cinturón

objetos afilados (no c in objeto)

se prohibe correr (where else could you run but in the aisle?)

portátiles

bolso means bag, not sure it covers all carry-on's, laptops, briefcases, etc.

debajo del asiento

I'd wait for a native that is probably familiar with how these are actually said.

carry-on luggage equipaje de mano

One must turn off portable, wireless devices. (pagers, cell phones, PDAs, laptops, Ipods, etc.)

Don't ask someone to shut off his pacemaker, wristwatch, or hearing aid!

Well I originally it was cellphone. What about the grammar and word order, is it correct? - IHAVEFEVERFEVER, SEP 20, 2009
