I happened to come across a web site -- "My Travel Clinic (Inflight problems)" There was a comment about head lice -- "occassionally head lice and other skin parasites may be passed on through contact with airplane seats where previous passengers have been infested. It must be stated though, that most airlines carry out thorough cleaning of the cabin and other facilities between flights."
Have you ever seen a Southwest flight stop the passengers from entering while the cleaning xcrew is scrubbing down the seats? Probably not.
Try using TravelKleen(reusable)headrest protectors -- a very easy way to keep your hair clean and, best of all, the chances of getting head lice from someone else is greatly minimized.

TravelKleen's founder has traveled extensively domestically and internationally for a high-tech manufacturing company. Throughout the years, it became clear that (as part of the airline and rail industry's cost cutting endeavors) that the passenger seats (from the cleanliness standpoint) were not being maintained. In fact, the seats had become progressively filthier. Hair oils, food stains, perspirations were just some of the examples of - seat filth. Theater seats are even worse!
Sitting for hours on a dirty, smelly seat could no longer be tolerated. There was a need for a simple, inexpensive way for someone to travel or to enjoy a movie in a relaxed, fresh and hygienic way. Thus, TravelKleen's headrest was created to meet a very important and real need - for everyone.
