Man praises ‘genius’ passenger’s trick to getting through long haul flights | The Sun

PASSENGER shaming has become a common occurrence on social media over the last few years, so it makes a refreshing change to see a new type of travel photo – passenger praising.

One traveller has been lauded online for his unique way of passing the time on a long-haul flight to Thailand – by bringing along his Xbox.

In a post on Reddit, a man shared a picture showing how the occupant of the neighbouring seat had brought his gaming console along for the journey.

The image shows the man with his phone propped up on his tray table, while grasping a controller in his hands.

Captioning the picture, the poster wrote: “My seat neighbour on the plane brought an Xbox to play during the 12-hour flight to Bangkok.”

Those in the forum praised the passenger’s “genius” idea to stay entertained with a game on board.

One branded him a “legend” while another called it a “sick setup”.

A third joked: “This is the kind of mobile gaming I can get behind.”

And a fourth added: “As a middle aged man who wants to game but often find he doesn’t have the time, I respect the hell out of this move!”

The man would have experienced and even more enjoyable flight if he'd learnt about this iPhone trick ahead of the journey.
