Photos: Tech gadgets to make air travel time more productive

Maximize your productivity in-flight

There are the in-flight basics: Mobile phone, laptop, tablet, eye mask, compression socks, your own pillow and blanket (seriously, don't use the plane's). Then again, there are finessed versions of these items, and other convenience gadgets you might not even know exist;  all can help you to achieve your maximum productivity in flight. 

What's comfortable and conducive to working can vary from one pro to the next, so we've sought out items to suit those preoccupied with germs, those who must be as physically comfortable as possible, those who multitask with the tenacity they'd exert in their actual offices, those preoccupied with what's going on at home, and those in-between.
