I use to work for an airline ,on the ground, but was still dragged into the argument. When passengers would still be talking on there cell as they were about to cross the tarmac to board there flight and I had to stop them telling them they were not allowed to procede until they "told me" the phone was off.
Well I have a question for the clever ones amongst us. They can make devices that "jam" cell phones making it impossible to receive and send calls. I know they are not expensive as this company sells them Phone Jammers.
So why do the airlines not use them wouldn't that solve all the problems?
