Improved comfort during flight

Folding tray with adjustable height
  (+3)

Normally passengers lean the seat backward to take a nap. I personally feel at times, uncomfortable in such position and prefer to lean forward. I wish to use the hinged tray mounted on rear of the seat in front of mine to rest my head. But there are two problems, (1) the tray supports & the tray itself are sometimes weak & may get broken, (2) the existing height of tray relative to my seat requires that I stretch my body, causing discomfort.

To overcome these problems, I propose to provide the following : (1) stronger tray supports (2) arrangement to adjust height of tray relative to seat. This would not only help lean forward & have sound sleep without stiff neck but also increase individuals’ comfort during taking meals or using laptop or doing writing work.

       You should also be able to detach the cushion from your headrest and stick it on to the table with little velcro tabs.

       I learnt to sleep on flights with my head on the meal-tray aboard an American Airlines flight.   

       Big people = big space between seats = space to stick my head.   

       The next flight I caught was on Japan Airlines. I'm sure all the other passengers either had a good giggle at the strange white dude banging his head on the headrest of the seat in front, or though I had taken leave of my senses. [+]
