It's good that they try. Several years back I knew my flight was going to be late getting in to make a transfer. An old friend was driving to meet me at the airport - a good 3 hour drive - and I would not be there for him to pick up. I tried to call him from the airplane phone they used to have in the back of seats (which ended up not being in time and he had to stay over night in Des Moines). A day later I tried to use my credit card, but this "suspicious activity" on the airplane got it blocked. It took longer than expected to get it activated again, but I appreciated the diligence.
