El tema de los gadgets abordo

Postby mcardona727 » Mon Oct 27, 2014 5:53 pm

Independientemente de la interferencia con los sistemas de navegación a bordo... creo que hay un punto bien explicado sobre por qué las tripulaciones son tan reticentes a los celulares:

Last year, the FAA determined that it was safe for passengers to use electronic devices during takeoff and landing, as long as the airplane is equipped with proper interference technology. Cell phones must be in Airplane Mode, according to the FAA, but as a matter of practical application, it is impossible for flight attendants to check each mobile device. Thirty-one airlines, which carry 96 percent of commercial passengers in the States, have met FAA standards for interference protection.

The flight attendants union, however, believes that not only was the ban removed without going through the proper channels, it also decreases airline safety. The union argued the devices could become projectiles during turbulent takeoffs and landings, and that they distract from the safety demonstration at the beginning of the flight.

George Hobica, an air travel expert, explained that the flight attendants make their strongest point when it comes to safety. "If you asked 100 fliers about the demo, where their life vest is, they wouldn't know. When the plane landed in the Hudson, people left without their life vest — of all planes to leave without your life vest!

¿Qué opinan al respecto? Creo que los viajeros más experimentados argumentarán que ya conocen los procedimientos... y creo que más de uno de nosotros a veces los damos por obvio. Sin embargo sabemos que en nuestra industria seguir procedimientos es prevenir accidentes y tragedias. Dudo mucho que se vaya a revertir el tema de uso de gadgets pero algo en tema de cultura de seguimiento a procedimientos de seguridad por parte de pasajeros debería sin duda promoverse.
