Airline pillows really need to be upgraded

Airlines offer elements to add comfort to a flight, right? Let's ignore the fact that we have to pay for them. And a decent sleep is the most desired result for the majority of travellers. But our options are still limited to the old school, no real support, pillow.  

You see, after a long flight over seas to Germany I awoke with the worst neck pain imaginable. This was due to the sad excuse of a pillow that was supplied by the Air Canada Airline. I think that airlines should supply all passengers with those nifty neck pillows for those traveling long distances. This would provide proper neck support which would eliminate that sore and stiff neck and shoulder pain so common among travelers.

A person uncomfortable and pained is much more likely to point out anything else that upsets them, while a person feeling good is less likely to complain about the nitty gritty. 

The airline industry is a very competitive market so small things like this can go a long way!

  1. Hey man, I hear you with the neck support! Every time I fly I say I'm gonna buy one of those, but then I don't. Why not just provide the more useful product? It can't be much more in the end if they are already providing pillows.
