Nice job guys. I can see it now. More oversight from the government and video cameras in the flt. deck.
 
I almost wish they were sleeping. At least sleeping is not blatantly being negligent. I do take some offense to the initial post. As a NWA pilot, I have never used my laptop in the cockpit. Two NWA pilots just embarrassed us all.
 
I dont mind laptops in route. However I do not allow 2 laptops in use at the same time. It is distracting and can lead to complacency.
