I had not much chance of sleeping on the flight back from Melbourne last night thanks to some football fans returning to Perth - not sure which game they were over viewing given both WA teams were playing in Perth (possibly Essendon). The woman behind me couldn't operate her screen so kept pushing it with force until I eventually got sick of her, turned around and pointed out that there was actually someone sitting in the seat in front that didn't appreciate her whacking the seat every ten seconds. She did stop after that but yammered away the whole flight so that didn't help either.
Noise cancelling headphones required tRicky. Failing that, some form of annoying fellow passenger cancelling device. You could have put your seat right back to annoy her.
Yeah I could have but I don't like doing that although the guy in front of me from NZ to Melb had his seat back for the entire flight. Normally the aircrew get them to put it forward when it's mealtime but not this time.
