Flying is great – and, as accessible as it may be for many, it is still restrictive for others, so it should be treasured as a great experience. But a short flight is completely different than a long hole one .
Yes, there are many activities – depending on the airline: movies, music. You can use your laptop or smartphone for that too. You can read (a book or an e-book). You can read magazines. You can admire the view. But 8-10 hours pass slowly and, if you had a flight with a connection, then you must be tired.
Actually, even if you take a short flight after a day at work or early in the morning, in order to get to work (business travelers know what I am talking about), taking an one hour nap could be helpful.
