I will be flying to Arizona on Tuesday and plan to purchase some new magazines and bring with a word search book. What do you do to entertain yourself on a flight? Or do you sleep while you are flying through the air?

Yes, I bring entertainment. She is small with curly brown hair and big brown eyes. She just turned two years old this month. Actually I think I have it backward. I am her entertainment! I spend the whole flight trying to keep her busy so she doesn't disturb any of the other passengers. She has been on around 20-25 planes since she was born. She only cried on one in all that time. I don't think she was feeling good. I also made sure I scheduled flights around her natural sleep schedule. Flying late at night was the only time she would get upset. So I stayed away from late flights.

I will be bringing entertainment too! See the little curly haired girl in my profile photo? LOL! She's only flown once, ok well twice before, but the first time she was all of several thousand cells (I was barely pregnant, like literally 2 or 3 days) and the second time she was an infant. She's four and a half now and very very inquisitive. I bet she will be asking questions the entire flight.

I have never been able to sleep while flying. Each time I shut my eyes the plane jerks and makes me open my eyes. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I usually bring a book or magazine. I generally content my self with the inflight magazine and the on board entertainment, I'm not very fussy when it comes to entertainment. I can entertain myself pretty easily.

Yes, I do bring something for me to get entertained. Since the topic is pertaining to travel via air, I would bring along a good book that I can read and my music player as well. I don't really sleep while traveling, as long as it is just a short distance travel. May it be through air, land or sea..

I usually bring a good book. But it depends on the time of day and the length of the flight. If it is late or early then I might try to get in some sleep. It's hard though because I usually can't find a comfortable position, lol.

I always bring a new book, I don't even start it until the plane takes off. Granted, sometimes I sleep for the entire flight. LOL

Good evening, dear jillhill. When I travel on a plane, the very thing I love to bring with me for entertainment is my tiny digital camera because I love to take photos of the beautiful blue sky high up above the earth. I always try to take as many photos as I can. hehe.

Firstly enjoy your flight and have a wonderful time. I always take a book but if I am sat next to somebody interesting will have conversation during most of the flight and read the book before I go to bed where ever I am staying. Even when I flew from UK to LA I didn't sleep, chatted, read a while, ate. Ellie :D

When I went to Europe I sat next to a cancer doctor from the chec republic.....and across from me the attendent who was from Paris! What a wonderful trip to visit with those two gals....this flight is shorter though....with a little lay over in Denver....so reading should take up my time.

i haven't flew for more than an hour but what i usually do when i'm on the plane is sleep or if i'm not sleepy, i'd be watching the sky or read a magazine. if its gonna be a long flight, i think i would sleep through it. i like sleeping when i'm in a long travel.

Although I don't fly anywheres I always take things with me when I travel...even it's just around town. I can't stand to sit still for long and it helps if I have something to keep me occupied. Anything from magazines to a notepad to write down MyLot ideas. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~
