A WOMAN has revealed how passengers can watch films on their phone without holding the device in their hands.
TikTok user Georgia Maneta, who is known as manetaki on the platform, shared the hack on her social media account.
She captioned the post: "They didn't understand the assignment."
The video panned across to two other passengers who were sat on the opposite row.
The travellers had clipped their phones onto upright tray tables using the sick bag method.
This involves wedging the bottom of the plane's sick back between your case and your phone so that it can dangle over the top of the tray table when it's folded up.
