The new mobile phone policy (effective Nov 2002) is as follows:
Mobile phones can be used on ALL
A330, 767, 737 and 717 services (whether CityFlyer or not) on BOARDING and ONLY from an aerobridge. The other requirement is that all other cabin doors other than L1 (and L2 on A330) are closed. This is irrespective of refuelling operations. You cannot turn your mobile on upon arrival because galley doors will likely be open and refuelling will have commmenced.
If the inbound is late and boarding takes place during galley servicing then the CSAs will make a PA syaing mobile phones cannot be used.
The TRIAL was conducted on CityFlyer services only and you could use your mobile on arrival (during the trial) but they found that delayed flights were losing even more time as galley servicing couldn't start until the last pax was off. Hence the new policy, which was endorsed by CASA.
CityFlyer services you can't use your mobile due to the stand off bays.
CSAs make a PA saying mobile must be switched off before boarding because some gates that 717s use do not have an aerobridge so they want things to be standard. Though if you are using your phone onboard (and the a/c is at an aerobridge) then we won't tell you off.
Free beer and wine is after 1200 on PER
services. Also you are quoting the old policy for mobile use (from the trial). The new poilcy is above.
