I found myself on the verge of tears watching the in-flight movie today. Was kind of embarassing! Ever happen to you?

I was on an Ansett flight to Cairns that was showing 'Meet Joe Black'. As Joe was hit by a car there was a loud 's#*t' from most of the passengers.

A F/A raced out of the galley to see what had happened expecting everyone to be looking at something on fire outside the aircraft, instead everyone was glued to the screen with some passengers crying.

She asked me what had happened, as it was the second sector on which she'd had this happen.

One on of my recent flights from IAH-LGW, I brought along a DVD of Billy Connolly (Scottish Comedian), and was literally laughing my head off. After about 20 min, I had to turn it off because my face hurt, my stomach hurt and I was struggling for breath. The man is halarious

Oh my gosh, it's so funny to walk through the cabin and see lots of people crying for what appears to be no reason! I think it's odd that airlines do often play sad movies... what sort of impression do customers leave the plane with?

At least they get a good cry out of it. Some feel better after crying...

I remember the summer of 2000, UA had two Kevin Costner movies on during the same month. I had many business men jokingly tell me that they were going to cry if we played another Costner movie! ha!

The debate continues... Starwood or Hyatt... which is better

yes this happened to me as well . . . but I was just a mere 6 years old.

I was flying with my family from Bangkok to Perth on a Thai DC-10, and it was the movie Cocoon that brought me to tears. Sure as hell cant remember why.
oh and I also threw up on that flight, obviously I wasnt in such a good state.

I thought airlines would rather have comedies playing rather sad movies. Keep customers happy.

WWell, I almost cried when AA showed "Autumn in New York" -- but it wasn't because Winona Ryder died. It was because the movie was so horrible.

There is a first time for everything:

On a DL flight across the pond in June I watched "Far from Heaven", starring Dennis Quaid and Julianne Moore. I shed more than just a few tears, as the movie sadly reminded me of an American friend in a quite similar situation.

Watching that perfect suburbian setting - the immaculate facade, and the pain and desparation underneath the shiny surface really made my eyes water.

Happy flying to all of us

Wasn't any crying on this one but I thought it was funny. It was an Air India flight out of DEL. Some Bollywood film was showing and when the dancing and singing started, you could see everyone in the cabin swinging their arms about in unison like some choreographed act. Did I mention some passengers sang along? The flight attendant told me it was a common sight. It was hilarious!

Right you are,
Gordonsmall!

Real men don't cry!
Real men don't watch movies anyway.
As
real men go out and fell trees.
real men go out and build log cabins for their family.

Sorry for the rather short message, but I am in a hurry. I need to go out and hunt. My family is getting really hungry.

Aviaction, chill out.

It was just a bit of light hearted humour, I appreciate that things are slightly more "clinical" where you come from but doesn't give you en excuse to get into a hissy fit and start personally criticising me.

If you can't stand the heat .........

Gordon.

Sorry,
Gordonsmall
It was my sense of humour ... I apologize if it appeared rude and as a personal criticism. That was definitely not my intention. And yes, I did notice the smily at the end of your message. So, don't get mad.

Cheers,
Aviaction

PS: Oh, I for sure can stand the heat. You should see the big fire I have just made to roast the wild animals I caught a bit earlier.

Aviaction,

No apology needed really, I appreciate that you didn't mean any harm I was just getting a bit defensive as I tend to do.

And I must admit that being a Scotsman my humour can sometimes appear a bit dry and subtle (or not so subtle in some cases).

Regards,
Gordon.

Hmmm.
