US considers allowing mobile phone use on planes

US considers allowing mobile phone use on planes - Telegraph

In a survey of 1,600 US adults cited by the Federal Aviation Administration(FAA), 51 per cent of respondents expressed negative reactions to in-flightphone calls and 47 per cent responded positively.

Many US airlines already offer onboard Wi-Fi, and could allow their passengersto make in-flight phone calls using programs such as Google Voice and Skype.However, virtually all US airlines ban the technology, because they saytheir customers don't want in-flight calls.

Last month the FAA announced that passengers on US airlines will be allowedto use portable electronic devices during take-off and landing for thefirst time, ending an "archaic" 50-year-old ban that has longfrustrated frequent fliers.

Under the new guidelines, gadgets such as smartphones, iPads, DVD players andvideo game consoles can be operated for the entire duration of both domesticand international flights.
