    Guess FAA is more concerned with what happens inside of airplanes than they are of what is going on outside before the plane departs, like TSA employees taking bribes and allowing unknown objects to be loaded on aircraft.

    I understand that FAA has no authority over TSA but it sure seems like the FAA should be investigating what risk TSA presents to the airplanes and the passengers.

    Technically off topic since it's not the point you're trying to discuss, but in this case the FAA was right: The pax should have been giving their undivided attention to the flight attendants and preparing for the emergency landing. According to news accounts, the cabin filled with smoke during this situation.

    I don't disagree but for the FAA to make a fuss after the fact is a bit pointless or they could have just sent the letter reminding the person about the rules and have left off making a record of the event.
