Gear: Double-deck tray table gives you space to work and sip coffee

The double-decker Aero-Tray gives you a place to work and have coffee too when you're in cramped airplane quarters.

You can have your in-flight meal and use your laptop too if you’ve included the Aero-Tray in your carry-on gear.

The Z-shaped hinged collapsible workstation opens to become a double-decker desk atop the airplane tray table (or any surface). Or angle the top tier for more ergonomic typing on the tray table or your lap.

The bottom tier has a retractable shelf with a cup holder to minimize the risk of spills while multitasking. The pull-out shelf can also be used as a vertical support for a tablet computer.

The bi-level station mounts onto the airplane tray table with two elastic strips and rubber feet.


When folded, the 1½-pound plastic Aero-Tray measures 14 by 9½ by 1½ inches thick and can be stashed in a laptop bag or backpack.

It’s available in camel or black and costs about $60.
