"They"

While this has been my experience for some flights, the last time i flew back home to the US not only were no headphones given out, but the screens were from the 80s and better yet there was no electricity to charge your phone for the 9 hour flight 🤷‍♂️

u/rambyprep 12d ago

A lot of trans-atlantic flights seem to use older planes for some reason. Lufthansa and Delta in particular fly old 767s and A340s between Europe and the US when they have much newer planes elsewhere in their fleet.

At least, this was case a couple of years ago, may have changed with covid.

u/Inevitable_Thanks721 12d ago

One of the most stressful things a plane goes through is pressurization cycles. Transatlantic flights go through far fewer than planes on short routes that might be on several flights per day.

u/SunsetB 12d ago

I was seated on a 12 hour flight next to a man who did this; it was fascinating. He didn't look bored and didn't use any of the in-flight entertainment so it seemed intentional. He ate his meals and just sat there in total silence. Dude didn't even get up to pee.

209

u/shiddyfiddy 12d ago

He sounds really hardcore, but I am fairly similar on long trips. It's guilt free time to do absolutely nothing if I want to, and so I do. I nap a lot (easy without a pillow??), but I'm also just sitting there thinking about whatever I like. Working through a hobby project plan. Fantasies about what I'd do with a billion dollars, going over really good memories, win some imaginary arguments, etc etc

It's a mini vacation for me. I get bored like anyone else, but in a travel environment, at most I'll bring a newspaper or magazine just in case.

(and I'm definitely not going to talk to anyone around me omg)

u/CounterEcstatic6134 12d ago

For me, it's not boredom that's the problem. It's the anxiety inducing thoughts that pop up, for which you can't do anything.. So, the TV or music is just a distraction.

Hey, if you pay your bills and have the friends/family you want, not everyone will judge you. Some people live in temples and meditate like it's their full time job.

They’re really totally fine if you only take them a couple times a year and don’t drink when you do. Someone taking them so they don’t have a panic attack on a plane or at the dentist isn’t gonna wake up and become a mumble rapper next month. That’s ridiculous. Not how addiction works at all.

15

u/addledhands 12d ago

If Xanax was as addictive as people are making out in this thread, it would be illegal. As long as you treat it as a highly addictive drug and use it only for its intended, occasional purpose, you will almost definitely be fine.

so they don’t have a panic attack ... at the dentist

Slept half of that too. My butt was hurting a lot on that one though and had to keep shifting.

It might be too dark to read, it's night so there's no real view unless you're on a motorway (even then it's just a motorway), I'm usually conserving the battery on my ancient phone, and I can never sleep while sat bold upright.

When I found out my dad died, the Kirk Cameron show was playing. I got up, ran with my blanket screaming and my sister exclaimed "what's wrong". I cried out "dad's dead", tripped on my blanket, headbutting my bedroom door and fell onto my bed. I'll always remember that afternoon because it's tragic but at the same time stupid and comical.

I watched a futile and stupid gesture and this is what I like to think it was.

My drive was for 10 hours. I was angry and sad. Music had no joy in it and some of the songs made me cry really ugly so I turned off the radio and just kept driving.

My dad developed Parkinsonism after having a stroke. 10 years later he is not doing great. Then my stupid grandma ignored all our warnings and got covid, didn't tell anyone, came to mom's house, spread it to everyone. Dad's fragile body couldn't handle it. This was 10 months ago.

Lost my only brother 3 weeks ago while I was on a vacation on the other side of the world. We were both in our mid 20s, so needless to say it was massively unexpected and completely destroyed myself and my parents who I was traveling with. That entire flight home, was the longest most awful experience, you want to focus on anything to get your mind off of it, but nothing can distract you from the thoughts in your mind. So you end up doing nothing, then starting a show, and subsequently turning it off 5 minutes later cause you absolutely weren’t watching for any of it. 13 hours later, you get off a plane, slept none, and just have 0 drive to do anything else. Im sorry for your loss, hope you’re finding a new path with grace.

My aunt did that 11 years ago, on a 5 hr direct flight to Anchorage, for my brother’s wedding. Dad picked her up at the airport and she was STEAMING mad! Only thing she has to read was the airline magazine in the seat. He asked her what she was thinking, she knew it was a long flight, why not bring a couple books at least or pick up some magazines at the airport?

