An experienced traveler has revealed a clever trick to make a flight more comfortable if you don’t have a neck pillow: create one out of clothes.

Kristen Black from Atlanta, Georgia uploaded a video to TikTok of herself putting her clothes into a rolled-up sweater and then wrapping it around her neck in a ‘ta-da’ moment before boarding a Ryanair flight.

She explained: ‘I came up with the idea while I was sleeping at the airport. My friend Aya and I had been traveling a lot and booking the cheapest flights we could find, which of course always leave at odd times.

“I took a sweater from my backpack to rest my head on, but since we were sleeping somewhat upright in the chairs, I needed it to stay around my neck.

‘I had the idea to throw some other clothing in it, roll it up and tie it around my neck to make a better pillow.

“Then I realized this would also be the perfect packing hack since I had extra bags of souvenirs I bought during my trip. I wasn’t sure how I was going to fit everything into my backpack to board the plane.

“My initial plan was to wear a bunch of clothes on the trip back, to make room for memories, but thinking about the ‘neck pillow’ killed two birds with one stone.”

The freelance graphic designer and content creator, who plans to return to Paris soon, says others should definitely try her trick, perhaps using a pillowcase as an alternative to a sweater.

She concluded: ‘Honestly, I think if you’re sitting in the aisle seat you should give it a try as you don’t have much to rest on.

‘If you’re sitting by the window, I think just bringing a pillowcase would work, as many of my followers mentioned. Tucking your clothes into this would probably be even better than my makeshift neck pillow.
