I did look at those and decided that they are way to wide around the back on the neck to provide comfortable body position.
Notice that the pillow on the link attached to my previous post has that part slimmer so the back of a body can lean comfortably on the back of the seat.

I probably would hate it anyway, and that's probably also the reason why we don't see many people on a plane using any of those pillows...

But: I could imagine that this pillow could be pretty comfortable, although why they made it so huge?

No doubt, aside from being hideous it doesn't look remotely comfortable. Now those meat pillows underneath, I'd buy one just for the novelty, lol.

Count me in as the third who uses the travel pillow backwards.

However, I wouldn't mind buying that one above from amazon.

Do the traditional travel pillows push your head forward in an airplane seat? I see this as a potential problem, considering that the seats don't recline back very much.

What is your experience with your travel pillow and which brand do you use?
Inflatable is a must. Get one at one of the airport shops.

gave up on travel pillows 28 years ago. i have a travel "sweater" that is rolled up
into the preferred shape and it has been wonderful. it has logged a million miles or more.

Get this one: https://trtltravel.com/products/trtl-travel-pillow

It's very easy to pack. I never could sleep on planes until I got this one. When you try it on at home, make sure you sit in a chair like you would a plane seat--it won't feel right sitting at a kitchen table

I've never used a travel pillow. It's just one more think I have to find space for when space is at a premium. And I don't want extra crap tethered to my bags. I'm a travel minimalist.

Much like others, except that I was a commuter by train. I always had my travel pillow. It was an inflatable. I believe it was the Lewis and Clark one. Very easy to blow into. Only took like 2 or 3 puffs at most. It was easy enough and quite quick to deflate as well. Easily adjustable if you needed a little less air. A very light tap.
I had tried the memory foam pillow but grew tired of stuffing it into my back pack.

I used wrap around sun glasses, and foam cushioned earphones, BT connected to my iPhone. I had 3 different music lists to select from. Each list had more than 20 songs loaded.
