Surprise, surprise! Even judges on reality TV shows can get it wrong too! Turns out being on television doesn’t save you from hanging your head in shame, red-faced about having made a mistake. And what is this ‘it’ that those TV personages have got so wrong this time?
Well, economy-class travellers, say a big ‘Hello!’ to the Jetsleeper? The what? No, the Jetsleeper isn’t some new overnight airline service, it’s a pillow! Alright, maybe it’s slightly more than a pillow. The Jetsleeper works by being a self-expanding pillow with two straps. You hook one over the top of your seat and the second one over the armrest, thereby sparing yourself the pain of a stiff neck after a long-haul journey.
The Jetsleeper’s inventor, Tim Williams, had previously gone on ‘hit BBC2 series’ Dragon’s Den in an attempt to secure funding for his invention. However, the show’s panel of multi-millionaires—including Peter Jones, Theo Paphitis and Duncan Bannatyne—rejected the proposal.
Williams’ invention has come at just the right time. Now that U.S.-based carrier JetBlue has decided to charge for pillows on their flights, who’s to say that their European counterparts won’t follow suit? The Jetsleeper also ensures a more comfortable flight for travellers who can’t or won’t pay for an upgrade to business class. At around £20 per pillow, it’s certainly a lot cheaper than paying for a Club World seat on a British Airways flight, and much more affordable than having a private cabin on Singapore Airlines.
