Flight reviews are a really cool, new tool of the modern world. People like me take pictures, write witty little quips and share opinions on the seats, the food, the crew, and all things in between. The only problem is that they get a bit dull after a while. Same photos, same tone. Award winning sketch artist Christoph Niemann, an incredible artist whose sketches have been featured on the cover of every important publication including the New York Times and Time, got pencil and pen out to create his own fresh analog twist…

Who hasn’t shared this exact thought? I never win!

I just hope it was the best one of the bunch…

Right?! First rule of flying? You’ll always pick the wrong meal.

If only! Would there be anyone left on the plane? Who shoots first?!

It’s good to be young.

And that’s exactly why we need to change the way air flows in the cabin!

Is this the greatest, most truthful and most relatable passenger account of all time. Yes. It absolutely is. I just love the tact and creativity, which when combined with Christopher’s ingenious sketches make for a fantastic read. Christoph, if you’re listening, I want to fly with you. And also, I have some tips to save you from flying economy again.

Thanks to reader Francesco for sharing!
