Boeing to offer ‘Cuddle Chairs’ to Economy Passengers

Jack had to take a six hour long flight from New York to Los Angeles. Having slept for just four hours over the last two days, he felt it imperative to use the flight to catch up on some sleep. Jack had hoped he would swim in the ocean of deep slumber during his flight. Instead, he got a sore neck because of resting his head on the windshield, got pulled up by the lady sitting next to him for resting his head on her shoulders and found out that he was a tad too tall to bend down and rest his head Read more [...]

  1. Hello,

    Ref. Your Boeing Cuddle Seat Article – I have already developed and patented the standalone sit up and sleep personal backpack version – US Patent Number 8,333,308.

    I have already produced a backpack product to rest/ sleep sitting on short/ long haul travel, sitting in any transport mode, be it by air, bus, train, car or ferry.

    While the recent Boeing backpack idea is aimed at an airplane seat, my backpack patent relates to all forms of travel. It includes a soft removable chin rest and armrest and additionally provides contents security while resting or sleeping sitting up. It holds the user in a comfortable good upright posture and allows the user to make full use of any seat’s headrest. It further allows sleep while avoiding neck and back strain. It protects hair style while sleeping and even face makeup is protected. Sleeping sitting upright avoids blood pooling, ie dark circles/ bags forming under the eyes. When sleeping this way on long haul, the user awakens looking just as fresh as when he or she boarded the flight!

    Boeing’s current patent is uni-functional and fixed to a seat, whereas mine is multi-functional, ie it’s a personal carry-on allowing the traveller to store valuables in the backpack and secondly it provides tremendous protection for the backpack’s contents as the traveller, when using the backpack in sleep mode, wears the bag on the front and hugs it using the armrest at the front of the backpack knowing that he or she will awaken if someone tries to open the backpack whether the person is travelling by bus, plane or any other mode of seated transport.

    Please see for further information. We are currently seeking distribution licensees.

    Thank you,
