    The pilot almost crashed the plane, referring to vaping as smoking surely isn’t the big issue here?

    Can't believe he turned the air con / supply off to the cabin. He will be in packing depot Fasttech next week.

    No not the big issue but the issue I chose to highlight. The big issue in the story is obvious so I didn't think needed highlighting, mind you the issue i highlighted is also obvious but it's still hard for people to grasp the fact that vaping is not smoking.

    It is a bit similar though, don’t you think? Is it not understandable that people that don’t smoke or puff a vape might make the mistake? Even vapers posting on here sometimes say they are smoking.

    No I'm with Nick I think it's intentionally done to make the situation sound worse in this case like buzz words are used and yeah new vapers do come on the forum and refer to vaping as smoking and I wish they didn't too

    Are you saying you think the story is a made up lie to demonise vaping?
