Eleven Hours and Counting


Eleven Hours and Counting

I have discovered the only good thing for television. It does make the time go faster when you are on an 11 hour flight.

The mind numbing of Everybody Loves Raymond or Ocean’s Eleven lulls you into a sort of half coma. When you wake up, hours have passed. Sure you can read, but that takes some mental effort. The video is just "there."

The ability to select the movie or program you wish to watch (they do have National Geographic for those who want a bit of stimulation), is fantastic. The new 777 is actually almost comfortable back in steerage. However, they installed a box under the seat in front of you which holds all the electronics for the entertainment system. It also means you can’t put either your feet or your bag comfortably under the seat. They give with one hand, take away with the other.

No, I didn’t blog this from the plane, but its coming. I notice some flights now have Internet access and broadband. Won’t be long.
