In re: Inflight TV

Thought this was an interesting little facet of the Jet Blue emergency landing that occured, it was the fact that JetBlue features live TV, so while the plane was circling in the air awaiting it emergency landing due to a malfunctioning front landing gear the passengers got the surreal experience of watching themselves. I don’t know how i’d feel having the ability to hear the talking heads on CNN discuss my situation, in any event its evidence of how the spread of real time information is effecting us, another interesting area was that some news was coming from the plane via Blackberry text messages. The plane did turn off the broadcast system when they began to attempt their landing so they were spared that. See CNN story or on Flightnest

  1. It is better to be informed than to sit there wondering more about your circumstance that others may be aware of … we are adults and processing information is a gift that we have. I can see how it might scare a child or a mentally compromised adult.

    Interesting comment you make
