Airplane mode

I have been wanting to write about this for the longest time but didn't had the time, blah blah blah... yada yada.. and so forth.

Anyway, I'm curious as how much people know about this airplane mode function in our iPhone or android?

Do you turn on the airplane mode in the airplane? Or do you turn the airplane mode on after take off? What is your practice?

You see, it is my job day to day to remind passengers to switch off their mobile phones and electronic devices for take-off and landing and I always get the reply " It's in airplane mode."

I'm gonna make it clear that Airplane mode is only for cruising. Which means when the airplane stop climbing, you can switch on your device to airplane mode. And then switch OFF your device when you're landing. Easy as that.

It's really funny when a cabin crew ask you to switch off your phone, and there you are, saying it's on airplane mode. It doesn't make you look very smart.

Look at the image above, and remember, only during cruising. It is not for take off and landing.
