Pillow Talk

Galley Friend K.T. sends along this story about American Airlines: They're removing all of the pillows from their MD-80 planes. Where's the outrage?

I fly the Super-80 on American fairly often, and I must say that I enjoy the pillows. The public line American is taking is that not having pillows will streamline the cabin-cleaning process between flights, saving the airling "in the mid-six figures" annually. Also, they maintain that the adjustable headrests make the pillows obsolete.

But not so fast: If I remember a helpful article in British Airways' in-flight magazine correctly, the proper place to put your pillow is not behind your neck, but behind your lower back. Surely we have some expert readers to weigh in on this important quesiton . . .
