It's been a time sense I last went some place on a commercial A/L but I 
noticed just the other day while watching a 737 land at RENO that the 
cabin lights were dimmed or turned off on final approach. I was wondering 
if anybody knows why the A/L (not all do this I'm sure?) do this? I think 
I can rest assured that it's not not due to glare in the pilots rear-view 
mirror :-).
Any answer is better than none RIGHT?
