Funny Plane Story

    So I was just listening to the song "Jet Airliner" by the Steve Miller Band and remembered this cool thing that happened to me a few years ago. I don't know why I'm sharing it, but why not?

    So one time I was flying to go see my relatives who live on the east coast. Typical trip. Well, the FAA had just said that leaving your device in Airplane Mode during takeoff was acceptable and the stewardess who was on the plane didn't know that they had done so.

    This was also after they had announced to the plane that devices had to be off. They tried to tell me to turn my device up, but I pulled up an article stating the otherwise. A minute later, they announced to the cabin that using your device in Airplane Mode was perfectly fine and you didn't need to turn off your device. It felt pretty good to help the other passengers out.

    So do any of you have any funny (or horrible) plane stories? Share them with me on Twitter or ADN.
