Dear 100 Hour Board,
Last night I flew from Salt Lake to Seattle. As always, before takeoff the stewardess announced that all electronic devices must be turned off until we reached cruising altitude. I am having a hard believing that using my iPod or laptop will disrupt the airplane's equipment and cause a malfunction. If a plane can be hit by lightning and still fly just fine, a portable electronic device should be nothing!! Any ideas about why they have this rule??
I've actually answered this before.
See Board Question #21954.
And enjoy Seattle!
