One more thing about cellphones at cruising altitude - as an engineer I do not recommend doing it. However, thank god it was not blocked by a ground-based "service provider" when many people used their cellphones from the key planes on 9/11.

Putting control in charge of an unthinking policy implemented (apparently) to maximize profits for the operator, but justified by whining about rude behavior among seatmates and shyness about asserting one's rights (Esbin's ridiculous justification) would have eliminated an important emergency option that in that case at least, saved lives. (NOT ENOUGH).

Let's stop the PFF pandering and bullshit.
