In-flight cellphones unlikely to get warm welcome

0

Mobile phones use on board of a plane is currently banned by most airlines as they may interfere with aircraft electronics as well as disrupt communications on the ground. This is about to change from December of this year, after U.S. federal regulators' revisions. According to a survey, conducted by Carlson Wagonlit Travel, 61 percent of the 2,100 business travelers and 650 travel managers quizzed are not in favor of this idea. The survey also reveals that 70 percent of the Europeans don't welcome in-flight cellphones, while North Americans with 57 percent in opposition appear to be more tolerant to the idea. It seems that in-flight cellphones will join the list of annoyances for air passengers, currently headed by queuing for airport security checks, according to the survey.
