Just 11 Amazing Tweets About Traveling by Airplane
With the COVID-19 pandemic still going, many of us probably haven’t been traveling on airplanes as much as we used to. So we have an idea: Let’s reminisce on just how “great” (and yes, we’re saying “great” in quotes for a reason) being on an airplane can be so that we have something to look forward to when this is all over.
Okay, so we’re actually not missing all too much. Sure, we’d love to be traveling to a tropical paradise, but getting there can be kind of rough. And these tweets will remind you why. Even if you don’t plan to fly for a while, if nothing else, these are guaranteed to make you laugh!
You Always Feel Someone Looking at You

Like, For Real, Everyone’s Always Watching
My flight was delayed 3 hours so I was doing what any human does when they’re bored. Minding my own business swiping through tinder & the guy behind me goes “ouch hard no for that one?” And I turn around ONLY TO SEE THE MAN I JUST SWIPED NO ON BEHIND ME HAHAHA

Your Lunch May Never Come
The lady that sat beside me on this flight ate my lunch. Her reason “you were asleep and I didn’t want the food to get cold and go bad.” Her courage is amazing. I’m still in awe.

You Can Really Get Inside Others’ Heads
I saw a man on my flight pull his phone out seemingly apropos of nothing add 200+300 (it was 500) then just put his phone away

Or at least, silently judge people?
You May Share a Flight With Very Specific People
Someone on my plane just asked for Diet Pepsi and was crestfallen when they only had Diet Coke, so if I am serial killed tonight you all know who did it.

Or a Group of Very Loud Friends
There is a group of women getting on my flight and one has a shirt that says “just divorced” and the others have shirts that say “divorce support group” and they are all plastered. Those are the type of friends everyone needs in their life lmao

Your Co-Passengers May Have Interesting Taste In Technology
To the man on my flight yesterday, who watched what appeared to be an entire movie on a 7th generation iPod Nano, you are a national hero. pic.twitter.com/xWyjH9wEvW

Or a Very Smelly Sally
Someone on this plane had such strong perfume I was actually hoping for a mild disaster so the oxygen masks would drop

Or the Scary Snake Lady
The lady that brings snakes to school to show them just got on my plane. If a snake crawls out of her pocket I’m gonna go ape crap all over this flight.

Food Freedom is Forbidden
Bringing a tuna fish sub on this flight was a good idea. Everyone is looking at me like they should have thought of that.
