Things Flight Attendants Know About You Immediately

The Truth About Cellphones

The truth is that the plane will not go down in a ball of flame if you happen to leave your mobile cell device turned on.  Actually, you will probably not be the only person flying with yours still on as many people honestly forget to turn them off.  Factor in those who intentionally ignore the flight crews instructions altogether and you can see that there is not really a chance of them causing the flight to crash.  The actual reason you are asked to turn them off and stow them is two-fold.  One, they can interfere with frequencies related to air traffic control, and two, they can easily become flying projectiles on take off and landing if not secured.
