Now we have screens in our chairs. Most or some, give us a pick of many movies. Now we have films like Turbulence, Snakes on a Plane and Cast Away. Those concern airplane disasters. One movie that mirrored our last adoption was Contagion. In the movie, an airborne illness is contracted in Hong Kong and spread through a plane.
Angie experienced this movie first hand. She was going through the titles and thought that this looked like an interesting movie. Remember, we had just boarded our plane to America from Hong Kong. She liked the movie. Later in the flight, people started acting weird. One person fainted. Another person started vomiting and people started to call for a doctor. Angie started to freak out a little. She had just seen a movie with this same plot.
She calmed down when she realized what was going on. On a long flight like this, you have to drink water. If not, you will get dehydrated. The air circulating dries you out. Stewards are constantly bringing around cups of water. So remember, drink lots of fluids on a long flight. If you watch a movie about disaster or illness, just tell yourself "It's just a movie". Who knows, you might learn survival skills or not.
