    I just love the majestic appearance of airplane wings in flight. These taken flying out of Miami, USA recently:

    HAVE YOU FLOWN RECENTLY?

    Remember the announcement when flying - to turn off all electronic devices before takeoff!

    Looks like that restriction is a thing of the past. In this AA flight we were told that passengers are permitted to use their electronic devices. I was surprised - but complied.

    I didn't bother checking further about it until I got thinking about it with this post. Indeed, it turns out that the FAA made the new ruling last October and different airlines started implementing it from Nov 1'st, 2013 onward:


    From what I read:
    As to the last restriction on cellphone use - - - there was WiFi in the AA plane - so emails, tweets, etc, can take place for communication. Laptops and devices larger than a tablet, still need to be stowed away during taxi, takeoff and landing.

    Just in case you didn't know. :)
