Unusual camera behavior on airplane. (LED overhead lights)

After hearing the Pixel 2 XL's edges are not as responsive at times, screen flashing during lock or unlock, damaged oleophobic coating due to easy scratching, and some units shipping without Android, here's another camera issue. Most of the bugs in the past had to do with the phone's display, but now there's a new bug which is making the rounds and this one has got to do with Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL camera. According to a few folks and also witnessing this first hand, the camera starts to flicker or to better explain, appears to manifest a strobing effect when trying to take a photo or video around LED illumination.

It looks like the problem has been escalated in the forums, but unfortunately, this is just another hurdle for owners of Google's latest devices.
