In the olden days of flying, passengers would dress in their Sunday best to board a plane, nowadays you are more likely to spot someone in their velour tracksuit with a bright yellow polyester travel pillow around their neck.
With this in mind, we decided to trawl the internet for some of the most ridiculous sleeping solutions out there and we weren’t disappointed. Luckily there were plenty of manufacturers who went to extremes with their creativity for producing travel pillows. Here are a few of our favourites…
