A lot of airlines don’t provide any in-flight entertainment, so a lot of us carry movies or tv series on our phones or devices while traveling on those long flights. If you don’t have a phone holder, you don’t have to spend money on expensive phone mounts, but just use the things you have in your carry-on, and then get the help from the crew!
