Despite the fact that everyone who can afford a plane ticket can probably afford ''something'' you can read an eBook on, this is still some way from becoming a DeadHorseTrope. Paper books don't need batteries, after all and some airlines still insist you turn off all electronic devices during takeoff and landing. Most of them can even be bought ''as'' eBooks.

->''It is a simple universal law [that] People always expect to use a holiday in the sun as an opportunity to read those books they've always meant to read, but an alchemical combination of sun, quartz crystals and coconut oil will somehow metamorphose any improving book into a rather thicker one with a name containing at least one Greek word or letter (''The Gamma Imperative, The Delta Season, The Alpha Project'' and, in the more extreme cases, even ''The Mu Kau Pi Caper''). Sometimes a hammer and sickle turn up on the cover. This is probably caused by sunspot activity, since they are invariably the wrong way round.'' -->-- '''Terry Pratchett''', ''The Last Continent''

* LadyNotAppearingInThisGame: Goes hand in hand with ContemptibleCover. It ''will'' usually have miscellanious fanservice to balance it out, though (see above).

* MadLibThrillerTitle: As the second page quote demonstrates, an Airport Novel is likely to be titled this way, especially after the popularity of ''Literature/TheDaVinciCode''.
