“I used to never be able to sleep on planes, but this is the best travel hack,” she said while on a plane.
She then showed herself blowing into a hole in the pillow to inflate it.
‘It’s an inflatable airplane cushion, but it’s not like the others. It comes with earplugs and an eye mask so you get the best night’s sleep ever,” she said.
The 27-year-old then demonstrated how she took a nap with the pillow.
“It rests on your lap or on the tray in front of you, with holes for your face and arms,” she said, burying her face in the headrest.
Courtney sat back up and praised the pillow again.
“I never travel without it now,” she said at the end of the clip.
Her video divided people on the internet, with many gushing over the pillow and thanking her for the recommendation.
