    Possibly. Sorry, I regret I even commented on this thread. (Not your fault, obviously!) Probably other posters would have an opinion/some knowledge.
    Oh no don't be sorry. I was asking it as a general question "tothe board" as opposed to necessarily posted directly to yourself

    No problem. I was just getting fed up with being sniped at for what was originally a very bland comment! I know it wasn't by you!

    Its a silly idea really.

    A functioning phone is arguably just as dangerous - if anything its more dangerous as software installed on the device can be run to trigger an explosion elsewhere on an aircraft.

    All of this is just trying to quell panic at a time when the ISIS situation is going on to avoid damage to the airline business.


    These aren't free. These costs will be added on to the costs of flights and put on to the customers instead.
    Exactly my thinking here. I mean it's far easier to put on a bit of software which dials a bomb...
