Slept in coach on overnight flight. Major pain in neck next day. Would bucky or pillow be better next time?

In brief: It depends

In general, i would be hesitant to accept any advice that recommends a particular brand of pillow.
What you should aim for is a pillow that provides enough support to be comfortable but which doesn't bend your neck too far. You should make a personal decision on what would allow you to rest comfortably on a flight. Focus on keeping your neck straight, and not bent, with your head comfortable.
