Conventionally, fasten seat belt sign are turned off after all engine power being cut off, but it seems that some airline will turn off the sign at the same time the parking break of the aircraft being activated. In Japan , the former is JAL and later is ANA. How is it in case of your favorite airline?

It seems to be on most airline that I have flown that the sign doesn't turn off until the gate is reached and the aircraft no longer moves (parking break is applied).

But you always hear right when we leave the runways all the clicking of the people that cannot handle having their seat belt on and must remove them as soon as possible

I remember going to IBZ from MAN, 23.55 departure on TCX, taxiing to the runway for take-off, next thing this guy about 5 rows in front of me, gets up and opens the overhead compartment, and gets something out of his bag, never seen a stewardess run so fast to get him back into his seat.

I have no problem with having my seatbelt loosely fasted during the entire flight.

While the security risk might be considered minimal after the a/c has come to a complete stop, I usually open my seat belt only after the engines have been shut down. I make that sometimes even deliberately in order to slow all those people down, that choose to have the window-seat, but on the other hand cannot await to get off board and try to get out of the seat row, while the a/c barely has stopped.  Smile

I recall having read an article quite a number of years ago about airline-service by Aeroflot within the Soviet Union: There it was mentioned, that most frequent-flying pax, sat in their seats (presumably with their seatbelts fastened) until the cockpit-crew emerged from theit cockpit ! Pax considered it unsafe to stand up, as it was not gueanteed, that the a/c has reached its final destination yet (read: not continue to "taxi" but "taking to the skies" again".


For the exact time the "Fasten seat belt"-sign is switched off, to my experience it most times is done after power has been cut to the engines.

Once on a UA flight from ORD to ATL, we landed on 27R and then taxiied to the hold pad near where 27R and 32R intersect, because the plane at our assigned gate had developed mechanical problems, and we had to wait for another gate to open. This was July, 1996 during the Olympics, and there were a number of Asian travelers on board making connections.

Sure enough, as soon as we stopped, a lot of passengers unbuckled and started to empty the bins, even though one could look out of the windows on either side of the cabin and notice that we were no where near Terminal 1.

People are always quick to take them off. They neglect to think that when you are taxing back in from the runway, the Pilot could knock the throttle, accidentally turn the plane, taxi into a ditch, crash into the terminal building as in the movies, be hit by another plane at high speed. Now wouldn't you be happier being held in your seat then being thrown out.

Also in flight it's not hard at all, as everyone knows it's the exciting thing called clear air turbulence, or just turbulence you know is about to hit, where people can get badly injured by closely inspecting the ceiling with their head.
