First, I need to provide some background. I took a flight for business this past Monday morning and on the United flight from Houston to St. Louis the flight attendant forced all passengers to remove liquids (waters bottles, coke, coffee, etc.) from the seat back pockets during takeoff/landing as she claimed this is a FAA Regulation.
I have flown a fair amount in the past 5 years but have never once heard this pronouncement. I have flown on the type of aircraft before as well and never heard it. I was just wondering if anyone else has ever had a flight attendant force you to hold water bottles during takeoff/landing?