Turns out the last time she’d flown previous was in the early 90s when she went to Australia. She thought there would be a movie. They watched three movies from LA to Sydney, why didn’t they have any from Minneapolis to Anchorage?

u/Zer0C00l 12d ago

I think airlines are starting to care less and less about the in seat thing, and holy hell am I glad. It is so annoying when some little jackass behind me can't stop mashing the screen for the entire 10 hour flight all because he doesn't wanna use his iPad. Plus those things in the seat seem to break constantly while my phone doesn't.

Yep, I agree. I just wish they would universally give us usb power in seat. Lugging around the battery backups just in case the plane today doesn’t have power is frustrating if you need your device to finish traveling on the other end.

I’m with you. I go out of my way to find jeans that are stiff and don’t contain any stretchy material. I wear them every damn day unless the weather calls for shorts.

I dislike stretchy jeans and I hate sweat pants. Wearing them out in public makes me feels the same way as going out without brushing my teeth or putting in my contacts. Makes me feel undressed, like I’m in pyjamas.

Last time I wore jeans was maybe just under a year ago. I can't do jeans no more. I absolutely love sweat pants. I get they ain't really the cleanest look piece of clothing one can wear, but I'm always oh so comfortable. Not like I'm dressing to impress. And whenever I do go out to the clubs or a nice dinner or something, I'll wear some dress pants or chinos or something.

This isn't to say that jeans aren't comfortable, because I do remember me being pleasantly surprised by how comfy my newly bought jeans were last year. But the other options are just even more comfortable.

(Though I will admit if I didn't have a work uniform, I'd probably be a little more fond of jeans)

I used to sleep in jeans before I met my wife. She made me stop.

So disappointed by the lack of references to Puddy from Seinfeld in this thread.

Personally I am fat and have endometriosis anything even a tight band without a zipper hurts me. I alter a lot of clothes lol

u/mahboilucas 12d ago

I always buy jeans that fit. Not the ones that make me look a size smaller. Maybe that's the difference

u/loseitthrowaway7797 12d ago

Skintight jeans probably

u/rugbyj 12d ago

Yeah they're stretchy, it's like wearing hardwearing leggings. Way more comfortable than the cardboard boot cut stuff.

Am I missing something? I've flown to Asia, then back to The West many times knowing it just takes time to get there. You know there's an entire brain in your head that can amuse you for those hours, right? I'm confused, old, and not relating. Please explain what I'm missing.

u/Sixstringsickness 12d ago

I think much of the younger generation generally isn't used to being bored AF with absolutely no entertainment on a trip.

I was born in the 80s, so I generally at least had a walkman or something. But I know my grandparents didn't take anything to travel, maybe a book at most, my parents would probably do the same!

Yeah, getting good excuse to meditate for an entire flight I'm not sharing with family is a dream for me.

I still put on headphones though, otherwise your open eyes freak people out.

I do this. I once had a 30 hour bus ride and only after 20 hours did I finally listen to music and drank a carton of milk as a meal. Sometimes just looking out of the window and snoozing a bit is enough.

I was like that on my last international flight. What you didn't see was the 4 xanax footballs in my pocket. Slept like a puddle of jelly

Slept, consciously awake, or raw dogging it? I dont get how this was you on your last international flight.

Sounds like Putty from Seinfeld. That guy just started into space like a champ.

But you need Elaine and Vegetable Lasagna for the trifecta.

u/anumati 12d ago

Pfft. I flew from JFK to Wellington, NZ with pretty much the same setup. I did have a book but I finished it before I landed at LAX ( flights were: JFK > LAX > AUK > WEL)

Anyone born before internet on cell phones knows how to just kinda shut their brain off for indefinite periods. Why do you think GenX never complains about anything?

Its actually quite nice to sit there and relax. 10 hours is a good time to just be alone with your thoughts.

Boredom is for some just a time to evolve mentally.

u/Ill-Lingonberry9296 12d ago

I fly often. Joggers, earphones, book, coffee (with lid) but no neck pillow. Hoodie because I hat the thought of my bare head on the plane seat back. The plain seat back?

u/Dunkaroos4breakfast 12d ago

Neck pillow feels like a pillow is just hitching a ride. You work for me you son of a bitch!

u/LittleBigHorn22 12d ago

I like jeans, but noise canceling headphones are a game changer. Can barely hear the planes jets and can sleep through anything. Head pillow helps to keep from getting kinks in the neck.
