As for the timezone thing: On long flights i tend to set all my devices to display the time in the timezone of arrival, and since the expected arrival time is usually listed in that timezone as well it all matches up nicely.

Also please don't wake me when crashing, i'd rather die in my peaceful sleep than be screaming in a doomed aircraft

There are more airlines that have some kind of sticker/card/thing that let you indicate you prefer to be left asleep when meals are served. Chances are that the people around you will wake you up regardless, but if you manage to sleep through the commontion that's always nice.

As for the meal options: If available i usually select one as people that do are often served first, and you don't get the 'chicken or fish' option where the one you prefer is probably all given out by the time they get to you. This time i opted for the hindu meals, which might be interesting (i'm not hindu or otherwise religious, just hope they come up with something remotely tasting indian ).

Another nice one from a friend: He doesn't like his drinks watered down with ice cubes, and sometimes claims to be allergic to ice. Obviously this is biologically impossible, but you'd be amazed by how many people fall for it.

Unfortunately norwegian air doesn't serve ANY free alcohol except red and white wine, and only to people that order a meal. I usually do tell them to not put any ice in my drinks, but never tried the allergic line. You have to wonder how many flight attendants just decided, screw it, i'm not gonna argue with this guy .

So far, Cathay Pacific has had the best selection of alcohol in economy. Next time I fly, I think I'll just pick up a small bottle in duty free, or just bring some with me to be on the safe side. To date, I've flown many times with many small bottles, under 100ml, without any issues... worst case, I can just chug a few bottles. One of the more memorable moments from my trip to me, was the look on the face of the girl I was with, when I ordered 6 shots of vodka, with 2 pieces of lime, downed them one after the other, and then said ok, let's go. (Even in thailand, drinks in clubs are exorbitantly overpriced, and unfortunately I have a bit of a tolerance.)

Whoever is the person that decided people are only as wide as their hips, if there is a hell, I hope has to spend an eternity in a seat with his shoulders crushed to equal hip width.

You could bring a few 100 ml bottles with you on the plane indeed.

I've found that most airlines are actually quite relaxed about serving alcohol, at least the ones operating to and from europe. They often serve wine in those little 0.18 or 0.2 sized bottles, but they are often okay with giving you two of them at at time as long as you ask nicely.

I suppose flight attendants don't really give a shit on what you drink as long as you do so quietly and don't cause scenes. If serving two at a time saves them another walk up and down the plane, why not

Drinking in clubs in thailand is often a pretty bad deal when it comes to cost, especially if you want something other than beer. I'd recommend stocking up from the 7/11s (before midnight in bangkok!) instead. I suppose the more seedy places will always have the 'bucket' option, though the mix of sangsom rum, red-bull equivalent and coke seems a bit off to me

I did run into the odd hours policy on buying alcohol over there, and it not being permitted during certain times. Also extends to Phuket at least.

Most drinks were about $5 USD in baht, the most expensive, $15, for large strong cocktails.

I did consume a few buckets on phi phi over new years, specifically after. 2017 is the first year I've met completely 100% sober

I remember on one flight LAX to JFK, I helped out a flight attendant, with the overhead bin, and she was very nice after. Too nice. They didn't have any hard booze, but she gave me a ton of those little wine bottles. Which was great at the time, however, when I woke up hours later, in a cold sweat, it was one of the least pleasant *I feel like I'm gonna die now* situations I've experienced. Ever since, I strictly limit my wine consumption.

On a Cathay Pacific flight (love this airline) the steward told me to just pace myself myself, because technically they do have a limit, on how much they can give, and apparently I blew through it pretty fast. That said 15 minutes later he brought be a triple

Jet lag on the way there was a non issue, but now that I'm back, I am definitely hurting. That said, I think after this experience, and given what I've learned, I'm no longer nearly as apprehensive about longer flights, especially if I can just have some extra legroom. Would be nice to also have a second set of eat belts, to prevent from leaning to the side.

Good to know about phuket, i think i'll be there for a short while anywhere between krabi, ko lanta and bangkok. The sale time for alcohol is not enforced in pattaya btw, at least not a year ago (plenty of people drinking 7/11 beers on the beach anytime of day or night).

As to what they serve in economy class: I have no idea about any limits, and doubt they keep track at all really. As long as you're decent about things i've never seen or had any problems with it.

And as far as space goes: I usually go for the window seats on long flights i want to sleep on. They don't offer any extra legroom, but it can be nice to have the bulkhead there, squeeze in a pillow and survive that way

Getting exit seats has become more difficult and/or expensive on most airlines. One interesting exception are some indonesian domestic flights where they put foreigners at exit seats if possible just because they don't really fit the 'normal' seats that well.

I'm not even that tall (6 or 6'1) to begin with, but planes for 5 foot people are no good then
