Airplane Blanket Travel Tip

Airplane Blanket Travel Tip
Many planes have stopped supplying blankets for passengers. I have carried a blanket onto the plane for the last ten years, with all the new Low Cost Carriers entering the market; this has become a need, not a want.

There is nothing worst than feeling cold for 1-15 hours on a plane.

This is my travel blanket, I purchased a Hammock in Thailand made of heavy cotton, I use this daily for a blanket in my Hotel room, and once or twice per year for a hammock.

This is a multiple-use-gear item I carry; there are many uses for a Hammock that is the simple design, not the complicated designs.

I have actually shared this blanket with passengers on airplanes when the passenger next to me was freezing.

Note that me running it through the strap of my computer-camera bag keeps me from forgetting it and allows me to carry without effort.

I also recommend you use this on buses and trains.

So true, I couldn't imagine traveling without my travel blanket any more. And as you say there are so many more uses for them.

What a great idea, I like to sleep on fights, so buying a travel pillow and blanket with an eye mask is my personal favorite check some examples at
