Secured cargo pockets aren't going to fail. I'm guessing that's also why the pouches are in a spot that's virtually impossible to reach during the ride, rather than on the seat in front of you.
Yeah, but let's think further: Now you can have the phone with you - again - until you are directly at the train. I see no difference to the situation before. Who guarantees and checks that really all cell phones
that were in line are going to the bags underneath the seats? You'd have to check everybody somehow, maybe with a phsycal check or with handy metal detectors. And that is what Robb supposed way, way ago what they could have done first hand to solve the problem.
Get me: I'm totally against the policy to give away the phone for a two hour line. But given the fact that they want no cell phone put out on the lift hill, I really see no improvement if not every person is checked individually. What could have, but isn't, been done the wohle time.
What I appreciate is, that it will be a bit more convenient for those who are not completely morons.
