#1: Commercial airlines DO want you to use the kiosk. The attendants at the counter cost a lot more money and aren't as quick as the kiosks.

#13 - Doesn't this work with most of the other 7 billion people in the world, too?

#14 - Interesting choice of a Southwest plane, since you can only buy tickets directly from them for their flights.

#17 - In the U. S. at least, TSA agents cut off all the locks they see and throw them away, even on luggage they aren't searching.

#12 is false. I had a phone that I would know when a call was coming in before it actually rang. Simply because my computer speakers would buzz in a specific patter first from the interference.

There are two main thing people don't think about when saying phones don't interfere. cause it true that YOUR phone won't interfere. but the cell tower trying to talk to your phone has a lot more power and it will interfere. The other thing is there are many phones on a plane, and while one may only cause a unnoticeable amount of interference multiple phones can cause a problem.
