As we all know, some flights can be long and burdensome, and it can, as such, get rather boring to sit in the same spot doing nothing after you’ve watched all the movies you wanted. There are a whole lot of alternatives to just sitting around waiting for the flight to end.
These include reading a book, working or studying, journaling about the trip that you’ve just had or are about to take, sketching, and the list goes on. This lady chose to do cross-stitching as her airplane activity. We are actually not so sure how she managed to get her needles past security, but good for her!
Knitting to Kill Time
It's smart to bring some activities on a plane to keep you busy for the duration of the flight. When you are on a long-haul flight, there are only so many movies you can watch before your eyes start burning from staring at the screen for so long. There are many alternatives to watching movies on a flight, provided you plan ahead and bring them along.
That could include crossword puzzles, music, and, for some, even knitting. As surprising as it may come across to some, R. Lee Ermey chose to bring his knitting with him on long flights. R. Lee Ermey was a talented actor mostly known for his roles in military movies, but it seems he had other interests, too.
Ramsay Ruling The Plane
We had no idea that Gordon Ramsey has a side hustle attending passengers on a plane, along with his multimillionaire culinary gig. To be fair, it's no surprise, really, since both of these industries are related in that they both essentially serve customers and strive to make them happy.
We just hope that Ramsey won't bring out his fiery side when serving passengers on a plane. Otherwise, the airline he is working for may receive a lot of complaints. Passengers may not be too thrilled when they hear something like "For what we are about to eat, may the Lord make us truly not vomit" or "Don't just stand there like a big f—ing muffin!"
If you are a music rock star or dream of becoming one, then perhaps you will understand what this person had to go through to transport her beloved instrument on this flight. Firstly, instruments are generally quite fragile and expensive, so of course, any instrument owner is going to want to take care to give them the utmost protection when traveling with them.
They are also most commonly weirdly shaped and, therefore, don't fit into the cabin luggage compartments that are typically made for bags and suitcases. At least, it seems like this person booked a whole seat just for her instrument, so no one is getting inconvenienced by it! You go, girl!
How to Read a Book
There are no harsh judgments here, and everybody is free to fill their time on a plane how they wish. Some folks may choose to read novels. Others may decide to use the time to get some work or studying done.
We have even seen some whacky cases of people choosing to cut their nails or pull some crazy yoga moves in their free time on a plane. Maybe you just like to keep it simple by watching movies or listening to music. Someone on this Redditor's flight chose to bring his book along that's going to teach him "How To Read a Book."
