Well - I don't have such a phone. Perhaps they'll do for that what they do for earphones and give them out to the passengers. Kind of a disposable cell phone. Or maybe even build it into the seat (or was that already mentioned).
I went to Zeeland once, Vlissingem, it's a nice place, but I have never been north of there, never seen Frisia, Denmark, never been to Heligoland, Norway, or Sweden. Perhaps it is all just too much like England to really motivate me, you know, you want to see something different when you travel.
I would have liked to have tried talking to a Frislander too, I hear English and Fris is very close.
I have a Frisian friend, but when he starts talking Frisian I can't make heads or tails of it. Nevertheless Friesland can be attractive if you like sailing and skating, and they have some nice historic cities like Leeuwarden. Recently I also viewed "Redbad" the series on tv which is about the war between the Frisians and the Franks: Redbad, King of the Frisians - Wikipedia[^]
Can not recommend the series though, although the photography is first class, the story is weak and lacking direction and the low rating on IMDB says enough: Redbad (2018) - IMDb[^]
Well I for one think it is a fantastic idea. Being too large and inflexible to lean down and twist my head far enough so that I can read the bloody fine print or hieroglyphic underneath the button is just not possible for me.
I have to stand, turn around and kneel to locate the buttons, retain the configuration, sit down and set the buttons by feel and memory. As a consequence I only ever use the big round button for seat up/down.
So you skinny little bugger leave the airline alone so they can give better service to us fat slobs who fly.

Why spend $5/seat on a button when you can make $5/customer by forcing them to install a spyware app.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
