A long flight doesn't have to come with a stiff neck. The ezysleep travel pillow has a 360-degree enclosure so your neck is cushioned no matter which way your head lolls. It also comes with a stamp of approval from Alan Hedge, director of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Laboratory at Cornell University, and costs $31. A strap can loosen or tighten the circle to ensure a perfect fit.
Staying on a hotel's club floor usually means free food and access to a private bar. The Ritz Carlton sets a higher standard. Most properties have lush club floors with dedicated concierges and workstations with computers, printers, and fax machines. The San Francisco club level has a business center with meeting rooms so you can play host on the road. At the Ritz on Central Park West in New York City, guests can have a butler unpack and pack their luggage. Such added amenities cost about $100 a night.
A must-have for long-haul flights, this PoshAir Premium Cashmere JetElite sleeping bag has a cashmere exterior and an interior lined with 300-thread count Egyptian cotton.

Such luxury will cost you $699 for an extra large sleeping bag that is 3-feet wide and can accommodate a person up to 6'4" tall.
Reminiscent of the days when "clubs" served as a home away from home for businessmen, Truefitt & Hill's original London location, which opened in 1805, boasts Charles Dickens and Winston Churchill as past clients. Today, customers have tea and biscuits along with their shoeshines ($6) and hot-lather shaves ($65) to rejuvenate after a long flight or a day of back-to-back meetings. You can find a Truefitt & Hill in Chicago, London, and Toronto.
