So I'm heading out to Thailand tomorrow (well technically today, I can never sleep before flying) and I'm dreading the 15 hour journey.
So to counter the stress and boredom of those darn airplanes, I'll be taking approximately 200 hours of glorious Bombcast with me.
I think the numbers seem a bit off too, but I can't work out what it is!
 
But anyway, what do you do to prevent the dreaded restlessness of flight creeping in?

Read a book, watch a movie, play some games. Most important? Try to sleep.

get soar and uncomfortable because I'm too tall.

Read, watch movies, play DS/PSP (does funky stuff to your lights though), sleep. Be sure you get up and walk around as often as you can if possible, you'll feel like shit sitting for a long time.

The longest I've ever been on a plane was for one hour and 50 minutes....ish. I played spider solitaire on my phone and listened to the Bombcast the whole time. On my most recent flight, which lasted 50 minutes, I watched Fresh Prince of Bel Air on my iPod Touch. Love that show.

You should sneek into the restrooms after a hot girl goes into them and violently Masturbate to the thought of them taking a dump - but that's just my idea of fun.

My iPod.  I like to sleep on planes (no matter how cramped I may be) so listening having music in my ears makes me comfortable. 
#9 Posted by FireSketch (827 posts) -
@RoboRobb: I appreciate your advice. I will write it in my notepad.
@natetodamax: Yeah, the Fresh Prince is an incredible show. And lucky you! I don't think I've ever been on a flight less than an hour and a half. I'm guessing you live in America? 
@ArchScabby:  This is very helpful, thank you. I'll make sure I occupy myself with that.

All I really need is my DS, iPhone and a good book.
 
On my recent flight to Amsterdam I played the crap out of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and Dragon Quest IX.

#13 Posted by FireSketch (827 posts) -
@Fjordson: Chinatown Wars would be wonderful. I really need to get a DS. I will have a good book though. :)

sleep unless I'm window seat, can't beat that view.

#15 Posted by Stunt (187 posts) -

I usually try and sleep. If not, I'll whip out the laptop and play some games - usually small games like N Game. You know, the original 100 level game released as a free download.

@Liam_mk: @angelfan91:  I would love to be able to sleep on planes! It's only happened to me once, and that was an accident.

After explaining to NSA and the stewardess the difference between my Giant Bomb and a terrorist's giant bomb, I usually try to stay as quiet as possible.

@FireSketch:
Its comforting, but there's no worse place to wake up than a turbulant plane.
#19 Posted by Osaladin (2543 posts) -

Since it's impossible for me to sleep on a plane, I try and read a book or listen to music. I never bring my PSP, because I haven't touched it in so long and I don't really have any games for it, and because I get a little embarrassed as a grown man playing games in public. I know it's silly, but I have to keep up appearances.

#20 Posted by Berezov (504 posts) -

Last time I was on a plane we had a selection of films we could choose from, on the way there we had stuff like Get Smart, Incredible Hulk and on the way back we had Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skulls, if I remember correctly I did fall asleep whilst Crystal Skulls were on. I also remember around 10 years ago or so when I was flying with Virgin we had a SNES on the back of our seats, whilst everybody was asleep I was still playing Street Fighter II and almost completed Super Mario World. Funny how I can remember that but can't remember anything about the holiday itself.

@FireSketch:  Try screaming "I have a bomb!" repeatedly. 
 
P.S. Just make sure you add cast to the end of bomb or you could be in some serious trouble. Have fun!
#24 Posted by Lawrens (688 posts) -

Sleep, get up for food, drink wine, sleep, get up and eat, watch the films when I can't sleep anymore. That's the routine I always go with. I don't sleep before flight.

#25 Posted by Zella (827 posts) -

Longest flight I've been on was about 5 1/2 to 6 hours and I kept myself occupied with a book and my psp. I played P3P and MGS: Peace Walker, but most rpgs or adventure games work well.

#26 Posted by MKHavoc (1307 posts) -

I'll usually listen to my ipod or read a book.

#27 Posted by Akeldama (4257 posts) -

Masturbate furiously in the cockpit.

#28 Posted by Djeffers03 (2545 posts) -

Sleep, listen to my ipod and look out the window.

i usually buy some comics since my ds battery lasts like 45 minutes fully charged.

I try to sleep on the airplane but can't seem to force myself to sleep for more than 3-4 hours. I tend to wake up too soon and then looking at the clock makes me dread the 14 hour flight too. I hate flying so I just sit there and just wait until I get bored and then fall asleep for another 3-4 hours, then wake up and start the process again. 

#32 Posted by WhiteBrightKnight (166 posts) -

Bombcast! depending on which airplane you use normally you can watch movies, plus most blu-rays have a digital copy for your iphone.  Sleep, and talk to the person next to you if the aren't a complete slob.
#33 Posted by CastroCasper (1307 posts) -

I stay up all night the day before so I can sit down on the plane and wake up during landing.

Hit on the flight attendant nonstop

#43 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

I burst into the cockpit and share a few kegs with the pilot and copilot. Once we're drunk enough, I get everybody to take off their shirts, just so I can establish a "no shirts" rule for when the stewardess enters.

#44 Posted by AjayRaz (12477 posts) -

i listen to music for the entire flight 

#45 Edited by Aaox (1657 posts) -

In total I've spent roughly 480 hours on an airplane in my lifetime, and most of that time would've been spent either on a handheld game system (Persona 3 Portable was a godsend on the most recent one) or more recently, listening to music. I once spent an entire flight in a state of half-sleep listening to Caramell Dansen. Sadly, that's a true story. I can never sleep on airplanes, though, even this one time when I drank a can of Drank an hour before takeoff.

#47 Posted by jkz (4061 posts) -

I go on a lot of 10+ hour flights, and most of my time on those flights I spend reading and listening to music. Occasionally I'll play games on my PSP or watch movies, but it's mostly music and reading.

I did 70 SuDoku puzzles between Manchester Airport and Atlanta International.
