There’s still debate on whether flights are an enjoyable experience or not, but there’s one thing most travelers will agree on: in-flight internet connection is a must. While having Wi-FI onboard is becoming a norm these days, it’s still a work in progress, as it remains to be unreliable. Beat boredom and plan wisely for your next long-haul flight:
Listen and learn from podcasts
If listening new content is more up your alley than watching a series, then podcasts are a great way to stay informed and entertained.There are many genres to choose from, so you’re bound to find something that will suit your personality or preference: whether it’s your favorite celebrity giving a peek into her daily life; a breakdown of that upcoming video game; tips on how to start a small business; and even true-crime stories that will take you to the heart of the crime.
Pre-download your movies or series
You’ll never run out of options with the amount of streaming platforms available nowadays. There’s the classic Netflix, with its Hollywood flicks and Original series; iFlix with its regional content and first run exclusives; Viu and its chest of K-dramas; and iTunes, which allows you to rent content for 24 hours for a good price. Just make sure your device has enough storage to keep your pre-downloaded content!
Catch up on your reading
The Pocket app and browser extension helps you save content for offline viewing, meaning you can catch up on online content while on the go. Whether it’s long form pieces from your favorite travel blogs or tell-all features on that intriguing personality, you can read it all in one place. Pocket also saves videos and photos, so you don’t miss out on the full online reading experience. Prefer literature instead? Purchase an ebook or two at Amazon, iBooks or Google Play.
Pay premium for your music
Music-streaming platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal offers offline streaming for those willing to pay premium. Set up a playlist for your flight or line up this year’s hits and new releases to accompany you in-flight.
