With no in-flight meals and seats that pack in passengers like sardines in a can, air travel is getting less comfortable than ever. But until someone invents the transporter beam (come on, MIT!), it's still the best way to cover a long distance. With this Inflight Comfort Kit ($12), at least you can ameliorate some of the worst of it. It includes a pillow to rest your head on, a mask to keep the glare out, and, perhaps most importantly, earplugs to block the sound of the guy next door trying to engage you in hours-long boring conversation.
