What Are You Bored Of?

Tue Nov 09, 2004 12:19 pm

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...

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

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 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
