Hello Charles

Last week on a flight from New Orleans to DFW, the pilot announced he would have to perform some sort of precision landing due to the very low visibility there. I had a window seat and didn’t see the ground until a few seconds before touchdown.

What is interesting is that he told all passengers to switch off all electronic devices, and not to have them in flight mode. This was repeated by the cabin crew a few times. It’s the first time I have heard this.
