I was wondering if you could tell me why all the lights go off in the aircraft when it takes off. I'm off to Canada tomorrow at 4.15 pm and was just hoping that you might be able to fill me in!

Sorry I missed this post. The lights are turned off for take off and landing at night is so that in the unlikely event of having to evacuate the plane your eyes will not have to adjust to the darkness outside.
