Overheard on a Plane

On a flight from Guyana to Trinidad last week, the passenger behind me seems to be in possession of exciting new technology.

Pilot: Good afternoon from the flight deck. We are just awaiting air traffic control clearance and should be taxiing off in about 5 minutes, so we are on schedule to arrive on time in Piarco. Flying time is estimated to be 55 minutes this afternoon.

Purser: usual spiel about closing doors, turn off all electronic devices, turn off cellphones etc

Passenger: on the phone Yeah, ah have to turn off the phone now, so call me back in about 20 minutes. Yeah, yeah, I going change the chip, but call me back in 15 minutes, I have to turn off the phone now for takeoff.

I would have thought that in 20 minutes we would have been high above the earth, over waters. He must get excellent reception with that other chip.
