  How do you spend most of your time while flying? 



"If it's a cross-country trip, I like to get some work done. If it's a short trip, I prefer to read a novel, the more mindless the better."
Nicole E. Ratner, CAE, CMP
Executive Director
American Association of Attorney-Certified Public Accountants
Fairfax, Va.

"I am the airlines' worse nightmare. I take tons of industry trade publications onboard, furiously rifle through them, pull out the articles that interest me and leave the remains behind."
Deborah Sexton
President and CEO
PCMA and PCMA Education Foundation

"I created a playlist for my iPhone of slower indie rock and folk that I listen to. I also like reading mysteries by Harlan Coben or J.A. Jance."
Cara Tracy, CMP, CMM
Director of Professional Development
National Speakers Association
Tempe, Ariz.

"I'm afraid I'm not a terribly interesting traveler. Because of the workload required prior to almost any trip, I'm usually asleep before the flight takes off and wake up when they announce we are landing."
Jennifer Baldwin, CMP
