What donations to the airlines have you made throughout the years by leaving things in seatback pockets?
The other day on my flight I was in the first row and had a friendly flight attendant so we chatted a bit. She was complaining about the size of the novel she was carrying. I replied that she should get a Kindle because that is the whole point. She stated that if she wouldn’t pay $200 for a device that will just end up left on the plane. I inquired if she has found many and she said I wouldn’t believe how many she’s found (and since she doesn’t have one I’ll assume she is honest and turns them in instead of getting new toys). I told her it is my policy to never put anything in the seat back pocket. The time I am most tempted is during a long-haul flight. The problem is the longer the flight the more I try to sleep. The more I try to sleep the less likely I am to remember whatever it is.
I will attach my glasses to the seat back pocket since I am so blind there is no way I will make it out of my seat without my glasses, but aside from that I follow the mantra of the regional carriers and leave only the airline magazine, sky mall, airsickness bag, and safety card.
