You may start seeing more and more of them again now that fuel is so expensive. Using jets on short routes is quite silly (I'm assuming that since it was a United Express TP that it was a run to Grand Junction from Denver).
I think you'll also find that there was no 1st Class section on that aeroplane.
Those prop-planes always made it seem like if the blades came off, they'd slice right through the person sitting next to them! :icon_eek:
No electronic devices is the airlines' way of saying "just in case we fuck something up during landing, we don't want you distracted or have small objects go flying all around the cabin and hit people in the head with"
In the last 5 years, I've flown probably about 250,000 miles, and have never once turned off my mp3 player and had any issues during takeoff/taxi/landing.
And by the way Miss, tell your friggin sister to move out of the middle of nowhere so our fancy radio host can take a fancy jumbo jet to visit them. I do not know the stats, but that little piece of shit HAS to have a higher crash rate then the big ems.
