“5Words: No Electronics on International Flights?”
I doubt the airlines would allow this kind of nonsense. What ever happened to air marshalls? The last couple of these incidents have been foiled by *paying passengers*! If I ever have to personally kick the sh*t out of some pea-brained moron with fireworks in his pants, I hope at least they give me extra miles and some free upgrades.
I can predict the upcoming headlines: flight companies offering passengers pay-per-hour laptops! For only 15$/hour you can enjoy a wondrous Pentium3 12″laptop sporting windows XP and IE6 with a 0.5Mb/s internet access! BUY IT NOW!
Same thing happened with the no-fluids rule: as soon as the flight-companies pushed that through, prices of drinks in the tax-free zone and onboard mysteriously went up. Am I the only one seeing a pattern here?
Is only Mobiles or Other communicating devices are not allowed for use or All the electronic items like mp3 players, digicams etc are also not to be used onboard ?
They must allow the entertainment electronics..
