A flight attendant just got on the PA to ask us to lower our shades "for better viewing of the in-flight movie."
I'm not watching the crappy in-flight movie. I'm on an early west to east cost flight and depending on my iPod and the abundance of daylight (I got a window seat by choice) to help adjust my sleep schedule. I'd rather not be falling asleep tomorrow morning during the talk I'm giving. If this was a red-eye flight, that'd be one thing. But for most of us, it's either 10:30am or 1:30pm right now.
If the other person in my row asks me to close it, I will. But she looks perfectly content to me.
Why don't they also ask everyone to return their seats to the upright position for the comfort of those using laptops to try and get work done during this 5 hour flight?
Because this isn't a flying office. And it's also not a flying movie theater.
On the other hand, if this is my only complaint so far, things are going well.
