    On transatlantic flights do they still have the last hour with you all sat in your seats with your hands in view and no trips to the plane potty thing?

    yeah it's much less time than it used to be. Now it's pretty much the last half hour whilst they descend into the airport

    The last 20 minutes of flights into NYC are quite like that...no one is allowed to move - and heaven help you if you get stuck in a holding pattern!

    Well I know when they begin the descent we must all sit. But I've never heard that we had to keep our hands visible.
