London - If you've ever travelled by plane, you are sure to have a special fantasy about what your perfect flight would be like. 

Knowing this ANA, Japan's largest airline, recently conducted a poll among 2 000 British passengers in an effort to discover what their ideal flight would comprise.

Huffington Post reports that the results of the airline's survey looked like this:

- Passengers would ideally live nine miles from the airport and board their plane 32 minutes after check-in. They'd like to take off at precisely 10:45 am

- After 27 minutes in the air, they want a cabin crew of six members to serve champagne. Apparently this dream crew will be headed up by British comedian, actor, author and television presenter, David Williams.

- Seats would ideally exist in rows of two, and passengers would like the window one 

- Passengers would also like to nap for 31 minutes

- During the ideal flight, screens would play the James Bond flick Skyfall.

- Finally, Jamie Oliver would cook chicken to be served 48 minutes after takeoff.

- In contrast to some recent studies, children would also be allowed on the aircraft - but only if they were quiet.

On that note, we were wondering, who would your ideal flight attendant be? Tell us in the comment section below!
