Traveling is a fun activity to do, for many is a luxury, for many is a must-do, for some it just sort of happens depending on the way the wind is flying. Regardless of your point of view on traveling, there are certain movies you should not see before your next trip if you want to be able to enjoy your vacation. There are many ways to travel: whether through plane, train, cruising or automobiles.
6 Movies Not To Watch When Traveling by Airplane
If you are planning on flying on your next adventure – you should definitely avoid these films prior to your trip:
1. Airport – released in 1970. The movie is about an airport trying to remain open during a snowstorm, while a bomber plots to blow up a plane in the middle of the snowstorm. The movie spun three sequels: Airport 1975, Airport '77 and The Concorde - Airport '79, each with their own plots.
2. Alive – released in 1993. Alive tells the real story of a rugby sports team survival in the Andes after their plane crashes. The surviving team members decide to eat the flesh of their dead relatives and friends. Have you decided which of your family members and/or friends would be eaten first? This gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “finger food.”
3. Air Force One – released in 1997. What happens when a group of terrorists decide to hijack USA President’s plane, Air Force One? Starring Harrison Ford as US President James Marshall, who is described as being a “Popular President” and a family man who loves his wife and daughter, and is a decorated Vietnam veteran and a Medal of Honor winner, who also speaks Russian.

As you are boarding Flight 180 en route to Paris, you have a premonition that the plane will explode in mid-air, killing everyone on board. What do you do? This is what happens to Alex as he is boarding Flight 180, which gets him of the plane along with others and setting off a chain of events. As the series of events begin to unravel, something starts happening to the survivors as they begin to die one by one through a series of bizarre accidents, and Alex looks for a way to cheat death's plan before it is too late. This movie grossed over $112 million worldwide and spun off 4 sequels and earning over $665 million worldwide. This movie made flying scary.
