Remember when getting ready for take off pretty much meant getting rid of cups and crayons and making sure your seat belt was fastened? Now we have to power down our phones, tablets, noise canceling headphones, put the laptop away, oh, and get rid of cups and crayons and make sure the seat belt is fastened! When all goes well it’s a short wait from taxi to take-off and then we hear the tone that indicates we’ve reached 10,000 feet and now we can play games and listen to music and read and do all the things our electronic devices allow us to do.

So do you know the 5 electronic items you may NEVER use on an aircraft? Sure, everybody knows you aren’t allowed use your phone to actually make calls, but there are 5 other items, easily found if you know where to look, we are never to use on an aircraft. Do you know what they are?

Last year in December I gave you all a pop-quiz (under the then rules) to see how “Delta Smart” you really are.  Well let’s see how you are this year. I want you to check the image below of 16 electronic devices and see if you can pick out all 5 that are never permitted for use on an aircraft. If you can guess all 5 of them right (comment ON THE BLOG not via e-Mail please), you will have a chance via random.org to win a  $100  SkyMall gift card (a huge shoutout and thanks to Skymall for the generous gift to the blog btw), and if you tell me where I found all of these, and are also the winner,  you will additionally get a $25 restaurant.com gift card as a bonus prize.

Here is the last bit to the fun. I will NOT publish ANY of your comments until the very end so you will not know what others are commenting (you are Delta smart, after all, and don’t need help from other readers)! I will hold the drawing at 10-11:PM EST tonight. – Rene

 

EDIT: We have our winner – voting is closed!

    Never permitted: Radio, TV, External Drive with Cable, Wireless Mouse, Satellite Radio.

    I don’t know where you found these, but I found them at http://msp.imirus.com/Mpowered/book/vds11/i5/p172.


    Now that the the official requirements are met, all radios and TVs have always been banned that I can remember (Walkman TV, anyone? Not that you’re going to lock onto an analog broadcast TV station for long at 600 mph….) Satellite radio is a logical extension of that policy. External drive with cable I don’t understand. Wireless mouse – if it’s an RF (radio frequency) wireless mouse, that’s a transmitter and makes sense. However an IR (infra-red) wireless mouse would be physically incapable of causing any interference. I suppose it would be asking a lot for the FAs to know the difference, though.
