    Thinking back to some of the flights I've had, I would much rather have sat next to a sack of potatoes.

    Boeing is irresponsibly putting the lives of their passengers at risk. for years, the airlines have ordered me to switch off my devices because their signals can interfere with the plane's navigation system.
