It's an entirely different kind of in-flight movie, altogether...

/Airplane! was only shown as the in-flight movie on only one airline. What airline was it?

I know that airlines can't exactly control what's available on in-flight television when it's simply a satellite feed of basic cable, but a coworker and I watched a Mayday marathon on a flight from Toronto to Vancouver once, including two episodes featuring the type of aircraft we were on. That was fun.

MMM, some hot flight-on-flight action.
 
2013-07-30 12:34:32 AM
At least they're not showing Alive or Final Destination.

"Excessively violent or culturally insensitive movies are generally avoided too," a spokesman said.

Then why was I shown 300 on my last flight? Excessively violent AND culturally insensitive.

In February a United Airlines flight in the US was forced to divert after a family objected to the film Alex Cross being shown on the communal screens.

WTF?

Are the planes navigation and propulsion systems somehow reliant on the video projector being operational?

They showed Burt Wonderstone on our flights to and from Jamaica last week. Somehow neither of us had ever heard of it despite some big names in the cast. Didnt plug my headphones in, looked ok but cliched and predictable.

It's okay, it's showing on Qantas. They're the only airline that's never crashed.

/unfortunately, they don't fly to Los Angeles out of Cincinnati

One of the times I flew Westjet from Calgary to Vancouver the only channel working was Discovery, it was playing Mayday - not many people had their tv sets on.

I watched that on the 15th on the way back from vacation - it was pretty disappointing.

I once had to watch "The Terminal" on a Delta flight to Amsterdam. I was not amused.
 
2013-07-30 01:02:48 AM
Meh - why not?  I heard it's a good movie and I haven't seen it yet.  Seriously, if you're scared of flying, you probably will opt not to watch it.  I'm sure it beats George of the Jungle which is the last movie I saw on a flight.

This is an easy bet. How many people bought a drink everytime the word "drunk, alcohol, or bottle" was bringing up.

I doubt it, but technically it's possible. It's in the code. And robots.

Yo dawg, we heard you like flights, so we're showing Flight during you flight, so you can watch Flight during your flight.

The captain comes onto the intercom to reassure the passengers: "Don't worry folks, Flight is a completely fictional movie. In fact, I your captain do meth and not cocaine with the liquor bottles I drink onboard and there will be no people nearby us on the ground getting baptised when I crash this biatch!"

I work a job that has excessive travel rates.  I was flying across the Atlantic a few years back, and this was the in-flight movie.

As an unmarried, high-mileage flier, it was horribly depressing.

One of my flights in the late '90s was showing  The Edge, in which a backwoods Alaska float plane crashes into a lake after hitting a flock of geese, presumably because Sully wasn't the pilot.

In February a United Airlines flight in the US was forced to divert after a young family objected to the film Alex Cross being shown on the communal screens. The family complained that the film was "violent" and "sexually explicit" and they could not shield their children, aged four and eight, from the content.

Srsly America - WTF? Have you completely lost your sense of proportion?

Flight was a great film about how to drink and do drugs. That last scene in the hotel, that's how you do it. I imagine that's what Fark parties are like.

A few years ago?  I thought Flight came out last year.

At any rate, I've had jobs that required me to fly frequently.  Most of the flights didn't have movies.  I think I've only been on 2 flights that had them.  I saw George of the Jungle on one and Men in Black on another.  If I don't have a good book to read, I try to immerse myself in a crossword puzzle.

One time I was on a flight and didn't have a pen so I asked the person across the aisle from me if I could borrow his.  He handed me a fairly nice pen - not one of the throwaway disposables that most people use and when he realized I was planning on hanging onto it for the whole flight while I did the crossword he pulled out a cheap one and kindly asked me if I would use that instead.

/boring story, bro.
//I was't planning on stealing his nice pen, but I guess I can understand how he felt.
///I made sure he got his cheap plastic pen back too.
////hopes to have a nice pen someday

The first half and last hour of Flight is only worth watching. The one hour in between is just Denzel drunk. The beginning half is deceptive as you think it's going to be one of those buckle it's going to be a bumpy ride movies. Was bored out of my mind after the first half.

Also John Goodman for the win.
