Itís funny because when I landed in Phoenix a few days ago during a flash flood warning a couple of loud alarms went off in the cockpit which turned out to be the phones of the pilots who had clearly not put their phones in airplane mode. Once we had landed everyone elseís phone started going off with the emergency warning as people turned airplane mode off.

Another time I was on a transcon flight and my phone wouldnít connect to the Wi-Fi. The flight attendant switched airplane mode on and off as part of their troubleshooting efforts.

I share these anecdotes simply because I think that most people take a far less hardline stance on this than the OPís neighbor on their flight.
