Well, I certainly have an opinion about how addictive mobile phones have became, but this post isn’t about that. This is about how, at least in the air, mobile phones became the cigarettes. Sort of.
For years, I have heard cabin crews around the world saying “This is a no smoking flight” and then this little light above my seat will turn on.
Surprised I was during my last flight when instead of the old, reliable “No Smoking” light, I found a new one.
With the (awesome!) changes in air travel policies allowing people to use mobile devices during take off and landing, it makes sense to have a sign to ask the passengers to turn those off when needed, right? I just never thought it will take the same place that cigarettes had for so long. 🙂
