The “no smoking” light, usually next to the “fasten seat belts” light, has become obsolete on most airlines since the nearly-universal inflight smoking ban. And with cell phones coming onboard soon (Air France, Ryanair, BMI, TAP, and others will be testing inflight mobile phones), the signs will soon be replaced by “no cell phone” signs in the cabin.
The “no mobile” sign will show a mobile phone crossed out and will be illuminated during takeoff until the plane has reached a certain altitude in order to ensure there is no interference with mobile networks on the ground.
But what will all-smoking Smintair‘s overhead lights look like??
