I’m curious whether I’ve just been really unlucky this month, or others encounter the same issue. In-flight wifi has changed my flying life. It’s amazing to be able to stay productive while in the air, and as much as I initially avoided it and wrote it off, I now don’t know how I lived without it.
But I’ve been in the same situation three times this month, and it’s making me a bit frustrated. Electronic devices have to be shut off when descending through 10,000 feet, which is maybe 10-15 minutes before landing. However, on several flights this month the captain forecasted turbulence on approach, and asked the flight attendants to prepare the cabin for landing early. I’m fine with the seats being in the upright position and tray tables stowed, though it sucks to have to put your laptops away 45 minutes earlier than usual just because the flight attendants can’t technically do their “safety checks” again.
The problem is that one of these flights was only about two hours and I purchased in-flight wifi specifically for that flight, so I got maybe 30 minutes of wifi instead of 90 minutes.
Anyway, just wondering if anyone else gets as worked up over this at times as I do. Bueller? 😀
