I think the vet spent a little too much time listening to the airlines. From my Tokyo vet.
PLEASE NOTE: No pets were hurt while taking this photo on my iPhone.
I spent last week traveling (A lot of miles) and every time that we took off I had the same thoughts:
I just don’t understand why. According to this article:
Decades ago the US Federal Aviation Administration and the Federal Communications Commission determined that electronic devices could send signals that would interfere with the equipment on a plane, officials said. Therefore, all electronic games, MP3 players and laptops have to be turned off until the plane gets above 10,000 feet.
Mobile phones are not to be used for calls or Internet use on a cellular network anytime the plane is in the air, though they can be used in “plane mode” for such activities as playing games or updating one’s calendar.
Not considering an Alec Baldwin, just perplexed.
