Airplanes aren't usually the most comfortable modes of transportation, but they can be made more bearable with the help of a travel pillow. The On Air travel pillow from Frontier might look like your run-of-the-mill neck supporter, but it has one feature to help it soar above the rest: it's inflatable. While other comfort-seeking travelers need to lug their pillows around, your friends will be able to deflate theirs and stow it in a small compartment upon arrival. Shop all travel accessories.
