The newer generation 'Buses seem to be bugged where cabin lighting is concerned. Although I've never experienced anything like the above, very often the reading lights recycle by themselves with a clicking sound several times during the flight. Also after landing in very hot (temps >45deg celcius) the cabin lights go off or start to flicker (much shorter duration than in these vids), the call chimes start ringing sporadically, the FAP crashes and the CIDS gets degradated.

Quoting 1stfl94 (Reply 1): Has been known to happen on the shorthaul 767s (aircraft which are mostly 20 years old or so and haven't had any major works to the cabins) but seems the Airbus isn't immune!

Used to be common on the DC10 and L1011 with the multiplex systems, usually cured by tightening up a loose plug on one of the multiplex units, so nothing new. Can be annoying mid Atlantic when you are trying to sleep.

I recall it was also a frequent problem on early 747s. Not certain but I believe the 747 was the first aircraft with that type of multiplex system.

Never heard of something like that before, it sure looks like fun (at least for a few minutes).
On my last BA flight (B772) I had water dripping all over me from the overhead bin right after take off. Seems like they are trying hard to give their customers a unique flying experience
