MJ Day, Assistant Managing Editor: neck pillows, noise-cancelling headphones & airport spas
More from SwimLife
Seriously, all I want to do on planes is sleep and watch movies. It's really the only time I get to do either! So for me its very basic: the inflatable neck pillow—yes, I am that dork on the plane. I love this one by Eagle Creek.Bose A pair of noise-canceling headphones is also a must, and I really love my pair by Bose. Oh, and I will hit up an XpresSpa for a massage in the airport ANY chance I get! I have had surprisingly good ones there and it's great to chill out a little before a long flight.

From the Bose website:
Consider them your go-to headphones, wherever you go. The first in-ear noise cancelling headphones from Bose give you more control over how you listen than ever before, in all kinds of environments. Block the outside world with full-on noise reduction. Or, choose Aware mode and let some of it in—all while keeping your headphones on and your music alive with lifelike Bose® sound. Wherever your day takes you, QC®20 headphones keep you connected. To the beat of your music, and the pulse of what's around you.
