China tightens in-flight service rules
Aviation authorities have passed a new rule that will see airlines fined if they continue to serve passengers during take-off and landing. According to the decree, issued by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), airlines must ensure that cabin crew only start serving passengers after the fasten seatbelt sign has been switched off, and must stop whenever it is switched on. Chinese airlines are usually flexible on minor service issues, but the new CAAC rules called for a crackdown of safety infringements.
