DRINKS on a plane!

    so much for smoking in the vegas airport it was banned in december leaving salt lake as the only one i know of.
  2. If i'm flying alone (which happens a lot), i tend to drink (usually 2-3 gin and tonics depending on the duration of the flight). It might sound bad, but i honestly enjoy drinking alone on planes--gives me time to think, etc. If i'm flying for personal reasons and i'm with my wife, I usually spend the time talking to her and usually don't drink at all.

    If you don't fly a lot and are nervous about it, i would say that you should try to get over your fear without the help of alcohol. The best way to overcome a fear of flying is to just get it over with and realize everything you feel up there is normal. my 2 cents...

    Oh, I wasn't trying to overcome my fear of flying with alcohol, I was just curious as to what it is like to drink on a plane. For no apparent reason I have not been afraid of flying my last two trips. Yesterday went smoothly. I think it is just realizing you have no control anyway, so you might as well sit back and relax.
    I did have a couple of beers on the flight from Vegas to Seattle and it was the weirdest thing, because I felt pretty drunk from only 2 beers while we were in the air and when we landed I felt fine. Must have been the altitude.
    Plus, my stewardess rocked, because she bought the first round.

    I don't drink on planes because it heightens my desire to smoke.

    Good point. I became mildly crazy when everyone was taking their sweet ass time to get off the plane and I knew a cigarrette was so close.
