So there I was, just settled in to a 4 1/4 hour flight, agreed I didn't want to purchase yet another pair of airline headphones to see Shrek yet again, when I found out I couldn't listen to the 1Gb of music I'd just transferred on to my moby. The reason? The airline didn't allow mobile phones to be used (at any time), even in flight mode.
I would argue that a mobile phone is a device for the transmission and reception of telegraphic signals - in flight mode it can't do that, so technically is no longer a mobile phone. However, there's no point in arguing that with Tracy Trolly Dolly as she doesn't make the rules.
This wasn't the only airline I've used this year with the same rule, so what's the point in having flight mode on your phone? :cry:
