Don't be that person

3 weeks ago, on a Riyadh-Mumbai flight, the person behind me took a f*ckin call at 3 in the morning for at least 25 minutes. It definitely worked well for him, but he nearly lost his life, trust me. As SC1: don’t be that person.

How do you know people won’t be asleep? You don’t know everyone’s schedule. I always sleep when I can on flights no matter time of day

Against FAA rules. Illegal.

I appreciate flights for the exact reason that I’m not reachable for online meetings. Don’t do it.

Tried it on an AA flight to listen in just to see if it was possible. connection was not good enough. not worth it. if your role in the call isn’t important enough for them to reschedule the call then missing it shouldn’t matter. someone can prob summarize the meeting for you in 2min when you get to where you are going.

Yeah that’s definitely not allowed on airplanes

Planes are my only time to disconnect cause I either work or am with family ... enjoy the time on the plane for some “me time"

I tried once on a call I primarily just had to listen to. Worked ok for a bit then got booted off.

Nope does not really work

I have just to listen in. Worked fine if you’re on the planes with newer satellite WiFi.

Don’t do it

Seriously it’s not a good idea. Change your flight or miss the call

New to the job and I’m finding it impossible to speak up in Zoom brainstorm sessions.

Got a zoom link for interview. Checked zoom link about 1 hour before interview time to ensure it works. Turns out it’s the link to the interviewer’s room where he’s holding an unrelated meeting with other people, there was no passcode, so I quickly exited. No webcam or audio on from my side. Cause for concern? I would think best practice is private zoom link with code to enter…
