Step 3:

Mount your phone, insert your headphone and play a movie :) Surprisingly, this mount held really well even against turbulence during the flight. This mount will work well if the seat in front of you is upright. Once declined, the viewing angle is compromised.

Another option is to always bring a portable suction type phone mount (http://blog.alienskin.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Kensington_Mount.jpg) with you while traveling and sit beside the window so you can fix the phone on the window in front of you while on flight. I was able to use this for a few flights but the DIY barf bag project was more interesting and challenging :) 
This is genius!! MacGuyver would be proud, assuming he had a smartphone. And flew commercial airliners. And wasn't busy deactivating the bomb attached to the fuselage with the stewardess' ID pin and a pair of coffee stirrers. <br> <br>Well done!
haha yeah he's probably busy doing something else. They have to do a remake of that series!
aii cannot finish this diy.. wrong plane company.. ;-)
Epic smart!
This is awesome man. Ive never been on a plane but this is something ill definatly do!
Love it! This needs to be added to my unusual uses for barf bags 'ible.
Cool!!! <br>I imagine the phone dropping in the coffee, that will look funny!
That would be one expensive coffee!
Clever! Better for your neck.
A lot of people asks me &quot;why not just place your phone on the table propped up at an angle with a kickstand or something else?&quot; WoundedEgo just says the answer right here :P Plus it's more cool this way haha
a serious Macgyver move - I love it. I have noticed that many barf bags do not have a seal strip anymore :( This could easily be a product!
That is soooo MacGyver!!
Just brilliant!
I notice the latch is not covering the tray table (as it is sideways) - how do you stop the tray table from falling down? <br>And what if - like all the US flights, the international flights and the Australian domestic flights we just took in the last three months - not one of the barf bags had any think like those wires - or worse still, did not even have barf bags available (I'm looking at you, Delta!), even on request? Suggestions?
Kessie, fortunately the table in front of me then had a sticky hinge so it didn't fall off even without the hatch locked. If it does though, you can use more metal pieces or credit card to lock the table. I'm not sure what Delta's airline use...perhaps is the flexible metal along the lips of the bag? If so, you can use this phone dock instead: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5T40djmP2js
Frickin' brilliant!!! Thanks!
You might well have just become my new hero! I admire ingenuity on the fly (pun intended), and the skill of thinking simple - BRAVO!
Very kind words! Thanks for the praises...appreciate it :)
Zest is an international (but mostly domestic) airline in the Philippines. I made this on my trip to Boracay. I was watching the recent Pacquiao vs Marquez fight...best fight I've ever watched. No Wi-Fi on this budget airline. The video was downloaded prior to my flight. The attendants didn't mind my project but they shared a few smiles upon noticing it :)
Awesome! Did any flight attendants say anything about it?
Showing this to a friend who flies every week almost!
This is excellent.
Zest Air? never heard of it. What where you watching? did they have wi-fi in the plane?
You made an Instructable on a plane. This is awesome. <br /> <br />GM
