How to Make Your Plane Seat More Comfortable – You Need the Jet Seat Cushion

Unless you travel business class, which I don’t, I think we agree that plane travel is uncomfortable. You’re crammed into very uncomfortable seats, with body parts twisted in ways they just shouldn’t be. After a long haul flight, I usually walk off with back pain, neck pain, numb legs, you name it.

So, how do you improve airline seat comfort without having to sell a kidney for a business class upgrade? Chris Aliberti realized that all of this discomfot is directly related to the poor weight distribution of the seat. And he invented the Jet Seat – an airline travel seat cushion which is doctor approved, made of inflating foam that allows you to sink into any seat and eliminate pressure points.

The Jet Seat conforms to the natural shape of your body, and with two separate valves you can separately customize the thickness of the cushion. It’s portable and rolls up to 60% smaller to fit into included carry bag for easy transportation and packing.

The Most Beautiful Places in Antarctica

Antarctica, a vast wilderness of ice and snow, is a continent that defies the imagination.

I was fortunate enough to have had the chance to visit Antarctica myself, one of the planet’s truly last frontiers that offers a travel experience unlike any other. In a world where travel destinations often blur into familiar landscapes and tourist traps, Antarctica remains unique. From towering glaciers and pristine icebergs to diverse wildlife, embarking on an adventurous Antarctica cruise is one of life’s most premier travel experiences. I thought I’d highlight just a handful of the many beautiful places found in Antarctica, places you often don’t even see in magazines or on Instagram. Some cruises crossing the infamous Drake Passage to the Antarctic Peninsula even extend the sense of adventure by also sailing onwards to exotic islands off the coast of Africa as part of a longer voyage.
