We're not going to lie, but Angry Birds might still be our favorite game to play on a plane. It can be played when in airplane mode (ahem, Alec Baldwin) and is the only game that makes us occasionally laugh aloud, all while flinging birds towards mean little pigs.

It's so big that, the other day during a stroll through a night market in Thailand, we spotted many stalls with bootleg Angry Birds T-shirts, tank tops and even flip-flops for sale. Thus it's probably no surprise that of course the airlines are trying to capitalize on the Angry Birds fervor, though not in the way you'd expect.
You know what would be cool? Adding the Angry Birds game to in-flight entertainment. You know what would be kinda weird? Themeing an entire flight after the game, and offering Angry Birds' biggest fans to fly it. According to The Independent, that's what Finnair is doing with their "Angry Birds Asian Challenge" flight:
