Being the obedient gutless chicken, I complied. I turned it off(which is technically not possible because I have the special edition Kindle reader). She demanded that I hand it over to her to verify that it was off. She threw it back to me and missed. Fortunately, my seatmate caught it just before it landed on the floor.

Hasn't the ruled changed? Or does it not apply to US Airways?
Wow - I'd send US an e-mail, throwing a passengers electronic device is way out of line. Imagine how badly it would of been if it would of landed on the ground and shattered.

Were you on a mainline flight or express?
