Sometimes, flying too much can be boring. What bores you? What do you find so monotonous you just hate it?
I get bored with the usual bla bla bla safety procedure video or demonstrations. So damn boring!!!!!!!!!!
Also I hate the usual "chicken or pasta" choice on board and the so usual eggs for breakfast. Also I get bored with the usual very repetitive crew behavior and most of all: movies that you already saw (on planes with no PTV´s). There´s then nothing else to do. So boring when that happens. But still, I enjoy every flight!

Hi Checo77,

yeah, some things can be really boring if you fly too much! But I love to look outside, because it always looks different out there... So, take a camera and take a lot of pictures of great clouds or landscapes...

Or read a book  Wink/being sarcastic or talk to the people next to you  Wink/being sarcastic

What do the longer haul pilots do? My dad said that his friend (744 captain) reads books, plans holidays, another guy I know says he sleeps all flight long,
what ecactly do I have install for me in my hopeful future career?  Big grin

Yep, the usual safety briefings at the beginning of the flight is boring--important but boring. Taxiing: I HATE taxiing. I also don't like flying at night when I can't see anything. I generally get board when flying longer than 2.5hrs. I get real board when I'm stuck in a non-window seat, especially when I'm right behind the wall!!!!

I know (remotely) a 742F captain who likes to fly a cesna with a MS Flight Simulator on his laptop while he's on command of his 747 - he said to me that he loves to fly! Well, hell yeah - flying two a/c's at the same time!  Big thumbs up

Though this might also be a statement that flying an airliner is sometimes boring job  Big grin

One Q,if the pilots aren't supposed to open the door in flight,do they go to the lavatory?

not working personal IFEs is definitly a boring thing, if the guy across the aisle has all you want to look at, but cant see.

another thing i am bored of is the new miles and more program of LH. no mercy for the cattle class. i did 40 flights this year and got my frequent flyer stat some weeks ago. but for no good reason. i will now fly the cheapest and not the alliance preferably.

I normally read while on long-haul flights, watch the movies, listen to music, etc. I find it quite easy to pass the time.

What I'm not keen on is flying when I'm very tired. In fact, last Tuesday I fell asleep on 2 of 4 flights - even though the longest flight duration was just 55 minutes!

i hate waiting forever for my bags to come out at baggage claim. Also, i hate those safety videos....as much as i fly, i think i know what do do in case of an emergency....i also hate it when they replay the whole thing in spanish(no offense to all you spanish speaking people), but i really dont think they need to play it in spanish on a flight like BWI-MSP! lastly, i dont like it when there is an almost empty flight and a person has to sit right next to me when there is a whole empty plane to sit anywhere else.. those are a few things i dont like!  Smile
