    The new policy is active effective today, Nov. 2nd. Big items (laptops) need to be stowed. Phones, ipaps etc have to be in airplane mode. Kindles, digital cameras etc. Are fine. So you no longer have to miss those critical ten minutes of playing Candy Crush.

    Gogo still doesn't kick in until 10k feet.

    So yesterday the planes will crash if you leave them on, today they won't. I wonder how the armchair aviation electronic experts that have been arguing about the "rules" are doing now?

    I watched my movie on my iPad, gate to gate, JFK-FLL last night!! Wasn't even asked to take my noise-canceling headphones off.
