    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.

    They could've just put in some TVs and used couch potatoes!

    I never turn off my electronics during takeoff and landings. I just keep rocking on with my bluetooth headphones. I don't know how many plane flights or helicopter flights I've been on.

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