Long distance air travel is a mixed bag experience. As much as it confuses the body clock and tires the muscles, it also brings along a few unique thrills, memorable experiences and new ideas

  • An empty next seat :D
  • Free upgrades :O (Those booked in first class have no such hope, sorry guys ;)
  • A peep into the cockpit!
  • Movie marathons
  • Reading international newspapers (One is for international news, another is for international perspective on Indian news)
  • Counting the # of languages the crew in Emirates can collectively speak(Usually 15-18, this time it was 21!)
  • Looking out for UFO sightings :#

And at times funny things like this condolence message in Khaleej Times dated 27th Jan 2014!
