Via Doc Searls I see a report from someone who was prevented from taking a photograph out of the window of their plane 'for security reasons'.
After taking several shots, imagine my surprise when one of the BA attendants closed the window shade and informed me that it was against British Airways policy for passengers to take such photos for security reasons. I thought she was kidding, but the head attendant confirmed what I had been told. And that it had nothing to do with where we were flying.
Absolutely ridiculous, it's paranoia run rampant.
