Default Long airplane rides qq

Airplane rides suck. I'm of above average height, so there's hardly any legroom for me. Half of the time there's some screaming baby on the plane, but thankfully most parents try to shush them. The food is disgusting, and the movies are often sub-par.

Not the main problem, though. I just can't sleep again after I wake up, and often finally manage to go to sleep at home at around 2 AM (not late for some of you, but is for me). It's not a huge problem when the flight is like 2-4 hours long, but when its going to be 10.5 hours (this trip) or 13 hours (flight to China), airplane flights suck.

I can never sleep on a plane. Imagine a 13 hour sleepless uncomfortable plane ride.

I agree completely. I hate long plane rides too.

Worst 16 hours of my life.
And then there was the trip back.

Think about how beautiful this world is, how amazing it is, for mankind, to survive this long and to achieve such thing as flying in the sky like birds did for hundreds of thousands of years...And think about how tiny we really are, in this empty universe that's stretching limitlessly...

^ then you'll fall asleep lol

I've never been on a flight longer than 4 hours, so... I can't relate. Yet. I'm sure I'll hate it, too, if I have to stay in a cramped space for an entire day since my legs won't fit asdfgfd. >_>

I'm kind of used to it having annual flights from the USA to the Philippines, but I can relate to your pain. It sucks when you feel too lazy to stretch from being cramped there all the time. It's really bad to your knees.

Same with Kon, we visit my mom in the US every Christmas so I kinda got used to it (16-hour flight). If you want a comfortable position, ask for an aisle seat. It's a blessing every time you have to use the bathroom. Plus, you have a little more leg room~

Oh, and thanks to the irregular sleeping time in flights, I never once experienced jet-lag~

I hate flying in general. So uncomfortable. I'd rather drive to a place.

I went from NYC-->Tokyo on July 21st, 2007. That is also the day that Harry Potter 7 was released in the U.S, so the flight felt like an hour. @_@ Always bring stuff to occupy you. :<

Trains are also good. Trains and Cars are good. Planes are a no-no. >.>

But there aren't always lucky coincidences like a really good book be released the day (or day after) your flight. So sometimes the thing you bring to occupy you, really doesn't occupy you.
