Airlines often tell you that keeping mobile phones on during flights may interfere with aviation systems. This is an utter lie. Come on, if it was really so, then you should go and gift a garland of shoes to the idiot who designed such prone aviation systems.
On American Airlines, there is an announcement before every flight that people in the economy seats should not use the restrooms located in the business class section of the plane, because “this policy has been made to ensure security and safety (of the economy class passengers)”. Do they mean to say that the business class passengers may turn violent when someone from economy uses their restrooms?
Many of us would have encountered situations where we had been dropped from flights because of checking in late. And when you start making loud protests getting yourself heard by other passengers, a seat suddenly shows up in the system for you.
We all know why the airlines say all these things that they say. Asking to switch of mobile phones is mainly to prevent inconvenience to fellow passengers and disruptions in the ground mobile networks. Same goes for the restroom announcement. But why not say the actual reason? Why take all the passengers as stupid idiots when the airlines are the ones losing money?

as for the restrooms, maybe they think economy class passengers may not know how to operate the sophisticated tap systems in first class and may thus injure themselves with the end of a faucet...? whatever...
