How To Spend Your Flight : Passing the Time

How To Spend Your Flight : Passing The Time

Most people begrudgingly consign themselves to long flights as the price they must pay in order to reach their destinations. Whether it be a vacation, a visit to friends or family, or a business trip, don’t let the time it takes to travel cut into your leisure or productivity. In fact, in-flight time is a great opportunity to get a variety of things done. Check out your options and consider your flight a gift of a few hours of downtime.

Watch a Movie…
If you are usually too busy to sit down at home and watch many movies, your flight is the perfect time. In flight entertainment systems often offer both recent releases and older classics, as well as a variety of short films, TV shows, and music videos. Turn to your airplane display as soon as the safety video is over, relax, and enjoy the show.

Read a Book…
About 21% of airline passengers read while they fly, and for good reason. If you are on a night flight, reading can help you fall asleep, an option 17% of passengers prefer. Also, chances are you haven’t had the chance to catch up on your books or magazines.

Go Online…
If you are like 25% of Trip Advisers 2013 survey respondents, you would choose one airline over the other if it’s a difference between having WiFi and not having WiFi. Luckily, most airlines now offer Internet access. You can chat with friends, solidify last minute trip details, or do some work while you fly.

Play Games…
Many an inflight entertainment system has games you can play with your seat neighbor. You can also bring your own deck of cards, travel chess, or checkers board.

Listen to Music…
If you turn your attention to your IFE systems, you will find that they not only offer movies and videos, but music, too. Choose from the wide selection of oldies and new releases to catch up on the latest trends in music, while drowning out the rest of the sounds of the flight.

From a book or game you brought yourself, to the plethora of options available on the IFE monitors and in flight entertainment systems, there is no shortage of fun and productive ways to spend your in-flight time. Before you know it, you’ll land and begin your next adventure.
