Star Wars Marathon in Flight

Today I am thinking back to a Star Wars Marathon that I watched back in 2016. I am thinking about Star Wars as this week has two important days; May the Fourth be with you and the Revenge of the Fifth :-).

Back in April 2016 I took a trip to Milan to help with a new product we were releasing.

That week I flew enough to complete a Star Wars marathon. Of course, not all nine films had been released at that time.

I was looking through the movies that were available when I boarded my first flight on a Tuesday. I noticed that all of the current Star Wars movies were available.

I had not watched the movies in the original trilogy for such a long time so decided to start watching them.

On my flight to Newark and on to Milan I watched Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi

Those three movies helped me better understand the latest movie (The Force Awakens) that I had watched for the first time when I flew to Canada the previous month.

Movies on Plane, Business First Class, International FlightWhen I flew back from Milan I continued watching the series. I was given a free upgrade to Business First for my flight from Milan to Newark, so it was nice to watch on a larger screen.

On the flight I watched The Phantom Menace and started to watch Attack of the Clones. However, I was falling asleep too much and had to keep rewinding so I finally decided to just go to sleep. It was nice to have a lay flat seat for the flight.

Movie Marathon in Flight, Star Wars Movie Marathon, Long FlightsOn the flight from Newark to San Francisco the screen was not as big. However, still a nice size screen to watch the movies on.

I finished watching Attack of the Clones and then watched Revenge of the Sith.

As I finished watching Revenge of the Sith I looked at the time remaining in the flight and found that I had just enough time to also watch The Force Awakens.

The movie finished just minutes before we touched down.

Have you ever watched a complete series of movies during a long week of flying?


p.s. I am thinking about whether I watched the ninth film (The Rise of Skywalker). It came out in December 2019 and I am trying to remember if I went and watched it before the shutdown started in March 2020.
