The short hose works wonders
I have a Z1 Auto for backpacking, which has made my life much easier, except for the lack of a shorter hose from the CPAP to the mask. The 18 inch works wonders at reducing pack volume and for arranging my sleeping space. See, in cold weather especially, and in a small tent, I keep the battery, and the Z1 in the sleeping bag so that I don't get rained out by my own breath condensation - or just try to suffocate when I wrap the longer tube around my neck. With the 18 in tube, this is a much easier task. I expect this to be the case on the plane as well.
