    Definitely guilty of shedding a few tears onboard a plane… but I think scary movies may be even more of a concern…
    I was once transiting in Dubai and boarded Emirates for the second leg. Happily, the IFE content worked while the plane was still on the tarmac, so I was able to get stuck back in to the thriller I had been watching…
    Unfortunately, I was caught out by a particularly jumpy scene and let out a not-so-subtle scream… this was compounded by the fact that there was no engine drone to muffle my noise, as we were still on the ground…
    About three rows of alarmed people swung round to look at red-faced me… While most of them saw the funny side (once they’d realised there was no reason for actual alarm), a few gave me dirty looks and were probably quite unhappy to be seated near a madwoman for the next six hours…
    So the moral is, avoid any film that might provoke inappropriate emotional responses in the air!


    I have definitely noticed an increase in baggage arrival time at HKIA. My latest experience was last week, travelling on Hong Kong Airlines. I arrived at the carousel and was met with a “Bags delayed” sign yet again. It took 30 minutes for the bags to start arriving. It’s particularly frustrating because getting through immigration is super speedy at HKIA (for residents anyway), however this is completely pointless if you then have to wait around for baggage…
