The end of “No-Smoking” signs on airplanes

Just how many times have you looked above your seat in an aircraft and wondered why they have those “No Smoking” signs at every row? I know I have! I think the last time I was on a flight that allowed smoking was in 1988. The aircraft had designated sections for smokers in every class, and the sign would go off a few moments after the plane took off.

Well, now days, almost every country has banned smoking in flight, making those signs pretty pointless, and constantly lit. In retrospect, what we really need are signs that tell us when it’s safe to use our portable electronic devices. I am glad this is going to happen as early as next year!
After this, all I need is a “No talking loudly” sign!
