I bought the pillow for traveling to the middle east. It is not for airplanes. It pushed my head too far forward. I did not like the roll for the neck. If the pillow was 2" thick and flat, it probably would have worked better. The airline pillow was actually more comfortable. On my trip back, I put the travel pillow in my checked luggage and didn't even use it. It will be a garage sale item since it is not returnable.
