Do you get drunker faster on a Plane?

Not that you intend on getting drunk or acting unruly on a plane but many people wonder if they get drunker quicker on an aircraft.

Alcohol and Flying: An unlikely relationship

The famous Mythbusters teams tackled this very issue and the result was a resounding no. So why do people think that they get drunk faster on an aircraft?

There could be numerous reasons for this and some of them are more likely than others.

  1. People drink more in a short space of time on the plane

On most long haul flights alcohol is free. Free alcohol means more drinking for most and this means that people are consuming alcohol on the plane more than they would normally do. This leads to the false misconception that they are in fact getting drunk quicker than they would on dry land. In fact, in my many travels I have seen people on a long haul flight wake up for breakfast and ask the flight attendant for an alcoholic beverage. Most of the time, they have been denied.

2. The Cabin Pressure

Even without drinking any alcohol it is possible to feel slightly lightheaded. This is often mistaken for feeling drunk. So while the alcohol may not get your drunk quicker, the alcohol along with the general light headedness from the cabin pressure can give you that feeling.

3. Don’t Forget

It is not a good idea to consume too much alcohol on the plane. Alcohol dehydrates and one of the best ways of beating Jet Lag is actually staying very hydrated. More than that if you do become unruly on a flight and get out-of-hand because of your drunken state you could face hefty penalties upon arrival at your destination.

ElJet Scoops Another Award

ElJet has become renowned as North Ameirca’s best private jet charter. This is because they have won the award consistently from the World Travel Association. This time ElJet’s Private Jet Charter Blog, has chimed in and scooped an award of their own.

ElJet Private Aviation Blog Wins Award

ElJet’s Private Aviation Blog has been voted as one of the top 60 pilot blogs on the planet. The blog was voted as the 17th best blog out there for pilots and airline enthusiasts. The selection was made using the Feed Spot criteria.

ElJet’s Private Aviation Blog is more than just a place to find out what is new and what’s best on the private jet charter scene. There is plenty of fun flying facts and information. Including some of the most historic flight personnel and the machines a.ka. airplanes that carried them.

The blog contains many travel tips, including first hand information on the do’s and don’ts of travelling with kids or how and where to find the best airline food.

Avid readers of ElJet’s private aviation blog keep coming back every week for the interesting reads on some of flying’s most pressing (and most googled questions). Like, how much does a flight attendant earn? And who is the youngest pilot to have ever flown passengers for a commercial airline?

And it goes without saying that the blog will always give you great tourist and travel info on the destinations that are serviced with great distinction by ElJet. There is of course lots of great information that has also been shed on the blog on the pioneering Empty Leg options that ElJet provides for passengers.

This award bestowed on the blog is only a further affirmation of the all-round excellence that ElJet has shown all-round on a consistent basis in the Private Jet Charter field.



The Funniest Plane in the Sky

The Funniest plane in the sky has to belong to South Africa’s low cost flight company known as Kulula. Kulula are pro’s in the business of funny flying but their Flying 101 plane is a step above as you are about to discover.

The entire plane is wrapped in funny information that tells you all about the plane and the people inside the plane.

There are arrows that point out the captain, co-captain and other essential elements of the plane.

While Kulula only flys locals South African routes, they proudly say that thanks to going viral on the internet, their Flying 1o1 Kulula jet has made it’s way around the world many times.

They even point out for all who can see the plane where the black box is located and then in their way that gives them the title of funniest plane in the sky point out that the black box is actually orange.

Kulula is known for some genius marketing gimmicks. They have also upset the local South African Carrier known as South African Airways. This is when they released a plane and an ad campaign that touted Kulula as “The Most South African Airways”.

While many in-flight service co-ordinators have taken to finding humorous ways to give over the safety demonstrations and information, Kulula were somewhat of pioneers in that area. In addition to this they have become famous for full page ads that are clever and witty and of course their April Fools Pranks.

As an airline Kulula obviously has to put up with a fair few complaints but it always lightens the burden with some humor. There is something about humor and laughs that make commercial flying, especially low-cost commercial flying, that much more palatable.
