There is a reason behind cabin crew dimming the lights for takeoff and landing. It is usually done with the aim of improving the eyes of the team to the night. With the dimming of the lights everybody will not have to fumble around in case of an accident. The window blinds have to be up so that in case of an emergency the crew members can asses the safer side for evacuation.

Experiencing turbulence is a disturbing experience for every passenger though not dangerous at all. Planes do not move beyond 100 feet during turbulence even though they feel unstable.If you ever find the food served on the plane tasteless it is not the fault of the airline. When the plane is at thousands of meters above; there are pressure and low humid in the cabin that causes food to be tasteless. This environment everything has no taste.
