Airplane seat cover aims to ease germ worries

WHAT Sure Fit Travel Cover

HOW MUCH $14.99

WHAT IT IS A fabric cover that fits over the back of an airplane, train or bus seat.

WHAT'S GOOD It's simple to install, and the material - 94 percent polyester and 6 percent spandex - is very soft. It fit the seat and didn't slide or become bunched up.

WHAT'S NOT In this age of the H1N1 flu pandemic, it's impossible to know if the cover can protect passengers from such potent germs (it's not advertised as being able to block bacteria or viruses). When installed, it covers the tray lock on the back of your seat. The passenger behind you can move the cover aside, but some passengers might cry foul. It only covers the back of your seat, not the cushion. When the pouch is folded into its case, it measures a somewhat large 7 by 61/2 by 3 inches.
