Do you use your Memory Foam Pillow?

When we went last time I found an inflatable neck pillow with a nice soft outside liner. It clipped and tightened in front so you could relax your head forward. What I discovered was that on delta, they have those “wings” on the side of the seats to rest your head. I think I used my pillow just a little, but not much. I can’t decide if I need to bring it again or not, plus buy for my boys.
Do you use yours even with the head rests?

I have not been on a Delta plane with “wing” headrests but they sound great. I use an inflatable neck pillow and can’t live without it. So easy to pack / unpack and takes up little valuable space. Those memory foam pillows are comfy but wow what do you do with them as you tour on dry land?

I'm too short for the wings to really work. I have a neck pillow that's just a microfiber tube of lightweight microbeads kind of like this one

Bulky but doesn't weigh much. I like that I can shift the beads around where I need them.

Not all Delta planes have the winged headrests. They don’t work for me anyway so I bring my own pillow.

I always had a travel pillow and this time I lost it sometime after I landed in Paris and before I headed home. We were on an Air France 380 with the headrest wings. I will never go back to a travel pillow. I'm 5'4" and found these just about right. It was great to lean my head without worrying about a travel pillow to log around.

We have wings on our route, so I ditched the pillow and wing it.

Hmmmm, I thought all international flights had them. I guess I better ere on the side of precaution and take it, buy fir boys. I agree the inflatable ones are nice to tuck away when not in use.

I now remember I deflated it somewhat and used it as lumbar support, too.

We fly Delta but prefer our RS inflatable pillows. I can adjust to comfort. Convenient to pack in personal carry-on. I like to use the provided airline pillow as a lumbar support.
