dior, that's cool. i didn't take offense to the video. its funny but kinda racist. reminds me of the captain i just flew with. the first officer asked me a question about something random one time and i responded with a "mmmhmm". captain coon found my response hilarious. he was like "mmmhmm sista girl" while cracking the hell up. everybody was looking at him like
it really wasn't that funny.
xamay, i honestly don't know whether they use the same potable water in the lav that they use for preparing coffee and tea. i do know that the galley water system undergoes regular testing to adhere to safety standards. i drink the coffee all the time.
praz, i see what you're saying. every airline has the same policies regarding phone usage as far as i know. power down when the aircraft door is closed. turn them back on in "airplane mode" (not really necessary because like Sang mentioned, you won't get a signal anyway) after 10,000 feet. power back down while landing after the double chime and pa. turn back on after landing.
emirates is fancy schmancy, afro. i like them and lufthansa best.
tokyo, i suggest you either stow your fragile items either underneath the seat in front of you or wait until after everyone else stows theirs before you place them in the overheads. people will smash your sh*t and not think twice about it.
