No offense, y'all, but a lot of these judgements seem quite rude! It isn't particularly nice what you're doing...

Agreed. I'm watching "Morning Joe" right now from the comfort of my couch and wondering if I'm a Kettle. I'm not even at the airport!

A text would surfice. I do this often.

I always find it annoying when 30 people grab their cell phones, on mind you by the end of the runway. I have an IPhone and it does not turn on that quick, so I assume these phones are ALREADY on.... But I digress..

Upon landing, a barage of calls saying "i landed". Can one not wait til they are in the terminal?

Well, I agree. If my BP says PREM and a throng of people are waiting for their zone (1, 2, etc) and PREM is called to board, then you might perceive me to be kettle as I move past the lice, but I ain't.
