What to do in cruise?

Hello, I need some suggestions of what to do when cruising.
I usually listen to music and do fuel checks. For the realism.
But when I did it for an 11 hours flight I barely survived.
Any tips to make it realistic without making me bored?

Go to sleep? I don’t recommend sitting at your device watching it go in a straight line for 11 hours…

If it’s not an all nighter, you could get some work done, watch a movie, go outside, etc.

Yes, I’m not healthy unfortunately. :/
I can barely sleep.
And sometimes when I do sleep I oversleep.

How to not get bored? for more tips.

You can do what pilots do and look out front and fly the plane.

I recommend you find activities to do, work, sports, etc. Theres no need to monitior your device over-night or throughout the day. :)

If you are unsure of how your flight is going you could always do a quick check-up or check LiveFlight :)

In real life, a pilot would be in the cockpit running checks, comunicating with ATC, filling out paper work and more…

I find that mid-flight is a good time to get some housework done. That way you’re rewarded with a fun landing!

Don’t listen to the noobs. If you want realism, you will stay up and watch your flight to make sure you are not flying through anyone. Now I will say, youtube and netflix while glancing at IF non stop is a big yes. lol

I agree with Will. Usually during my long haul flight I finish up my homework and just whatever you do when ur not in a flight

maybe read a book? talk to someone (like talking to a co-pilot)

So I look beside me and talk to my non existing co pilot?
Pretty eventful conversation.

Im pretty sure everyone is joking…at least i was. Continue on. Do what you’d like, just make sure IFATC isn’t around. Nobody likes violations.
