(Rome) Mistral Air has announced that it will be equipping all machines chartered by the Vatican with a new "No In-Flight Interview" signal.

Representatives of the small Italian airlines informed reporters on Wednesday that the new signal, which is to join the familiar "No Smoking" and "Fasten Seatbelts" signs and remain illuminated at all times, would be installed immediately in all the machines in their fleet. While declining to comment on whether the change had been requested by the Vatican, a spokeswoman of the airlines reported that the cost of the refitting was being covered by a donor who wished to remain anonymous. In the unfortunate event of an interview occuring despite the new restriction, she said, rosaries would automatically drop from the overhead area.
