ABSOLUTELY NO PHONE CALLS,
With texting and email avail on board, sometimes even gate to gate, there is NO NEED for phone calls.
Heck, we’ve even survived all these years without wifi.
People are published and rude..most always they talk louder on a phone than they do in real life. Must us us will be absolutely Activated listening endlessly to someone else’s one-sided conversation on an airplane. It’s annoying enough when somebody disregards the gym’s policy of no cell phones, and they (try if I’m around..) spend the next hour on the machine nearby (just go outside, already) AGRO ! In an airplane, you won’t be able to get away from the person, at all.
Long flights are uncomfortable enough. Sometimes crowded. Sometimes crying babies, or someone hogginf your space is enough to contend with. Already the seats are uncomfortable, and we must sit mostly motionless for hours, not always in the seat of our choice.
We have plenty of ways to entertain ourselves these days, with smartphones, laptops, movies, and books (remember them?) Take a nap if you need to.
By please NO phone calls.
Remember, Headphones are the standard in airplanes. We don’t stream movies, or music into the cabin. There is a reason for that: your neighbor’s SANITY.
We’re Overjoyed to use our phones to play games, read books, watch downloaded movies, and catch up on or email. Let’s so while we’re ahead 🙂
