…it is bad for paying customers to use iPads, computers, earphones, and games on airplanes because of the (infinitesimal) chance they will interfere with the instruments.

United Airlines said Tuesday it was replacing the hefty flight manuals and chart books its pilots have long used with 11,000 iPads carrying the same data.
Flying has become a miserable and surreal experience.
