This Company Invented a Way to Fly Coach Comfortably

by Evil HR Lady on November 29, 2016

If you’re getting ready to get on a plane to go to Grandma’s house for Thanksgiving, you’re probably flying coach. And you’ll probably want to sleep, but won’t be able to because only small children can get comfortable enough to get good rest in coach. (But they don’t rest. They scream and kick the back of your chair.) And even the act of leaning your seat back may invoke the wrath of the person sitting behind you. So you’ll arrive at Grandma’s tired and cranky.

Enter the SleepySelfieStick. When company founder Todd Vance tweeted at me, I laughed at the totally bizarre-looking product, and then shared a video of it with friends. Then I asked Todd to contact me, because heaven knows we all would like to have a better experience during our airplane flights.

Vance conceived the product after numerous transatlantic flights and one horrible turbulence-filled flight to the West Coast that left his neck “trashed.” He was so exhausted that his trip was disrupted. He hoped to solve this and allow us mere mortals who don’t get business-class seats to have better flights.

TSA actually lets this on a plane? Looks like it could be used as a weapon. Ergonomics look atrocious hyperextension of your neck, shoulders not relaxing, scrunched core to limit breathing.
The existing “neck pillows” for travel are a much better idea.

Kudos for having an idea, but I don’t see it actually working for most people.

I’m thinking you would also have random people {also flight attendents} constantly waking you up to ask if you’re alright, or asking your seatmate if you’ve passed out. Also, it looks a lot like a toilet plunger. Not something I’d want to look like I have my face stuck in. Just sayin’.
