A trip I took to Edinburgh 9 months ago, the flights from Boston to London and London and Boston the movies were My Favorite Martian and Entrapment, respectively. I watched neither! I listened to my Discman on the way over, and read the Richard Branson book, and talked to my seat neighbour on the way home. And my last trip to London I Litened to my Discman, and relaxed. On the way home I watched maybe 2-30 min of a movie, then a fell asleep. And 2 years ago, I was on an AA 757 for a 4 1/2 hour SJU-ORD flight, and I never even put my headphones on. Semi-related was a Lufthansa 747 from BOS-FRA, The Avengers was the movie, and even though I wasn't thrilled to watch it, it turned out I couldn as I was in front of the main screen, and the tiny LCD screen I has was terrible. I couldn't even see the screen, all I could see was white. I no longer even see the point of watching movies in flight, when there is so much else to do.
