The airline Air France will release the list of passengers of flight AF 447 only after checking the nationality of the passengers from the Federal Police in Brazil and after directly informing the relatives of missing passengers. For these reasons, there's no estimate of the time schedule for the release of the list of passengers to the press.
The airline Air France set up the Center for Management of the crisis in Paris (France). Family members can obtain information with Air France in Brazil in 0800 and 8,812,020 in Paris phone 33-1-5702-1055. The ANAC also assists families by telephone (61) 3366-9303 and (61) 3366-9307, the ANAC. These phones are exclusive to meet relatives of passengers.
As a requent flyer, I have always been lead to believe that lightning was not a danger to aircraft, as the body of the aircraft acted like a "faraday cage" allowing the electricity to flow arround the plane but not through it.
Have these planes been modified to allow mobile phone use?
