    My story with my American Airlines flight from LGA-DFW in the 90's on Everett's posting of the story is why I always keep my seatbelt fastened. Yes there was no weather and probably CAT and I used to listen to those announcements when they pilots said "I'm going to shut off the seat belt sign so you can feel free to move around the cabin but we do suggest that you keep your seat belt fastened like we do up here for your "comfort and safety". I always did. That's why I didn't end up hitting the overhead and was able to deplane using the Jetway rather then being carried out on a stretcher. Just a smart thing to do. I wish people would use common sense.

    sometimes the person sitting next to me takes off his seat belt. I look over at them and introduced myself as a former FAA inspector and pilot and that i recommend they keep the belt on for their own safety. I explain that the pilots do not know sometimes what is up a head and the aircraft can hit turbulence and they could hit their heads on the ceiling of the aircraft and be seriously hurt............they then put their belts back on!

    .......and they thank me for the information!

    Why passengers remove their belts in flight always amazes me!

    And a not realized by pax, the threat to F/As who generally don't have the luxury of wearing their seat belts during their duties. Don't ever take F/As for granted.

    Not to mention that some turbulence events turn into accidents when broken bones or serious injuries get involved.
