    Just got back from Papua New Guinea.
    Night flight left Brisbane at 10:55 pm, 30 minutes later people start tucking into a meal. 4 hours later they are tucking in again!
    Who are these people?

    No, I was involved with a well-received rally of a fast-growing church in Bougainville.

    It is recommended to eat something every three hours.

    Also there is not much else to do on a plane. Yes there may be TV and gadgets, but you are stuck in one place. Same with car journeys or train journeys.

    I just thought most people would prefer to sleep, the Singapore - London leg was daytime so I did eat and watched "Demolition" and "Batman v Superman" + I went to ask for a snack and found 2 crew members canoodling behind the curtain which they took very well .. Singapore Airlines.
