There’s no doubt that traveling on an airplane is an excellent way to get anywhere in the world quickly. However, once you’ve checked in and boarded your plane, you soon realize that you have a significant amount of time before you arrive at your destination. Luckily, there are a lot of ways one can entertain and occupy themselves on the phone while flying. 

If there is one thing that can be said with certainty it’s that long were the days when you soar off into the air and you had to be disconnected from the outside world for a day. Today, tons of modern airplanes have in-flight satellite Wi-Fi one can connect their phone to and entertain themselves until they reach their destination. 

Generally, the quickest way to pass time on the flight is by sleeping through it. However, you’d be surprised to know that this is not possible for a lot of people. There are a lot of reasons why you can not sleep on the plane, some of the main ones being:

  1. You boarded unequipped
  2. You don’t make yourself comfortable
  3. You drink coffee

Despite giving their best, some people still can not manage to fall asleep on the plane which is why they need to be entertained to keep their sanity. Before your flight, it’s mandatory to charge your mobile as well as your earbuds to their full capacity as you will need them to go throughout the whole flight. 

At last, the in-flight Wi-Fi industry is expected to grow significantly in the years to come. Although the current WiFi on airplanes isn’t that great, they are planning to invest more in upgrading their equipment. At the moment, the quality and price of your in-flight WiFi highly depend on the airline.

Entertain Yourself By Playing Online Casino Games

Yes, it is possible to play casino games at mobile online casinos in the US, while in the air. Granted you may have to be more patient due to the not-so-great internet connection, but it is possible indeed. You know how they say where there is a will there’s a way. 

Nonetheless, you need to be prepared for unexpected issues such as that you can get blocked if your IP is foreign. A great solution for this is to use a VPN as it will mask your internet protocol number and in that way, you will be able to play some of your favorite casino games or even place a bet on a fight or two. 

Organize Your Photo Gallery and Take Picture While You At It

One of the biggest advantages of owning a mobile phone is having a camera to take pictures with. And, it’s fair to say that we take lots of pictures so our gallery gets filled with several similar photos that we forgot to delete and make room for more. With that being said, one of many ways you can spend your free time while traveling on an airplane is by organizing your photo gallery and reminiscing about the past. 

Additionally, if you get lucky enough and get a window seat make sure you take a photo, especially if it is your first plane journey. This is a tradition that many people forget to do as they become more used to traveling on an airplane. 

The truth of the matter is, that some of the best views in the world come from a bird’s-eye perspective, hence why planes are the best place to get that perfect Instagram story shot. Once you get the perfect picture you can spend a little time afterward editing it to your liking and, depending on how big of a perfectionist you are,  you will arrive at your destination in no time.

Watch a Movie or Three 

By far, the most popular activity people do in planes, besides sleep, is watch a movie, or three. If you are on a long-haul flight, you always have an option to binge-watch a series of Marvel movies, enjoy watching the fourth season of the Netflix series “Stranger Things” or rewatch your favorite movie you haven’t watched in a hot minute. Fortunately, it’s very easy to download movies to watch later on a plane.

While you will most likely have personal entertainment screens in front of you on the plane, it’s best to bring along your laptop, tablet, or phone, just in case. At last, airplanes are not known to have an updated list of movies and series, and god forbid you to miss out on a new episode of your favorite ones. You know how they say, it’s better to be safe than sound.
