Hey, only wimps kill time on the airplane by reading books and working on laptops. Indulge in a game of AirTennis between you in 12D and your associate in 24C. Simply set up a net between 18C and 18D and play ball. You don't even have to get out of your seat with the special shortened 12" racket, which helps you get a good swing without hitting anyone across the aisle. Squishy Nu-Safe coating on standard-size tennis ball makes it safe for all passengers.

- For use only at gate and above 10,000 ft.

- Do not use during beverage cart service or when cockpit door is open.

-- Coming soon: AirBaseball and AirBowflex.

       definatley m8, no-one is sociable enough on planes, but about laptops being boring what about quake arena against others on plane on the screens on the headrests?

       Don't forget the splatt-ball "Capture the Flag" tournament after the in-flight movie, to get your legs stretched and the blood pumping.

       And if you have energy left after the flight, shoot some Bus-Top Snooker on the way to your hotel! I like it!

       I was hoping this would be a game where you divert an airplane to one airport, and they divert it back... if it makes it more than halfway back, before it runs out of fuel, you win, if not, you lose.
