Safety Measures

For your personal safety, please return to your seat and fasten your seatbelt whenever the “fasten seatbelt” sign is illuminated. During takeoff and landing, return your table and seat back to their original upright positions. During landing, please do not stand up or leave your seat until the plane has come to a complete stop and the fasten seatbelt sign has been switched off. Because turbulence is often unpredictable, we strongly recommend that you keep your seatbelt fastened at all times while seated. Carry-on luggage should be stowed in the overhead bin or under the seat in front of you. To remind you, interfering with the flight crew during the course of their duties is an offense.
