It's a techie's worst nightmare, though a great reason to stay old school.
Think about it. AirPods rely on Bluetooth technology, and well, you've got to go into airplane mode.
Not to mention, those in-flight entertainment systems aren't exactly configured to hook up to those MacBook-toting, vest-wearing ways.
Bring those old-school, corded headphones onto the flight. The plus side: You don't even have to charge these.
Might as well spare yourself the terrible acoustics of those free headphones? Life is too short to spend all that time in silence. 😂
