10 REASONS TO TRAVEL BY PLANE

 

No matter how many times you travel by plane, it still feels glamourous. And what better way to make new friends than being next to someone for hours, with only an arm rest to fight over? So buckle up and enjoy the cabin crew making you feel like you should have had a makeover before you boarded – how do they look so good this early?!?

1. ONE WORD. TOBLERONE.

2. OOH LOOK AT THAT...

Duty Free – the place where you want to buy all the stuff your know you don’t need at a price which isn’t free! The bright lights and shiny packages hypnotise you - so you don’t realise that bottle of booze is actually more expensive than your local supermarket, or that you have enough perfume,  or that you never actually liked tins of shortbread!  

3. PUSH BACK AND RELAX 

It is your space, with your own light, your own air thingy and even your own buzzer – should you need assistance with being even more comfortable! Want to recline? Go ahead - it’s your holiday. 

4. OFF YOUR TROLLEY? 

Would I like a drink or something to eat? Let me see… are you going to get it out of the seemingly never ending drawers in your trolley? You are! Then yes I would. How do they fit so much into one trolley?!? It’s like the TARDIS!  

5. FEEL THE FORCE 

Unless you are a Formula 1 driver you’ll never experience the amazing acceleration you do when you take off. If you are a Formula 1 driver, stop showing off!

6. LET ME ENETRTAIN YOU 

With plenty of me-time to fill, what better way than enjoying your music of watching a film. Or even better watching someone else’s film, with no volume, over their shoulder!

7. SPEED... I AM SPEED

Let’s look at the maths of holidays; ‘Time away from home’ take away ‘travel time’ equals ‘The Fun Times’. Given your travel time in a plane is much shorter than a car or train, you get more Fun Times and your holiday is actually longer! 

8. ARE WE THERE YET? 

You get on a plane and when you stop you are at your destination. No panic about missing your stop, or driving on the wrong side of the road – you’re just there!

9. YOU ARE ACTUALLY FLYING! 

At over 30,000 ft - that’s over 6 miles up! What is not to like? It’s like being Superman, but with less pants on show.

10. HELLO DOWN THERE! 

Look at all the little houses, and the little roads and the tiny cars! The view out of the window of a plane makes the land below look like the most delicate model ever made!
