Re: Not allowed to film or take photos in flight

When I flew SAV-BOS-EWR last year on Jetblue, i had my lil pocket camera with me, i kept it aimed at the window and not toward the interior of the plane and had no issues.

I see N771UA scheduled to VCV tomorrow. Should we be worried about her?

Re: 787 Production/Delivery Thread - 2018
