10 Best Travel Accessories For a Red Eye Flight

Flying can already be an unpleasant experience, a red eye flight can be the worst.  You might want to get your hand on some of these travel accessories to make your red eye flight(s) a little less miserable.

Travel and neck pillow

Forget the old donut pillow you used to travel with, this is one of the best travel accessories for being comfortable and catching some sleep while flying.  Wear it like a messenger bag and position it to provide support for your neck and torso, similar to how side-sleepers lie down in bed at home.  You’ll be asleep before you know it.
