Binge-Worthy TV Shows For Long Flights

G'day, everyone! 👋🏻

First of all, can you believe it's August already?

It feels like it was only last week that we were tuning in for the four-yearly Winter Olympics. (which was actually 5 months ago 🤯)

Time really needs to slow down; there’s still so much to see and do!

And speaking of ‘seeing’, are you familiar with the TV show “Game of Thrones”? 🐉

We ask because we recently had one of our team members experience severe emotional withdrawals. 😅

Why, you may wonder?

Well, they’d only just finished watching it (late bloomer - we know), and let’s just say this, what a way to wrap up a ~9-year-long TV series… 😂

If you know, you know. 🤫

Anyways, whilst we’re on the topic, TV shows can be a great way to kill time during those long, gruelling flights - some of which can actually be finished before you land! 🤓

So instead of wasting time scrolling through what seems to be an endless list of airline entertainment, we’ve curated a list of our favourite shows that can be binged within a plane ride:

(Oh, if you have any TV show recommendations, we’d love to hear them! Simply drop a comment below. 😁)

All of the above TV shows can be found on Netflix, be sure to download them before you take off though! ✈️

If you do/have watched any of the above, what'd you think of it? 🤔

Oh -

We do also have one last recommendation: to make sure you grab one of our prepaid travel SIMs before you fly.

We have various data and country options that allow you to access any essential apps, including maps or translators, as soon as you step off the plane. ✈️

It also takes the stress of trying to find a SIM while in a foreign country away and lets you stay connected with loved ones during your adventures. 🧡

You can check out our entire collection here. 👈🏻

And one last thing -

Do you have any TV show recommendations of your own? 🤔

We’d love to hear them! You can let us know by dropping a comment below. 🧡

Happy and safe travels! 🌍
