Do you prefer a day flight or an overnight flight and why? Just wondering...

Night all the way...so beautiful, no lights in the cabin...no crying children. I love flying at night.

Me too. Everything is so calm. I also prefer doing my flight training at night. That way the sun isnt in your face the whole time when your concentrating on doing manuvers.

I like the red-eye flights. It allows me to do more stuff when I arrive at my destination. Also, I love going to airports in the middle of the night. It's like a different mood in the air at that time that I can't explain.

Brains - no crying children? You probably weren't on the POP-MXP red eye on Sunday ... murder was nearly commited... I was in cattle class because the Rep messed up, I can never sleep sitting up and there's a kid 2 rows in front going mental as soon as the doors closed ...

Give me an evening flight with clear skies and a window seat ... in business class! Flying over London on approach to Heathrow is a truly spiritual experience!

Ah, the night flights - most of the crew asleep or gossiping in the galleys, no food or drink unless you go walkabout and look for it (even in J Class, thanks a lot NZ), a quick peep at the airmap to find that you are in mid-Pacific with 7 hours to go before sunrise, turbulence just starting, and likely to continue for 5 hours, and you've watched all the decent movies. Then the infants start crying, the insomniacs start doing their exercises in the aisles. It stays that way until the sun rises (if the people in the window seats remember to raise the blinds so you can see it, and you realise that your body may be about to start the descent, but your libido is half a world away in a totally different timezone.
Give me daytime flights, thanks, with the occasional evening where you can get some nice wine and a lazy meal before arrival!
