    Have you ever felt bad because you are not able to let your family participate in your joy of simulator flying?

    I just saw that a solution is on the way. And since it simulates the economy class, it won't even need much space.

    No worries, I will not place a PlugIn request for now.

    Unfortunately the included movies are limited to "hit movies of the 1930s". But the virtual meal sounds good. It even includes a fish option. On the other hand, the crying baby is not guaranteed.

    The entire feature list is fantastic and would surely be a candidate for the April 1st Joke Award.
    • Taxi, take-off, and landing.
    • Fairly accurate satellite imagery of your flight path.
    • Snacks, premium beverages, and meal service (incl. fish option).
    • Carry-on bag with a book, headphones, pen, and charging cable.
    • Overhead reading light and complimentary aircraft information card.
    • Inflight safety video produced by IFC's in-house team of expert air hosts.
    • Randomized events on every playthrough, such as turbulence, bad wifi, and delays.
    • Authentic ambient noise—whose baby is that???*
    • Inflight entertainment system featuring a flight tracker and hit movies of the 1930s.Our award-winning magazine, Stratospheres, filled with articles, crosswords, and Sudoku.
    *Crying baby not guaranteed on every flight.
