Portuguese man fined for having phone in "Flight Mode" on plane

A Portuguese man on a flight to Funchal had to pay a fine of two thousand euros for having put the phone in "flight mode" instead of turning it off completely.

Consumer rights watchdog Deco says the man had authorities waiting for him at Funhal airport for disobeying cabin crew and two months later received the fine, which a court upheld.

The airline said the aircraft in question could still have been affected by phones in flight mode, and the transgression was a very serious offence.

The airline has not been identified.

Are they crazy? My phone is always in flight mode during a flight! Maybe it was Airline Albatros!
