WTMG's Leo Faria: "I truly question Airplane Mode‘s existence, but I have to praise its developers for being upfront and honest with it. It’s incredibly boring, but so is being stuck inside an airplane for six hours in real life. This game can be called lots of things, such as a waste of time and an act of hubris, but it’s definitely not false advertising. This is a very accurate portrayal of what you can (and cannot) do while traveling in economy class, for better or for worse. I still cannot recommend to anyone, besides the half a dozen weirdos out there who really, really, desperately miss the feeling of being inside an airplane due to the current COVID-19 pandemic."
