|Subject: First Class Sleeper|
There was a thread on First Class Sleepers, the inflatable back rests for long flights, not too long ago on the Zine. The discussion prompted me to purchase one which I used on my most recent trip to Australia. I used it scrunched down so it didn't stick up over the back of my seat as the website shows, but I thought it was dandy. My friend reported that on the trip south, I slept 11 hours straight. However, I usually sleep 9 hours, so I'm not sure it was only the Sleeper to account for the extra 2 hours.
On the way back, however, our Brisbane-LA flight lost an engine 4.5 hours into the 12-hour trip & we had to turn back to Sydney, another 5 hours. Then, after a short sleep at a Sydney hotel, Qantas put us on the Sydney-LA flight for a 13-hour trip. Then the Sleeper really paid off in my comfort!
I found it at a local retailer. My only complaint is that the plastic or vinyl used for the blow-up tube smells just awful & the odor persists after lots of time in fresh air outside, not to mention more hours than I care to count in an aircraft. http://www.firstclasssleeper.com/
I'm way behind on travelogue, sadly. Returning just before Thanksgiving was great, especially seeing my precious grandchildren. Takes time away from the computer, tho.
