Did the statement have a superlative in it - no such as "watching DVDs is the best thing to do in flight"?

laptops relevant? no. All the relevant information has already been ascertained. It's just a question of rearranging it slightly...

Does the statement describe or make a claim about "in-flight entertainment" (generally speaking)?

Afraid I'm a little stuck...

Was in-flight entertainment referred to in the statement? Is this something you (or the e-mail sender) inferred?

Did the statement orignally appear in a movie? In a print publication? If in print, was it a publication that is commonly found in airplanes?

In the 80% of instances in which the assumption made in the statement is wrong, is this due to air travel at all? Location of the plane at the moment of the statement's reading or utterance? Some aspect of the readers or viewers that receive the statement? The film(s) that are going to be shown on the flights?

Is the statement most directly about any of the following:
Movies?
Entertainment?
Flying?
Safety?
International travel?
Being a passenger on a plane?

Is the statement most directly about any of the following:
Movies?
Entertainment?
Flying? this one
Safety?
International travel?
Being a passenger on a plane? and this one

some sort of entertainment involving passengers on board a flight and their behaviour then? Mmm..

Behaviour in terms of what they do? how they speak? changes in personality on board a flight? their attitude to others?

Is the programme 'Airline' or 'Airport' at all relevant? Please God, don't let Jeremy Spake be relevant!?! :)

High altitude or cabin pressure relevant? alcohol? (I may have asked that before!)
Are cabin crew relevant? or just the passengers?
