
After watching four plane crash movies one evening, I developed a case of extreme flight anxiety. I personally love this pillow because I will do anything to sleep through turbulence. I used to pray for a window seat so I could rest my head on the germy walls, but I am no longer dependent on sheer luck anymore. The Trtl pillow has made it to where I can fall asleep sitting up nearly anywhere.
What’s awesome about it is that the Trtl Pillow Plus is half the size of a traditional travel pillow and its patented design is scientifically proven to hold your head in a better ergonomic position with height-adjustable neck support and the breathable mesh fabric helps regulate temperature. On top of that, the scarf is made of super soft hypoallergenic microfleece that is machine washable. Which is great because once again, plane germs! Lastly, it is much easier to fit into your carry on than the U-shaped bean bag you have been lugging around.
If you are worried that the travelers next to you will look at you strangely, just remember that they are the ones missing out. Apply your moisturizer. Fasten your neck scarf. Get ready for take-off and dream about better days. Maybe one day you will have first-class tickets and your seat will turn into a bed. But until that happens, allow Trtl to help you out.
