what is the matter with people
They think they are too important to have to play by the rules. Plus they are way to unintelligent to understand that cell communications during flight could cause an air disaster.
Ah, Toby, he was obvious part of the "Entitlement Class" and the airline had not received sufficient notification of his anointed position.
John, it sure seems that way. America, land of the "do what you wants"
This is interesting. I realize that people are not supposed to use their mobiles on takeoff or landing; though, on the other hand, airlines seem to promote the usage of mobile devices on board aircraft these days. With all the ways you can plug your mobile devices in and i believe one airline is actually going to offer wireless internet!?, is not the airline partially to blame??
NO!!! You do not know what is used for these mobile device programs, it is the airplanes own hardware that communicates outside the aircraft not your phone. You communicate (play games) through the airplane hardware.
