So on FRA-SIN I advised Hoon (LSS) that I was going to try out a new 'mini-mattress' on the 380 R Suite bed - I headed to WC as Hoon was commencing bed assembly - on return it was almost completed with bottom cover already fitted:
I was not going to burden her to remove and refit it after mattress added so I just lay it on top of bottom cover and slept straight on top of mattress:
And the finished product with top cover / quilt / doona fitted and Teddys nestled:
I did ask Hoon if she had ever seen any other clown ever BYO mattress in the past - she giggled her way through the answer 'NO and I have checked other Crew Members and none of them seen it either!'
Inflation / deflation is really easy and takes less than a minute either way - I did buy the full length version by mistake but don't regret that now - given how easily it bends / folds I have no concerns about the shape of the bed I am going to use it on.
My Verdict: 99% sure sleep in considerably enhanced on the 2 tests so far - I do consume plenty Champs and also do take sleeping tabs on o/n flts but am not a great sleeper - I do think I slept better with this mattress - TBH I don't really know if the RED or BLACK side of mattress is ground side or sleeping side - the BLACK side feels softer and smoother so I guess RED side is ground side. Whatever I did not find it uncomfortable to sleep straight on top of the mattress.
I may have slightly over-inflated it on 2nd test - next time I will not inflate quite so fully and try it that way - but up until now from me to RF it's
