And on this topic, my netbook doesn't really play movies loud enough for me to hear on my headphones while flying. This appears to be a software limitation, since I know my headphones can play louder. So this is stupid, because why does the software limit the volume like that. There should be some patch I can download that will make the controls go louder. But I can't find such a thing by googling.

Sounds like that would be a limitation of your net books internal sound card. It probably isn't powerful enough to drive your headphones properly.
Which headphones do you have?

ipod headphones
iPod headphones are very low impedance headphones, meaning they are very easy to drive.
I think the combination of the weak netbook sound card and the external noise from the airplane is preventing you from hearing the headphones properly.
I would suggest getting a cheap pair of in ear headphones.
#1 They block out sound and lots of it. A decent pair can you give a 20-30db external noise reduction, which is almost equivalent to wearing a pair of earplugs.
#2 They sound at least 5 times better than iPod headphones.
#3 They are easily powered, which means you wont have any issues using them with your netbook.
I have had great experiences with this pair. $20 http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004HCFKNY/?tag=cl03f-20
