While the iPhone is a great device, it seems that some pretentious iPhone users are taking their love a little too far. During a delayed flight, an iPhone user tried to challenge the pilot’s announcement of a storm delay by looking up the weather up on his iPhone. The captain quickly jumped on the PA to rebuke the fanboy.
“If the passenger with the iPhone would be kind enough to use it to check the weather at our alternate, calculate our fuel burn due to being rerouted around the storms, call the dispatcher to arrange our release, and then make a phone call to the nearest Air Traffic Control center to arrange our timely departure amongst the other aircraft carrying passengers with iPhones, then we will be more than happy to depart. Please ring your call button to advise the Flight Attendant and your fellow passengers when you deem it ready and responsible for this multi-million dollar aircraft and its passengers to safely leave.”
He apparently took the new iPhone ad a little too seriously.
