While you may think people work on a plane, the reality is just 10% of people do. Topping the list is reading for pleasure (32%), reading business publications is next and then watching movies.
But here are three good reasons to get some things done –
1. You are physically tied down to your seat and it’s usually too uncomfortable to sleep
2. No phone calls or co-workers interrupting you
3. The movies available are usually very average (airline dependent)
And here are some ideas on what to do –
Sort out and file all the information floating around in random locations on your laptop
Clean out your email… Enough said!
Download Podcasts on topics you have been meaning to catch up on for ages, but never seem to get the time to do so
Catch up on the news – set up your RSS feeds and clip the pages to read on the plane. Or read that book you have been meaning to for ages – old school hard copy style, or on your kindle.
And don’t feel guilty for keeping to yourself on flight, only 2% of people actually engage other passengers in conversations.
