I use flight mode 3 or 4 times per day. I've noticed after the update to that when Flight Mode is turned off the network connection isn't always restored.

Either a hashed or semi obscured signal strength symbol is shown or a hashed or semi obscured square box is shown where the signal strength meter is normally displayed.

Flight Mode has to be selected then deslected again at least once to restore the connection.

P.S. Forgot to say, phone is Xperia X

Same here on Xperia X, the mobile data connection icon comes up and then goes down again.

I can confirm this too on XA2 ( It's just stuck in a loop switching on and off

When I use flight mode my Xperia X (SFOS 3.0.2) eventually looses contact with the SIM card and tells me I have to restart the phone to get it back. Turning flight mode on and off doesn't help, neither removing and inserting the SIM card. I usually get the message when I turn flight mode off, but this morning I got the you-have-to-restart-the-phone-message just out of the blue when I had no intention to turn flight mode off. It has not been like this before.

This is still a big problem for me. It takes an extraordinarily long time for the network connection to be reestablished after Flight Mode has been switched off.

Is there any way to fix this or is there any plan to fix this bug in an update?

Is there any update on this?

The time it takes for my phone to re connect to the network after turning off Flight Mode is unacceptable.

It is significantly quicker to restore network connection by turning flight mode off, then shut down and reboot the phone, than it is to wait for the connection to be restored by just turning Flight Mode off. This defeats one of the purposes of using flight mode.
