Cancel Flight!

Hello there!
Let me start by saying: I wasnt sure were this would belong, but ill post it here anyhow...

Anyway here is my Idea (Probably been thought of before now, but i didnt find anything with the Search box)

A Cancel Flight Button!

It could be right were the "Return to Graveyard" button is when you're dead...
We've all done it... you know it, I know it...
You get on a Flight Path and think to your self "FU.... um.. Darn, I meant to go elsewere!" So you have to log out, then log back in again, which works, but is a pain if you have to do it each time, waiting for wow to load :\

At the moment, when you choose a Flight point, the gold doesnt come out of your bag straight away, each FP you pass, a little is taken from your bags, until you reach your destination!

We could have it, so if you click "Cancel Flight" a confirmation Dialogue opens to stop accidental clicking! :)

Please leave comments! :)

Been said alot in the past i don't think it will be implemented any time soon to be honest, Anyway we can fly anywhere now with "Flight Masters License" So why not use the trusty mount :P

Good idea. I sometimes use it if I want to go AFK for a minute. It's faster to fly myself though so if I get back before I get to where I'm going I'd rather carry on flying there myself.

However what I tend to do now is higher than the zone, point in the direction of where I want to go and hit auto run and go afk for a few minutes. Can result in death. :P

You don't have to quit the game, just type /camp. That'll take you to the character selection screen and you can go from there. If you get back to your character it will still be in flight but now it will stop when it reaches the first FP along the route.
Still not perfect but faster than restarting the whole game.

It would be cool if you could have a jump off button like you have in those flying quests and you float down to earth in a parachute :)

I think it should be without a parachute.

Obvious suicide attempt is obvious.

She didn't say quit the game, she said relog... which is exactly what you said ;)

But I agree with the idea. Often hopped on a gryphon for a long flight and then realised that I'd forgotten to do something important.

Like choose the correct location to fly to. I do it all the time.

I like the idea of hopping off in mid flight, but it should only be available to people who already have the option of flying there on their own mount. Otherwise low level characters could use it to get somewhere they couldn't normally get without dying a lot.

I used to jump off the zepplin from Orgrimmar to thunder bluff to get to Crossroads with a low level character, I don't know if you still can, you didn't need to use slow fall or anything like that.

Sort of nice, but I don't think I'd ever use it myself. I always afk or alt-tab while flying so wouldn't notice if I flew the wrong way :p

I like the idea, if you cannot jump off mid-flight - at the very least it would be nice for the flight to stop at the next nearest stop that is on route to the original chosen destination.

Nice. Been playing since pre-TBC but didn't know about this. We should have one of those threads again: "Useful stuff that a lot of people don't know about."
