The only reason I can see for enabling this in production is for Data Guard. These are , obviously, my personal opinions. I don't see many scenarios (if any) where I would flash an entire production database back as that would mean data loss.

To turn it off, you need to shutdown, startup mount, alter database disable flashback database, alter database open.

We use FB DB pretty regularly to test application upgrades. We have thought to explore this feature in prod dbs and looking for real-life experience. Has anyone implemented it in production DB's. If yes, what lessons have you learned that you can share?
