Flying is weird.
  1. Ginger ale
  2. Tomato juice
    I have no idea why, but my mom always orders tomato juice on airplanes. I began following suit and I don't regret it.
  3. Water of course
  4. Water

  7. Also tomato juice
    I read an article once about how there's something specific (that of course I can't remember) about flying that makes tomato juice taste better in the air than on the ground.

  8. Apple Juice
    Usually I get the whole can because I'm the only one on the plane asking for Apple juice 😎

  21. I usually drink alcohol at the airport, so on the plane I drink water, and sometimes Bloody Mary mix on ice.

  22. Whatever beer they offer or whiskey neat.
    Suggested by @HisDudeness
  23. Coke, unless I'm bumped to First Class - the it's Heineken or Jack & Coke.
    Coke because a flight attendant friend of mine a long time ago told me that it doesn't fizz as long as Diet and they hate waiting for the fizz to go down. And rarely more than one alcoholic drink because I don't sleep on planes (List here: Why I Avoid Sleeping on Airplanes)
